JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) cites anti abortion action in NY

Subject: Fwd: NYS Budget bill up for approval for April 1, 2018 includes late term Abortion expansion-ACT NOW

Good Afternoon All,

I am taking the liberty of sharing with you an email I received from Ed McEneney regarding a move by Governor Cuomo of NY to exband Abortion beyond the disgrace and abomination it already is and he has taken a move from the playbook of the United States Government by adding the Abortion Bill to a Proposed NYS Budget Bill up for a vote on April 1, 2018. I would respectfully ask you to read the email and Attachment and act or not according to your beliefs and values. Share it or not, your call. For those of you, as I am, not a resident of NYS, you may wish to keep an eye out for similar legislation in your own states whenever your budget bills come up for a vote.

By one count, since Roe v. Wade, 58 Million Babies have been killed in the United States since the Supreme Court played God in 1973. Goggle it if you wish to verify the number. It is a frightful number and it continues to grow.

Please consider a prayer for those precious Children whose lives were taken from them and the many women who continue to suffer the trauma of their decision to abort. There is no count on them but a story arises from time to time.

Thank you Ed. Thank you All. God Bless.

Phil Colon

I would like to bring to your attention very important news for your information and action.

New York State Budget Bill S.7511 / A.9511 up for approval April 1, 2018. In Relation to Late-Term Abortion Expansion (Part B) in the “Women’s Agenda” Article VII of the Budget Bill needs your attention. This legislation is one of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s non-fiscal “budget” bills that seeks to enact a multi-faceted new “women’s agenda,” similar to the “women’s equality act” put forth by the Executive in 2013. Part “B” of this legislation is a dangerous and unnecessary expansion of late-term abortion, and a leap into legalized infanticide. It should not be part of a budget bill and it should not become law. The Governor is using a NYS Budget legislation to expand late Term Abortions. I strongly urge you to oppose it.

In our current Public Health Law, there is a section that is called the “Baby Doe Law” (section 4164). Enacted in 1974, this law requires that whenever an abortion is performed after 20 weeks, a second doctor must be present whose responsibility is to take care of the child in case she is born alive. This should surely be uncontroversial – it is an element of basic humanity to provide care to a helpless vulnerable person. In fact, a related federal law, the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act was passed in 2002 by the House by a wide margin and the Senate by unanimous consent. Yet the Governor’s bill would repeal the Baby Doe Law. In other words, he would deny health care to a vulnerable helpless child, crying for her mother and struggling to survive. He would leave her fate in the hands of an abortionist, whose primary job is to kill her.

Respect Life is not an issue-driven response to the contempt for human life, but an answer that gives voice to Truth—to the deepest identity of each person—that you are loved into existence by a God whose image you reflect. It is through this lens we are asking all to step up and let your voices be heard to the legislature and protect life! NOW! Abortion expansion, has nothing to do with government finances, within the context of budget negotiations. While some of the “women’s agenda’ Article VII legislative proposals may have merit, they deserve to be voted on as individual policies/bills, as has been done in the past by the Senate on important women’s concerns such as human trafficking and pregnancy discrimination.

Please follow the attached communication which is also part of this week’s St. Patrick’s Church Bulletin on the web; you can easily copy the link and simply voice your opinion.  I urge you to oppose S.7511 unless Part B is completely stripped from the bill.

I also urge you to pass this along to your friends and family in Christ.

[JR: Hard to imagine a more anti-survival action by a species than abortion; makes it universally immoral. What if the child aborted was destined to cure cancer, run a 3 minute mile, or bring about world peace?]

Good Evening All,

On January 9, 2018, dear friends to several of us, proud Grandparents, Ed and Pat Riely, shared the wonderful news of the arrival of the lovely Maryn Marguerite Murtaugh. She measured 18 1/4 Inches Long, weighed in at 7 pounds 1 Ounce and quickly made her presence known. Tomorrow, March 9, 2018 at 5:30 PM, Baby Maryn will be 2 Months old and I thought it would be an appropriate time for me to share the news with those of you who know Ed and Pat and were not aware of Ms. Maryn arriving on the scene. Ed and Pat’s Daughter, Dorothy, her Husband Evan, and their beautiful Daughter are well and doing just fine. New Daddy, Evan, was able to make it up from Fort Benning, GA. In time to share 8 1/2 Hours of Labor, every moment of it Blessed by the arrival of their Daughter. Please take a moment to share a prayer for this young Family, Dorothy, Evan and Maryn make Three.
