Equality Act about more than abortion

(Continued)

New York’s abortion law hasn’t been amended since before Roe v. Wade. Cuomo’s legislation merely brings the state in line with the established national law. The effect would be that if that Roe were overturned in the future, a woman’s freedom of choice would be preserved in New York.

We urge Sens. James Seward and John Bonacic to support the bill in its entirety. It would be a shame if the abortion question — on which people in good faith may disagree — should prevent the other needed protections for women to be enacted.
