AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
NOTE: This is a little lengthy, while numbers 2 and 3 can be acted upon in the next couple days, it is of utmost importance that you act on number 1 on Monday!
1.) H.B. 288 – “Emergency Contraceptives” required in PA Hospitals?
2.) Homosexual Activists Do Not Like President Bush’s Nominee for Surgeon General
3.) City Council Rescinds Resolution Proclaiming
1.) On June 6 H.B. 288 was re-committed to the House Rules Committee. This bill would require hospitals and other emergency facilities to ‘promptly’ provide victims of sexual assault with information about “emergency contraceptives” including Plan B. Hospitals are also to readily supply the regimen of emergency contraceptives. One thing this bill does not require is for the hospital to report the sexual assault. Other violent crimes must be reported to law enforcement.
The bill also says a non-profit chosen by the Department of Health will develop and provide the ‘medically and factually accurate” information. It also says that the non-profit shall be “the prime grantee that arranges for the provision of services to sexual violence and rape victims.” I wonder which non-profit the Department of Health will choose? Planned Parenthood??
