Will of the people

As I traveled all across Pennsylvania in April, I heard countless people tell me they do not want taxpayer funding of abortion.

It's no surprise.

CNN and Quinnipiac polls show a strong majority of Americans, including most women, don't want public money to be spent on abortion. State House Bill 818 is the will of the people.

The bill would stop elective abortion funding in our state health insurance exchange, which will be created by the Affordable Care Act.

Unless House Bill 818 passes, the commonwealth will be in the abortion business next year, reversing Pennsylvania's longstanding policy against public funding of abortion.
