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.

NYCF PAC opposes abortifacient pills and the morning-after pill. NYCF PAC supports legislation to protect against human cloning, embryo-destructive stem cell research, euthanasia, and assisted suicide.

Back in June, the Supreme Court of the United States decided the case of Janus v. AFSCME. In Janus, the Court “barred public-sector labor unions from forcing non-members to pay agency fees.” The decision was a win for social conservatives because it will deprive public-sector labor unions of a significant amount of funds; given that public-sector unions in New…Read More
