Throughout our history, long journeys have always begun with short but significant steps. Yesterday the Senate Democrats continued the fight for choice, standing with their partners, NARAL ProChoice NY to put an end to the war on women and preserve their right to safe, legal, and affordable health services.
From State Houses to the House of Representatives, an attack has been launched to undermine women’s access to both basic and life-saving health care services.
Senate Democrats stood together to support the Reproductive Health Act – New York’s answer to anti-choice attacks on women’s rights like the Stupak Amendment, the de-funding of Planned Parenthood, or the stripping of private insurance coverage for abortion under the guise of Federal Healthcare Reform.
Yesterday, Senate Democrats said “no” to injustice. And we won’t stop there.
Senate Democrats will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the mothers, wives, daughters, and friends of the pro-choice community in the continuing struggle to protect the reproductive rights of millions of women.
Let’s not allow these essential human rights to be slashed, stripped, or scaled back. Stay tuned for updates on our progress.
