PROTECTING HUMAN LIFE
The Bible teaches that each person is made in the image of God, and that human life is sacred. Abortion is morally wrong, is the primary justice issue of the 21st century, and should be unlawful unless it is medically necessary to save a mother's life. Given the unfortunate legality of abortion, NYCF PAC supports legislative proposals that would make abortion significantly rarer. Specifically, NYCF PAC supports legislation that would require waiting periods, informed consent, and prior ultrasounds, that would make taxpayer funding unavailable for abortion, that would ban sex selection abortion, and that would mandate parental involvement in abortion decisions made by minors.

They’re seeking to sow confusion among the voting electorate. Take for example, this account from the Capital Region. On November 1, 2018, an article from the Times Union incorrectly stated…Read More
