In May, Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) introduced the Governor’s 10-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 part of the Women’s Equality Act that contains abortion expansion. Last year, the Senate rightly passed nine individual bills benefitting women, but rejected the abortion expansion bill. We must urge our Senators to stay the course!
