NY Citizens Prepared To Challenge Planned Parenthood Through New Personhood Organization

NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Personhood New York has become an official organization and state affiliate to Personhood USA vowing to protect human life at all stages of development from the moment of conception until natural death. The new organization seeks to challenge Planned Parenthood at its national headquarters in New York City, educate the public on the personhood movement, motivate political action, and establish legislation throughout the state.

Currently, 41% of pregnancies in New York City end in abortion, which is legal in New York until the 24 th week of pregnancy. State legislators most recently shut down the proposed Women's Equality Act as it attempted to make abortion even more accessible than it already is. Personhood New York is dedicated to the cause of fighting to protect the unborn and to bring an end to abortion in the state.

Josh Craddock, Personhood NY spokesperson and board member, commented: "Today, New York City is the abortion capital of the world. Personhood NY is jumping in where the battle is fiercest to hit the abortion industry where it hurts. By promoting the right to life for all human beings in our state, we intend to drive out Planned Parenthood's abortion chop-shops."

People and groups from all faiths and cultures are welcome to join and help build support for the efforts in New York. Official endorsements for Personhood NY have been received from Ayesha Kreutz, President of The Frederick Douglass Foundation of NY, Dan Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Chris Slattery, Founder and President of Expectant Mother Care/Frontline Pregnancy Centers.

The organized group of New York residents contacted Personhood USA to get involved in educating its state and rallying others to stand with them to protect each person regardless of the stage of development, age, race, sex, religion, or method of conception. Personhood USA is a Christ-centered, biblically-directed organization dedicated to the non-violent advancement of the recognition and protection of the God-given, unalienable right to life of all innocent human beings as legal persons at every stage of their biological development. It will be guiding Personhood NY in its statewide efforts. Personhood USA's State Partnership Program includes additional chapters in Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and Wisconsin.
