The New York State 2018 legislative session ended this morning at 1:49 am. No abortion expansion or assisted suicide legislation passed into law this year! Thank you to the New York State Right to Life Committee for keeping up the pressure in Albany and to everyone who contacted their legislators over the past few weeks.
April 23, 2018—Spring Valley, NY. On April 28, a pro-life rally will be held at the Planned Parenthood facility on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, starting at 11 a.m. This rally is one of more than 100 taking place outside Planned Parenthood centers across the United States, marking the third annual National Day of Prayer and Protest Against Planned Parenthood.
We hope you’ve heard the good news that there is no abortion expansion in the 2019 New York State Budget that was passed last week.
So thank you all for your prayers, your letters and phone calls to the senators, and the emails that you sent. Thank you especially to the prolifers of North Rockland who responded to our targeted, special alert to contact prolife Senator Larkin.
Unfortunately, abortion expansion may come up again as a regular bill during the legislative session, which ends in June. If so, we’ll let you know.
But for now, just enjoy Easter and Passover Week and know that you spoke up when it counted! Great work!!
And if you have a moment, please email Senate Majority Leader Flanagan and Sen. Larkin and just tell them thank you for their efforts to halt the expansion of abortion in New York.

Sen. John J. Flanagan: email@example.com
The final NYS budget is due on April 1, and as we approach that date the abortion expansion proposal is still a horrible possibility.
Contained in the budget are plans to radically modify NYS law. The changes would allow abortions to be performed for all 9 months of pregnancy, non-doctors could be empowered to perform abortions, and babies born alive after an abortion could be left to die of neglect and starvation.
Pro-abortion forces have been trying to expand abortion in New York for years. Meeting failure, they’re working around the normal legislative process by trying to push their plans through in the New York budget.
Please contact your state senator immediately. The message: Please oppose all abortion expansion proposals (S.7511) in Gov. Cuomo’s budget bill.
