Dear Dr. O'Hara, Ms. Hill, Ms. Vitale, Mr. Geer, & Mr. Ciccocioppo

As I understand it, Pennsylvania Senator Charles McIlhinney, Jr (10th) successfully put through an amendment to Senate Bill 3, yesterday. Is this a positive development or not?

After numerous, unsuccessful attempts to speak with Senator McIlhinney about Senate Bill 3, I briefly spoke with him in Harrisburg on May 23. In no uncertain terms, Senator McIlhinney told me that he intended to support Senate Bill 3. He made absolutely no mention of an amendment.

Though Senator McIlhinney is a parishioner of Our Lady of Mt Carmel in Doylestown and a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (a Catholic fraternal organization), he has also been listed by Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC as one of their "pro choice endorsed candidates."

Knowing Senator McIlhinney's track record, I fear that the McIlhinney amendment will weaken Senate Bill 3.

Your comments on the McIlhinney Amendment would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
