CHILD USA wrote this amicus brief in support of an Application for Invocation of King’s Bench Jurisdiction filed by Governor Tom Wolf and Acting Secretary Leigh Chapman in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in which they ask the Court to invalidate the General Assembly’s proposed amendment to the state constitution that would deny the right to abortion care in Pennsylvania. This brief explains the unique dangers pregnant youth and victims of child sexual abuse, incest, and human trafficking face as a result of restrictive abortion laws.
