The Republicans in the Pennsylvania House of Representative have introduced the following pieces of legislation restricting abortion access.
House Bill 1500, known as the Down Syndrome Protection Act, would make it illegal for a person to get an abortion if the fetus has a Down Syndrome diagnosis.
House Bill 118, known as The Unborn Child Dignity Act, would require providers to offer the option for burial or cremation after a loss of a pregnancy.
House Bill 904, known as the Heartbeat Bill, would ban abortions if a doctor detects a heartbeat, unless the procedure is deemed medically necessary.
House Bill 1095, known as Sentencing for Homicide of an Unborn Child, would impose mandatory life imprisonment, linking an abortion to homicide.
