FCLNY's Summer 2023 Community Encounters

FCLNY at World Youth Day U.S. (New York)

FCLNY had the opportunity to participate in NY's World Youth Day, this summer. We had meaningful conversations with individuals of all ages and backgrounds about important topics including pro-life feminism, Medical Aid in Dying, and how to support and grow the pro-life movement. We are grateful for the opportunity to connect with our community and engage in discussions that promote life and dignity for all.

FCLNY'S Buffalo Brunch in the Park

Whole-Life Feminism and the Consistent Life Ethic, Moving Forward and Growing

Our Buffalo Brunch was filled with discussion about what it means to be a whole-life feminist, how we uphold the consistent life ethic, ways to get involved, and why the fight or life is so essential in New York, especially with the upcoming proposed (Anti) Equal Rights Amendment to the New York State Constitution, up for referendum vote in November, 2024. Thank you to all who attended and joined the conversation!

FCLNY at SUNY Brockport

FCLNY recently had the opportunity to connect with college students at SUNY Brockport. During the event, we passed out valuable resources, made important connections, and participated in meaningful conversations with students, especially with those who hold opposing viewpoints.

It was thrilling to engage with the next generation of leaders and we look forward to continuing to empower and educate them on their journey.

FCLNY's Pro-Woman, Pro-Life Youth Presentations!

FCLNY recently interfaced with young students on pro-life feminism and the consistent life ethic! Discussions included the impacts of NY abortion policy and how students can be pro-life in their daily relationships and interactions.

We are impacting younger generations and gathering volunteers for a myriad of opportunities!

FCLNY Grassroots Campaigns

Listen to our pro-life feminist message on iHeart Radio!

"New York's abortion rate is twice the national average. Contrary to pro-choice messaging: Abortion is not health care or empowering. Studies show abortion increases women's risk of depression and anxiety. Check out Feminists Choosing Life of New York at FCLNY.ORG."

We are so happy to see our new FCLNY billboard up in Buffalo!

Civilizations have been killing human beings, especially the weak and the vulnerable, since the beginning of time… killing is not progressive.

FCLNY's Whole-Life Petitions!

Every voice matters! It is crucial that we each do what we can. Every signature counts!

Petition to Stop the Execution of Taylor Rene Parker

The consistent life ethic is not for the faint hearted. It is often easier to support the ripping away of the humanity of our fellow brothers and sisters who have committed the most heinous crimes- as it is- for the smallest among us, including the tiniest of humans at conception.

The most basic human right is the right to live free from violent destruction- and the essence on which the pro-life movement is built.

Please sign the petition today: calling to stop the execution of Taylor Rene Parker.

Pledge To Support Independent Pharmacies

We are working to gather THOUSANDS of signatures in support of independent pharmacies that don't sell abortion pills. 

Chemical abortions (abortion pills) kill human beings and increase health risks for women. Retail pharmaceutical sale of abortion pills is deadly for unborn children and harmful for women. 

Help us reach our goal and stand up to the abortion pill by signing and sharing our petition with your family and friends!
