AOH New York State Board Re-affirms its Position on Abortion

Ancient Order of Hibernians New York State Board Position on Abortion

“All life is precious from Conception to Natural Death.”

 

This has always been our stance on all Life issues. We Respect Life and know that Life is a gift from God.

We pray, civilly protest and express this stance in our actions month after month, year after year and in support of Church teachings. We have never wavered or succumbed to political or socially accepted attitudes of the times.

Even when a culture of death seems to be accepted by many, we show love, and support Life in all stages.

Let it be known that, our position on Abortion (and all respect life issues) does not change or evolve.

We have consistently been steadfast.

The latest bill signed in New York does not change the stance we take on the subject. It never will.
