I urge you to reject the extreme abortion bill known as the Reproductive Health Act (S.438 Stewart-Cousins). This proposal is no simple update to New York's laws, as proponents claim. It is a radical bill that would allow non-physicians to perform abortions, lift all restrictions on late-term abortions, and could compel all medical facilities, including Catholic hospitals, to allow abortions.
Unfortunately, there are no meaningful regulations or restrictions on abortion in New York State. We already have the highest rate of abortion in the country. There is no need for this bill. It would prove extremely dangerous for viable fully-formed unborn infants, for women's health and for religious liberty rights.
I strongly urge you to oppose Senate bill 438. I am a young voter and this issue is dear to my heart. Please know I will be checking to see how you vote on this matter, and as life is the most basic human right, will not be voting for you ever again in my lifetime if you support this bill.
