From an email I recently received
Many of you are making probable thinking about the March for Life commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade and yet in the midst of that, as I notified you last week, there have been some serious developments regarding the so called “Reproductive Health Act.” it is important from now on that we refer to this as the “Unlimited Abortion Act”, because that is more accurate in terms of conveying what this act seeks to do. It removes all current limitations and would make any future limitations virtually impossible. NO penalty for doctors performing abortions 24 weeks and above. Non-doctors authorized to perform abortions. Partial birth abortion a great possibility because it will be “LEGAL to 9 MONTHS” (how else can they abort a full term baby except burning the baby with a saline solution abortion).
All the state-wide pro-life groups have joined in a new coalition to defeat the bill. We’ve taken the name New Yorkers for Life, and have started up a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NYS4Life) and Twitter account (https://twitter.com/NYS4Life). We would like to use these as rally points for pro-lifers, to express their opposition to the bill and to get more information. Please spread the word to everyone you know, encourage people to “Like” the page on Facebook, and share it with their friends and contacts, and to “Follow” it on Twitter.
The New York State Catholic Conference has put up an alert on the bill: http://nyscatholicconference.capwiz.com/nyscatholicconference/issues/alert/?alertid=62331936&type=ML&show_alert=1. Please let others know about this, and urge them to contact their legislators.
There is more to follow, and further resources are currently being developed which we will provide you with.
Of course, the most important thing to do at this point is to pray, pray and fast, especially for the conversion of heart for our elected officials who are seeking to promote this.
