Pro-Life But Anti-Corbett? Think again...
There is currently a bill in the PA Legislature referred to as the Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Bill. This bill, if passed, would require a pregnant mother to view an ultrasound of her baby prior to a mandatory waiting period before she could kill her child.
Tom Corbett has promised that if this bill is passed and it comes to his desk, HE WILL SIGN IT.
So here is your scenario -
Let's suppose that for the sake of argument the election is held tomorrow, and you hold the deciding vote. Dan Onorato has 4,999,999 votes; Tom Corbett has 4,999,999 votes and there have been 100,000 votes cast for a write-in candidate. When you walk into the polling booth, how will you vote?
Now let's add one more "twist" to this scenario -
Let's also suppose that we are assured that next year the House and Senate will pass the Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Counseling Law and this bill will go to the desk of our next governor. Again - how will you vote?
Finally, let's also suppose that if Tom Corbett is sitting in that chair and he signs it, that there will be a 17-year-old young lady named Ashley who will go for an abortion, but after viewing the ultrasound of her baby will change her mind and allow her baby - a little girl named Hannah - to live. Again - the bill will be signed by Tom Corbett; it will NOT be signed by Dan Onorato.
