Come Listen, Learn and Connect at Pro-Life Town Hall Meetings


This April will be my third time traveling across the state for our annual Pro-Life Town Hall Tour.


Micaiah Bilger

The tour is one of the ways we bring the latest pro-life information to people all across the state. We’re planning to share up-to-date news on a variety of topics, including abortion trends in Pennsylvania, dealing with a poor prenatal diagnosis, the push for assisted suicide, the Affordable Care Act, Q&A and more.

I love the tour because we offer a pro-life perspective that people can’t get anywhere else. But most of all, I love having the opportunity to connect with people all across the state.

I love when a grandmother comes to me after a meeting and shares a picture of her grandson who was almost aborted. I love when a teenager eagerly asks me what she can do to help moms and babies. I love listening to the decades-long pro-lifers, because their stories encourage me to keep going strong. And I love talking with the people who aren’t sure where they stand on the life issues and are looking for answers.

Our Pro-Life Town Hall meetings are an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and connect with the people around us.

I hope you’ll join us in Ebensburg, Uniontown, Pittsburgh, Titusville, Erie, State College, Scranton, Nesquehoning, Easton, Philadelphia, Lancaster or Grove City. Click here for details.

And please take a moment to say, “Hello.” I’d love to connect with you.

Lancaster Teen’s Bathroom Birth Shows Need to Spread Word about Pregnancy Help

If you live in Central Pennsylvania, chances are you have heard about the tragic Lancaster County incident where a teenager gave birth in a school bathroom and threw her baby in the trash.

Officials say the baby was a boy at seven months gestation. They do not Unborn baby pictureknow yet whether he was born alive.

This story reminds me just how much we need to get the word out about the help available to pregnant women and new mothers in desperate situations.

Pennsylvania has a safe haven law to help new mothers in crisis. The law allows a woman who feels she can’t take care of her baby to drop off the newborn (up to 28 days old) at a health care facility, no questions asked.

Here’s more from a local news station:

Registered Nurse Donna Carr leads the ‘Safe Haven’ program through Lancaster General Health.

She says she knows the stress an unplanned pregnancy can bring, and in extreme cases, the danger that follows that stress. “I think the most obvious thing is denial. I’m just overwhelmed and I shutdown. I don’t tell anybody about it then when labor comes they’re in a panic.”

Mary Steffy is also a registered nurse. She says women need help for many different reasons. “Stories we’ve heard are they were scared to tell their parents. Maybe they broke up with their boyfriend and didn’t want to face the fact that they are now pregnant. Those are all things we can help them deal with through that.”

Please help spread the word that help is available, whether a woman wants to raise her child, make an adoption plan, or take her baby to a safe haven.
