last chance to press the NY Senate to pass the Reproductive Health Act this legislative year!
Just when we thought the door was closed on passing the Reproductive Health Act this year, Governor David Paterson called the Legislature back to Albany today!This special session is very likely our last chance to press the Senate to pass the Reproductive Health Act this legislative year! The Senate's first order of business will be to pass a budget, but this is also the perfect opportunity for the Senate to show real leadership, stand up for New Yorkers' pro-choice values, and make women's health a priority. We've waited three long years for action on this bill, and each year have seen legislators leave Albany without taking action. Now they're back, and we need to seize this opportunity and the women of this state are tired of waiting. Email your senator and ask them to seize this golden opportunity to show pro-choice New Yorkers that the Senate cares about the issues that matter most to the women and families of New York. Tell them to bring the Reproductive Health Act to the floor now!
