HB 1077, the so-called "Women's Right to Know" Act bill, operates under the guise that women aren't smart enough to understand their own bodies. It requires all women seeking an abortion to be subjected to a mandatory ultrasound at least 24 hours in advance. It requires the ultrasound screen to be aimed toward the woman's face but 'permits her to avert her eyes' and also requires that she deliver a print of the image to her physician in order to have the procedure. The PA Medical Society and other medical groups have already come out in opposition to this incredible invasion of the physician/patient relationship. Your Representative can stop this demeaning and unnecessary attack by voting NO on HB 1077, but we need your help!
This petition is aimed at getting signatures from all those who are involved in the field of health care - students of all fields (medical, dental, nursing, PA, etc), physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners, prehospital care providers, assistants and all those who provide medical care to patients. By signing this petition, you, as a health care provider, are helping to send a clear message to Pennsylvania's lawmakers that YOU are opposed to this horrible law.
Even if you are not a health care provider, your signature will make a difference! Sign this petition and share it with everyone you know that cares about human rights and patients' rights. Stop this madness before it spills over into other areas of health care!
