TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH ACT!

Act Now to Stop Abortion Expansion!

We are coming to the last four weeks of the legislative session and the head of the largest pro-abortion advocacy group, NARAL, has confirmed that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is very close to introducing his bill to expand abortion, especially late-term abortion in New York State.
While the governor has not yet allowed the public to see the language of his bill, if it is similar to a bill he endorsed in January, it would allow more late-term abortions and permit them at storefront clinics. It would also allow non-doctors to perform surgical abortions and would forbid any commonsense regulations, like parental notification for minors.
Now is the time to act. Even if you already have sent a message to your elected officials, please do so again immediately, and share the alert at the link below with your friends through email, Facebook and Twitter. Let the Governor and your state lawmakers know that, no matter how it is packaged, you oppose more abortions in New York, the abortion capital of the nation, where one out of every three pregnances is terminated.
Send a message to them now by clicking the link below and sending the pre-written, fully editable email. If you use social networking, please also take a moment to click the Facebook and Twitter links below and follow us there to get the very latest news.
Take Action Now!

THE KNIGHTS AND IMMIGRATION REFORM!

Dear Worthy NY State Council Leaders,

Considering our State Deputy Elect Carmine’s strong support for our church’s position on Immigration Reform, I was pleased to have the opportunity to take action for this cause.

I encourage you to do the same by clicking the “Take Action” link below.  Once you have entered your info, why not add yourself to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops email list, for Immigration and possibly other issues.

What a Great way to practice our faith and stand up with our church!

Please remember that many of these immigrants may well become the newest members of our order.

Vivat Jesus!
