Reproductive Health Act
Help us stop the radically pro-abortion "Reproductive Health Act" (RHA)
The 2013 legislative session began on January 9th with Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address. The Governor said that this is the year he intends to enact the Reproductive Health Act (S.438). This abortion bill is so extreme and unpopular that he intends to hide it in a larger bill.
It is critically important that we show our support for Life!
The Reproductive Health Act seeks to have abortion declared a ‘fundamental right’ in New York State, prohibiting even basic and widely supported protections, such as parental consent and limits on government funding of abortion. The law would allow any "health care practitioner" to perform an abortion, enshrine late-term abortion in New York State law, jeopardize any agency that does not refer for abortion and seriously threaten conscience protections for hospitals and medical professionals.
