Students at the Diocesan Youth Rally visited the Respect Life table to spiritually adopt a baby in danger of abortion. The students were invited to name their child and pray for the baby for 9 months. Each received Archbishop Fulton Sheen's Spiritual Adoption Prayer and entered the baby's name in the "Book of Life" which was presented at closing Mass. Some students were creative and used their name tags as baby holders: Sydney and Ciara LeRoy (Malone), Hannah Belknap (Hammond), Maggie Marceau (Malone), Liam O'Neil (Massena).

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.
