NY Senators Standing Firm Against Abortion Bill

What about meAlbany, June 14 — As we enter the final days of the legislative session, NY senators are still standing firm against Gov. Cuomo’s abortion bill.

Facing opposition, Cuomo has agreed to add additional language to try to make the abortion plank more acceptable, but a spokeswoman for Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos said in a statement that  “nothing has changed” when it comes to the conference’s position on the abortion provision in the 10-point Women’s Equality Act (WEA).

Meanwhile, women’s groups are taking aim at Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) and blaming him for holding up the measure.
