Message From Most Rev. John Barres on NYS's "Reproductive Health Act"

February 13th, 2019

Most Rev. John O. Barres, Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, has published an appeal relating to the recently enacted "Reproductive Health Act" (also known as the "Abortion Expansion Act"). This legislation was signed into law by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo on January 22, 2019, the 46th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion throughout all 50 U.S. states. You can read Bishop Barres's message here, or view his recent discussion about this act hosted on the Catholic Faith Network's YouTube channel.
