'Let our voices be heard on this issue loud and clearly'

I recently read on LifeNews.com that Putnam County passed the pro-life resolution on April 2nd to rebuke Governor Cuomo for passing the Reproductive Healthcare Act. County Legislator Ginny Nacerino said “… the majority of Putnam County residents stood shoulder to shoulder with me on this.”

This is great news and I think Orange County, as well as all the counties in New York, should do this to show Governor Cuomo that we are against his barbaric and diabolical abortion law. It doesn’t mean that he will repeal the law but at least it will show him what the recent Marist poll says, that most Americans, including those who are pro-choice, do not support abortion on demand, with no restrictions, after 24 weeks.

This morning I called our legislator in Warwick, Barry Cheney and left him a message asking him to start a resolution for Orange County to rebuke Governor Cuomo in alliance with Putnam County. Please join me by contacting him at 845-395-2011 or email him at bcheney@orangecountygov.com.

If you don’t live in Warwick, please contact your local legislator. You can find him/her on the Orange County Legislature website at www.orangecountygov.com/903/legislature.

We must let our voices be heard on this issue loud and clearly because as you can see, the other side is awfully loud in forcing their barbaric agenda on the most innocent and helpless of us all. And I include in that the scared and often lonely pregnant mothers in crisis who need to know that they are not alone and that abortion is not their only choice.

For help, contact Birthright at 1-800-550-4900 or at www.birthright.org, My Choice Pregnancy Center at www.mychoiceppc.com, Faith House at www.faithhouseny.org, and Good Counsel at www.goodcounselhomes.org for just a few of the many places a pregnant woman in crisis can go for help. Also, if you’ve had an abortion and are looking for healing, contact The Sisters of Life at www.hopeandhealing@sistersoflife.org, Lunima-Hope and Healing after Abortion at 877-586-4621 or www.postabortionhelp.org, and Rachel’s Vineyard at 877-467-3463 or 866-482-5433 or www.rachelsvineyard.org.

Thank you.
