Proclamation congratulating People Concerned for the Unborn Child (PCUC) upon the occasion of its 50th anniversary.

 

body

     WHEREAS, People Concerned for the Unborn Child (PCUC) is a volunteer-led organization in the Brookline neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh that is dedicated to acting on behalf of all innocent life threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia; and

     WHEREAS, founded in 1969 in the kitchen of Mary Winter, PCUC works tirelessly to affirm that the unborn child is a human being entitled to the same rights as all other Americans; and

     WHEREAS, over the past 50 years, PCUC has been devoted to educating and raising awareness among the citizens of Allegheny County about the right to life through their newsletter, hosting prayer vigils, and providing support for expectant mothers and infants in need; and

     WHEREAS, every January, PCUC travels on their own time and at their own expense to Washington, D.C. to protest the Supreme Court’s decision, Roe v. Wade. By participating in the March for Life, PCUC is hopeful that the decision will be overturned and another trip to the United States Capitol will be unnecessary;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that we, Allegheny County Council Members Sue Means, Pat Catena and Sam DeMarco, do hereby congratulate People Concerned for the Unborn Child upon the occasion of its 50th anniversary, and we thank them for their continued dedication to acting on behalf of all innocent life.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto caused the Seal of the County of Allegheny to be affixed this 20th day of October 2019.
