Religious Support for the PA Agenda for Women’s Health

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Our faith-based group, the Unitarian Universalist Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network, is proud to have been one of two faith-based groups invited to the May 11 press conference in Harrisburg where the Pennsylvania Agenda for Women’s Health was presented to the General Assembly.

As Unitarian Universalists we support the inherent worth and dignity of every person. And we understand that women in Pennsylvania do not always have access to healthy conditions or fairness in the workplace. Therefore, the package of more than 13 bills contained in this agenda are critical for both promoting healthy families and contributing to Pennsylvania’s overall economic strength.

We feel it is vital that liberal religious voices support the bipartisan effort behind the PA Agenda for Women’s Health so that our legislators can continue moving Pennsylvania forward.
