Governor Tom Wolf was joined by stakeholders and community members to discuss the damaging effects of the anti-choice legislation moving through the general assembly and reaffirmed his commitment to protect reproductive rights in Philadelphia.
"Pennsylvanians have a right to make their own health care decisions with the confidence that they are receiving the best possible care from their clinician and not bound in miles of red tape," said Gov. Wolf. "While politicians claim to be pro-life, they are actually anti-choice and anti-choice legislation doesn't help pregnant women or doctors. These bills don't reduce maternal mortality, improve health care outcomes for pregnant people or babies, or provide any support that would help a person's circumstance."
Gov. Wolf was joined by Signe Espanoza the Interim Executive Director for Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania Advocates (PPPA).
