As a woman, I applaud those women in the General Assembly who took the lead in ensuring that Pennsylvania taxpayer dollars would not be spent on abortion under ObamaCare.

Thanks to its female sponsor and those women, Republican and Democrat, who stood with her, House Bill 818 passed by a resounding 144-53 vote in the House, sailed through the Senate and has now been signed into law.

National polls show the vast majority of American taxpayers, including 70 percent of women taxpayers, do not want their tax dollars to be spent on abortion under federal health-care reform.

Thanks to these female public servants for listening to the voices of women throughout the commonwealth and safeguarding their hard-earned tax dollars.
