New York (NY) State has more abortions per capita than any other state in the union. At the same time, pro-life pregnancy centers in NY have the capacity to serve only a minuscule percentage of women considering abortion…except in Rochester, home of CompassCare. The pro-life infrastructure in NY is so small it is like trying to douse a house engulfed in flames with the bucket of suds left over from washing the car in the driveway.

Pro-life people understand that for women facing unplanned pregnancy this is not a political choice. She feels like she has no choice at all.
When New York’s legislature passed the now infamous Reproductive Health Act (RHA) in January, the nation staggered and drew back in shame and horror. People are shocked and disgusted at the barbarity of a State legislature applauding the fabricated human right to kill preborn boys and girls. It was as if people of conscience suddenly
The Reproductive Health Act (RHA) is now law, making abortion a fundamental right and deregulating it through all nine months of pregnancy. Why did the NY legislature do this? What does this mean for pro-life Christians? Why did NY pass the RHA? They are preparing for the overturning of Roe v Wade, which will push the
By now you have probably heard that after years of failed attempts the New York legislature overwhelmingly passed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA).

Simeon of Jerusalem (Luke 2:25a) is not described as a priest or a prophet, though he may have been. Scripture does not give us any details about his age, his family, or his social status. The Holy Spirit describes Simeon not by any fleeting external measure, but by the weight of his character: righteous and
The 2019 New York legislature is promising to be the most pro-abortion in U.S. history. They plan to pit the fabricated right of abortion (see Reproductive Health Act) against the foundational human right of religion, practiced by pro-life people who want to help women have their babies (see Pregnancy Center Investigation Bill). When government usurps
According to the recently released NY State Vital Statistics, this is the single largest drop in the history of Monroe County. Not only is abortion at an all-time low for Monroe County since New York legalized the practice in 1970, it is down 58% in just eight short years (See graph to the right). The
Having the most pro-life acting President since Roe v Wade is heating up the abortion battle. Fear of overturning the 1973 Supreme Court decision is driving liberal states to fever-pitched lawmaking frenzies. Places like New York have two goals: 1) Deregulate abortion, and 2) Regulate pro-life physicians and pregnancy centers. New York attempted to totally
