Respect Life

The NYS Catholic Conference has provided a fact sheet explaining why the proposed Reproductive Health Act is not merely codifying Roe V Wade.

RHA must be examined not only for what it would newly enact into law, but also for what it would repeal from current law.

Please contact your representative soon. The Senate plans to pass it quickly in 2019.

Codifying Roe 2019

The Youth Buses for Life received a scholarship to attend the Students for Life of America Conference in Maryland the day after the DC March for Life. The conference (which includes lunch & dinner) runs from 9AM-7PM on Saturday, January 19th. We'll board the buses after the conference and drive home. We will arrive in the North Country on Sunday, January 20th at approximately 6AM Massena and 4AM Watertown. The conference will not raise the cost of our pilgrimage. Thanks to Students for life of America for this opportunity!

Youth Buses for Life online registration starts October 1st!



**The Youth Buses for Life itinerary has been updated to include the "Life is Very Good" Mass and Rally, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Arlington.**
