abortion bill in NY

Question from Anonymous on 3/26/2008:

Dear Judie,

There is an abortion bill in NYS called the “Reproductive Health & Privacy Protection Act” (RHAPP). If passed this bill will:

ensure abortion-on-demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy. (even after Roe vs. Wade is overturned)

allow that a baby born alive after an abortion attempt would receive no support services.

repeal the current requirement that only doctors can perform abortions

suppress all efforts to enact an “Unborn Victims of Violence Act” by refusing to recognize the unborn child as a second crime victim in cases of assault against pregnant women.

The New York State Right to Life Committee, Inc. is heading a fight against this bill. I want to help the fight. Do you know if they would be the right place to donate funds to to help stop this bill from getting passed?

I think it is safe to say that every pro-life group in the state of New York is fighting this bill, and I just saw a headline yesterday that with the resignation of Governor Spitzer, the fate of the bill was in jeopardy.

As far as donating is conerned, I am sure that the state pro-life group is a worthy recipient of your funds for this particular activity.

  1. A coalition of various organizations has formed to fight Spitzer's radical abortion bill and to provide resources for individuals to take action. The action center website is http://www.abortionbill.org. Donations to help continue this work can be made on the organization's website: http://www.nyfpr.com/ways-you-can-help.html
