Dear Pastors and Prayer Warriors,
New York Senate bill S660 (aka Boss Bill) was signed into law by Governor Cuomo on Friday, November 8. The bill makes it illegal for pro-life organizations to hire and manage employees based on pro-life beliefs.
Obeying this law would force CompassCare to violate its mission and beliefs. Therefore, CompassCare cannot in good conscience obey. We sue not because we want to but because it is needed to ensure pro-life Christians can continue expressing their convictions publicly and peaceably.
This Sunday would you consider asking God’s people to pray for CompassCare’s staff and legal team. Pray for 1) the enemy’s plans to be frustrated; 2) God’s favor, both in the legal court and the court of public opinion; 3) His wisdom, to know what to say, what to do, and the courage to do it; 4) success, so that CompassCare and other NY pro-life, pro-family organizations can continue working without unjust interference.
