In less than a month, New York State legislators will end the 2017 legislative session and go on summer vacation. We can’t let them do that without bringing the Reproductive Health Act (HRA) and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA) to the floor for a vote. These two bills will enhance and secure access to abortion and contraception in New York. Please sign the petition to urge them to pass these bills!
The Trump administration is clearly set on denying women access to and coverage for reproductive health care, from dismantling the Affordable Care Act to appointing anti-choice Supreme Court justices who could undermine the protections of Roe v. Wade.
It has never been more critical to protect our rights at the state level!
New Yorkers know this routine from our state legislators all too well — our pro-choice friends in the Assembly have proved themselves to be true allies to women, and passed the RHA and CCCA earlier this year. It’s time for the New York State Senate to step up and safeguard New Yorkers’ access to abortion and contraception from the threats at the federal level.
