Let’s Be Pro-Women and Pro-Life!
Please continue to urge your New York State Assembly representative to pass the nine individual bills to benefit women that were passed by the Senate in June. The Senate rightly refused to vote on the tenth bill of the “Women’s Equality Agenda,” the bill to expand abortion in our state.
In May Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D – Yonkers) introduced the Governor’s ten-point “Women’s Equality Act” (S.7540) which includes a dangerous abortion expansion component. Just a few weeks ago the Senate Health Committee defeated a stand-alone abortion expansion bill (S.438), but now we must let our Senate representatives know that New Yorkers don’t want or need abortion expansion — in whatever form it appears. Take action now to urge your State Senator to reject the Women’s Equality Act that contains abortion expansion. Last year, the Senate rightly passed nine individual bills benefiting women, but rejected the abortion expansion bill. We must urge our Senators to stay the course!
