Our Rev. Jen Raffensperger spoke at a rally in the state Capitol to warn against the expected passage of legislation that would put an anti-abortion amendment to the state constitution up for referendum.
“We know that when abortion care is not available, women die, and we also know that prohibitions on abortion will not curtail the number of abortions taking place, they will simply make abortions more dangerous and life threatening,” said Jen Raffensperger, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of York.
Raffensperger also read a letter, signed by dozens of clergy members, encouraging lawmakers to not view religiously-minded Pennsylvanians as a single, conservative bloc.
“People of faith believe many different things about the beginnings of human life,” Raffensperger said. “No one religious viewpoint should decide American law.”
