New York Families Protects Human Life

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27, ESV)
“Then the Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is Abel your brother?’ He said, ‘I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?’. And the Lord said, ‘What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground.’” (Genesis 4:9-10, ESV)

The human right to life is a fundamental principle. Without it, the entire American experiment would fall apart. The signers of the Declaration of Independence bravely pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to the proposition that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

However, the right to life does not find its origins within the Declaration of Independence; rather, the right to life originates from the Bible, and specifically from the Sixth Commandment—“Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). The Bible teaches that all human beings are made in the image of God, and that human life, like God’s image, is sacred. Accordingly, New York Families affirms the sanctity of innocent human life, embracing the Bible’s teaching that all human life has inherent value and worth.

New York Families believes that one day, New York law will protect every innocent human life from conception until natural death. We will continue our life-affirming educational endeavors until that vision becomes a reality.
