Protect reproductive rights now
The Trump administration has put abortion access in its crosshairs, tried to rollback contraceptive coverage and waged an all-out war on women. New York must be a leader in fighting against this onslaught.
We have a unique opportunity to make sure women’s reproductive rights are front-and-center in Albany. This year’s state budget should include a Women’s Agenda that would make big strides toward reproductive freedom in New York.
Five provisions of a strong Women’s Agenda would advance access to reproductive health care, decriminalize abortion in New York State, increase access to contraception, reduce maternal mortality, improve comprehensive sex education and secure funding for reproductive health care.
TAKE ACTION: The budget will be hammered out in the next few days. Tell state leaders they can’t trade away women’s rights at the negotiating table.
