Below, you will find a sample script for contacting your elected officials. This script is about Senate Bill 956, the No Right to Abortion Constitutional Amendment. This amendment is the most immediate threat to abortion access in Pennsylvania. If passed and later approved on the ballot, this bill could make it easier for anti-abortion lawmakers in Pennsylvania to severely restrict or ban abortion when Roe is overturned. You can learn more about the amendment here.
“Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling from (CITY) as a constituent of (LEGISLATOR NAME). I am a supporter of Planned Parenthood and abortion access in Pennsylvania. I recently learned that the Pennsylvania state legislature is considering a constitutional amendment that proposes to permanently change our state constitution and take away protection for abortion access in Pennsylvania. Now is a time when our state lawmakers need to reaffirm their commitment to sexual and reproductive health, not strip away fundamental rights for Pennsylvanians.
I am calling to tell my state Senator/Representative that I support abortion access in Pennsylvania, and this constitutional amendment is not in the best interest of their constituents. Our elected officials must prioritize their constituents by expanding access to essential health care, not restricting it.
Thank you for your time.”
