Other Than Newtown, Which PA Municipalities Have Supported Women's Reproductive Rights? | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

By a vote of 3-1 The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors (BOS) at its September 28, 2022, meeting, approved a Women’s Reproductive Rights Resolution, which by my analysis is the first such resolution passed by a Bucks County Township.

Some people and publications claim that at least 14 other PA townships and boroughs have passed identical or very similar resolutions.  An article in the Bucks County Beacon, for example, reports that "Approximately 14 Pennsylvania municipalities have issued resolutions with matching verbiage [emphasis added] [to the Women's Reproductive Rights Resolution recently passed by Newtown Supervisors]." 

The article further states: "The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) provides template-like wording to its member communities to ensure that every municipality conveys the same message to legislators."


How true are these claims? Which PA Municipalities Actually Passed Women’s Reproductive Rights Resolutions/Ordinances? How similar were they to Newtown's version?
