Pennsylvania

Other Anti-Choice Law

Pennsylvania has created additional threats to privacy and choice by adding anti-choice language to its state code to express its opposition to abortion and its intent to restrict the right to choose.

"In every relevant civil or criminal proceeding in which it is possible to do so without violating the Federal Constitution, the common and statutory law of Pennsylvania shall be construed so as to extend to the unborn the equal protection of the laws and to further the public policy of this commonwealth encouraging childbirth over abortion."

18 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann. § 3202(c) (Enacted 1982).
