VIDEO: Helm calls for equal custody rights for parents

Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin) is working on getting legislation passed that would call for at least 40-60 custody rights when parents are going through a divorce. 

Helm stated that all to often custody is extremely unequal and studies show a child does better when both parents are involved in their day to day activities.

Bills introduced to bolster rights of rape victims

Bills introduced to bolster rights of rape victims

Bills to be introduced in both chambers Monday would seek to strengthen the rights of rape victims who have conceived a child as a result of a rape and decide to carry the pregnancy to term.

Due to a current loophole in Pennsylvania law, rapists can still challenge for parental and/or visitation rights with children born out of the rape.
