Opposition to new abortion law requested by City resident and City Manager
Written by Alex Feig on January 30, 2019
Batavia resident calls on community members to make their voices heard about abortion at the next City Council meeting.
Chris Connelly appeared before City Council Monday evening asking that they stand up against New York State’s new expansive abortion law entitled the “Reproductive Health Act”.
Connelly who is a former Marine, now confined to a wheelchair, declared it was his God-given responsibility to speak out against the evil that is abortion according to his beliefs.
He also believes council could close Planned Parenthood and designate Batavia as a Sanctuary City for the unborn.
After coming to a consensus in support of the proposal, Council directed the City Manager to pen a letter stating council’s opposition to the new law and added the topic to the agenda for February.
Before drafting the letter, City Manager Martin Moore is awaiting public feedback and Connelly is requesting letters of support be sent to him by Sunday.
