In April 2007, then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer introduced the Reproductive Health and Privacy Protection Act (RHAPP), declaring that “‘New York State [would] continue to be a beacon of civil rights and protection of women’s rights.’” The RHAPP would have guaranteed a fundamental “right” to abortion at any point in a pregnancy.

House Committee Holds Hearing On Baby Body Parts Black Market
On April 20, 2016, the House Select Panel on Infant Lives held a hearing on the grisly and inhumane practice of selling the organs and tissues of aborted babies.

Allies Unite Against Assisted Suicide
As a Christian, pro-life organization, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms strongly opposes the push to legalize physician-assisted suicide. Assisted suicide denies the dignity and worth of every human life; makes physicians and pharmacists complicit in the taking of innocent life; gives insurers a financial incentive to steer terminally ill persons toward suicide to avoid paying…
Planned Parenthood Continues To Profit From Taxpayer Dollars
It is no secret that the State of New York’s public policies in regard to abortion are horrendous.

New York State Achieves High Rank – On The Wrong List
If you have lived in New York State for any length of time, you are probably aware that our state does not stack up well against other states in some important respects.

Senator Bonacic Offers Baffling Support For Abortion Bill
In June 2013, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s morally repugnant abortion expansion bill was blocked by one vote. Members of both parties voted against abortion expansion, with every single Republican senator voting “no.” Unfortunately, one of those same Republican senators has now flip-flopped.
Heavy-Handed Prosecutor Hits Pro-Lifers That Exposed Planned Parenthood
A Texas grand jury called upon to investigate Planned Parenthood has done the unthinkable.

In her opening remarks on the Senate floor, State Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) expressed the hope that the Legislature could pass a complete Women’s Equality Act (WEA) in 2016. However, with the exception of the late-term abortion expansion proposal supported by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and…
