William Wilberforce was a British abolitionist of slavery who fought tirelessly to bring an end to his country’s greatest sin, chattel slavery. As a legislator working in the midst of a corrupt government, Wilberforce serves as a model of godly leadership in the civil realm.
Abolitionists of abortion in PA are presently in search of our own “Wilberforce,” a legislator who will make a stand for justice toward our preborn neighbors. At the present, ASPA members are speaking in person with senators and representatives. On the roadmap are functional changes to the site that will allow users to email their legislators in the capitol, directly through AbolishAbortionPA.com. Along with the message will be articles to spread the abolitionist message around the capitol.

Ultimately, this is a war of ideas. We need our legislature to recognize and genuinely understand that they are under the authority of Jesus Christ, and that they will give account to Him for how they rule. Sadly, many legislators are ruled principally by what their constituents desire, no matter how wicked the desire may be.
As a constituent however, you have a voice that will be heard, if you take the time to write, call, and meet with the legislator. The impact that your voice has in Harrisburg cannot be overstated.
There are three ways you can help the Abolitionist Society of Pennsylvania bring abortion law into conflict with biblical ideas.
- Action Alerts: Sign up to receive alerts at crucial moments when we need the legislature to hear from Christians. We will provide a form for you to fill out, and a suggested message that you can personalize. Together with your message, we will send relevant articles to your legislator(s) that provide additional information, arguments and biblical ideas.
- Schedule a Meeting: A bill of abolition completely outlaws the intentional killing of preborn children as homicide, with no exceptions. You can schedule a meeting with your state representative and senator, to ask them to put forward a house or senate bill of total abolition. The Abolitionist Society of Pennsylvania will walk you through this process, and someone may be available to come with you to the meeting, if desired.
- Share Updates: You can sign up to receive periodic updates on this initiative. If you share the update on social media, your work will help to drive traffic to this website, which opens a door for us to present the abolitionist message to your friends, family and contacts.
Today I walked into the local office of Meghan Schroeder, the representative for Bucks Country district 29. To my surprise, I ran into an old college friend, Sean O'Connor, [...]
