My Catholic Life
A Unified Voice for All New York State Catholics
The New York State Catholic Conference represents the Bishops of the state in working with government to shape laws and policies that pursue social justice, respect for life and the common good. We provide a unified voice for the eight dioceses of the state to speak on such issues as education, marriage, health care, poverty, abortion, euthanasia, social services, criminal justice and the environment. We apply the principles of Catholic social teaching to critical issues of the day and encourage citizen involvement in the legislative process.
URGENT -- Only 15 legislative session days are left in Albany. Yesterday the head of Naral said Gov. Cuomo is very close to releasing the text of his Abortion Expansion Act. Please take just one minute to email your legislators and the governor at the link below. A message is already pre-written, but you can edit it as you like. Tell them to reject abortion expansion! Clearly the strategy is to push the legislation through without public input at the very end. Please share this link far and wide so we can stop this radical bill.

Fordham Law professor on Abortion Expansion Act: All state legislators should reread the following key provision of Roe because it applies to them: "We repeat, however, that the state ... has still another important and legitimate interest in protecting the potentiality of human life."
