From the Catholic Conference of New York State, one of the most heavily Catholic states in the nation comes this terrible news:
Governor Eliot Spitzer has put forth a radical abortion proposal that would go far beyond Roe vs. Wade. The Governor’s bill would:
• Force Catholic hospitals to allow abortions;• Force all insurance plans, including those of Catholic employers, to cover abortion; • Legalize abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, for virtually any reason;• Make abortion immune from any reasonable state regulation such as parental notification, informed consent, or restrictions on taxpayer funding;• Repeal current law that requires doctors to perform abortions and allow any "health care practitioner" to provide it.
Take action now and tell your lawmakers to oppose this extreme bill! For the sake of pregnant women and their unborn children, please take a minute to communicate your opposition to your state Senate and Assembly representatives.
