Tell Governor Cuomo,
“The Reproductive Health Act is in Your Hands!”
The Reproductive Health Act is our best hope for strengthening New Yorkâ€™s protections for womenâ€™s health care and turning the anti-woman tide that is sweeping the country.
With the Governorâ€™s support, we have a real chance to pass it this year! Without it we donâ€™t.
But we must act quickly.

This week the national attack on women’s health has come to New York. The state’s Catholic Conference has descended on Albany in strong opposition to this crucial legislation. Anti-choice legislators have maneuvered to stall the bill in committee.
But they don’t speak for the vast majority of New Yorkers who want to secure and strengthen reproductive freedom.Â Three-quarters of allÂ New YorkersÂ and 70% of all Catholics support the passage of Â the Reproductive Health Act. It would explicitly recognize a womanâ€™s right to reproductive-health care, including abortion and contraception. It would also fix a troubling gap in current law that fails to protect a womanâ€™s access to care when her health is endangered later in pregnancy.
That’s why the governor needs to hear from you.
