Join EMC at Preliminary Injunction Hearing - now Wednesday, June 15 (updated 6/1/11), 2:30 p.m., U.S. Court House, Courtroom 11-D, 500 Pearl Street, NYC; Open to Public
Plan to attend and give support at this Preliminary Hearing between the two Plaintiffs’ attorneys, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) and the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) against the City of New York. This follows the passage of the new City Council law that brazenly attacks Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs).
New York City Council member Dan Halloran rallied local residents in Manhattan and Queens to help fight against passage of the bill, formerly known as 371A. But despite these efforts and many other pro-life and legal protests, Mayor Mike Bloomberg signed into law the Pregnancy Services Center Law, now Local Law 12 of 2011, on March 16th. Chris Slattery tells us that the Mayor admitted to him and Attorney Tiffany Barrons from the American Center for Law and Justice at the signing ceremony that he did not know if the new law was constitutional (!).
EMC Needs our Financial Support to Help Women!
“EMC is in our 26th year of operation,” says Chris Slattery. We've counseled over 110,000 women and saved 40,000 lives. NYC is trying to stop the vital ULTRASOUND program in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.”
The Msgr. Francis J. Dillon Knights of Columbus Council #5872 helped raise $6,000 in funds on May 19th towards the purchase of ULTRASOUND equipment costing $20,500. EMC is seeking matching funds from the K of C’s Supreme Council. Your local Knights Council’s contribution would be a big help in this effort!! You can donate online right now at www.emcfrontline.org/ or email Chris at email@example.com; or call 914-224-5773.
“Expectant Mother Care-EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers provide free counseling and ULTRASOUND imaging to expectant mothers who are deciding whether to abort their child so they can make a fully informed decision. Last year EMC provided 4000 Ultrasounds. Between 2400 and 2500 mothers chose life in NYC where 87,000 babies were slaughtered by abortion in the last reported year (2009). By providing ULTRASOUND imaging, the EMC Centers have prevented countless abortions.”
GOD BLESS ALL WHO HELP OFFER WOMEN THE CHOICE OF LIFE!
