Dear Editor:

There is nothing more sacred than the sanctity of life. It is truly a gift that has been provided to every human being on Earth from God — and it becomes a gift that we pass down to our children.

Unfortunately, this gift is being taken from countless lives here in Pennsylvania, due to the politicization of the right-to-life issue. There is something we can do about it.

Sen. Doug Mastriano and Rep. Stephanie Borowicz have introduced companion bills in the Pennsylvania General Assembly that will forbid physicians from conducting an abortion if they can determine the baby has a heartbeat. Thanks to 21st century medicine, more than 90 percent of all pregnancies are viable when a heartbeat can be detected. We believe relying on this scientific fact will place the focus where it truly belongs — protecting the child.

Please encourage your state legislators to protect all children by supporting Senate Bill 912 and House Bill 1977.
