Governor Wolf’s Road Trip for Planned Parenthood? Hundreds of people across Pennsylvania have signed our petition calling out the governor’s continued advocacy for the largest abortion business in the state.

Boyertown? After Judge Edward G. Smith ruled on August 25th that the Boyertown Area School District can continue to violate the bodily privacy rights of their students, the legal team involved has 30 days to file an appeal. Preparations have been ongoing for an appeal, which should be announced soon. The next step would then be the case proceeding to the U.S. Court of Appeals.
