Action Needed for “School Choice Now Act”

A message from the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference:

Thank you for all your continued support of Catholic education! We need one more big push from all our Catholic education stakeholders to be successful.

Contact your members of Congress and ask them to support the new “School Choice Now Act” and include all Catholic school students and teachers in the emergency relief package currently being negotiated.

Here is more from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops:

COVID-19 has contributed to the permanent closure of 138 Catholic schools across 23 states.  Additionally, internal surveys show ten percent of Catholic schools are now uncertain if they can open their doors this fall. That means as many as 500 or more Catholic schools could be in jeopardy.

As the Senate prepares its next aid bill, we ask that the next COVID relief package include immediate assistance to families through federally-funded scholarships.

The Alexander-Scott “School Choice Now Act” provides one-time, emergency funding for scholarship-granting organizations in each state; and provides permanent dollar-for-dollar
federal tax credits for contributions to scholarship granting organizations.

Please contact your U.S. Representative and Senators today to request support of the Alexander-Scott “School Choice Now Act” in the base bill.

Ask the Governor to sign the Telemedicine Bill

The PA House and Senate have passed a Telemedicine Bill that will facilitate improved healthcare across the state. After intense debate in both chambers, the measure passed in a form that would prohibit its use for abortions. For this reason, Governor Wolf has promised to veto the bill.

PLEASE CONTACT THE GOVERNOR AND URGE HIM TO SIGN THE TELEMEDICINE BILL AND *NOT* VETO IT.

The Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference, Eric Failing, pointed out that a third of all abortions being done now are done so chemically. “If our pro-life prohibitions would be stripped out of the Telemedicine bill, the number of abortions in Pennsylvania would increase dramatically. Using Telemedicine for abortions is a stated goal for Planned Parenthood because they can do more chemical abortions, with fewer doctors and less overhead costs.”
Failing called on Governor Wolf to sign the bill.
“The Governor tells us every day how much he cares about human lives,” Failing said. “Now is the time to set aside politics and sign a bill into law that will save lives.”

Pa. Telemedicine Senate Bill 857

Yesterday the State Senate passed SB 857, a crucial bill that would increase access to telemedicine for people throughout Pennsylvania. The bill passed 29-21, mostly along party lines, with one Independent joining Republicans to vote in support of the bill. (The bill passed the PA House late last year with a bipartisan majority.)

The bill contains safeguard language that ensures it cannot be used to allow risky telemedication abortions by requiring a doctor to administer in-person and at a health facility any of the drugs flagged by the FDA with serious safety concerns, which includes the abortion drug Mifeprex.

However, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry – desiring another way of increasing their profits – are now attacking the 29 senators who voted YES on SB 857.

Please, join me in thanking the 29 common sense senators who passed a safe telemedicine bill to ensure that families all across PA are kept safe and healthy. Your voice matters and this is a great way to celebrate a life-protecting victory. Click here to send a message now.

Responding to a global healthcare crisis should not include expanding abortion access.

A safe telemedicine bill is what every Senator should have been able to agree upon yet all 21 Democrat senators voted against SB 857 because it did not allow the use of telemedicine to include remote abortions. It is important now to thank your senator for a good vote, and it is equally important to hold those who voted against it accountable.

If your senator voted against SB 857, let them know that now is not the time to allow politics to get in the way of crucial care in the midst of a pandemic.
