Governor Cuomo is at it again! He is trying to expand abortion in New York.
As you may know, the state of New York has fewer restrictions on abortion than nearly every other state in the nation and almost double the national average of abortions. In fact, 1 in 10 abortions in the United States is performed in New York. But Governor Cuomo wants more.
We need your help to urge Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature to remove the abortion-expansion language from his budget plan once again.
The abortion-expansion measure will do nothing to help women. Combining unfettered access to abortion with the governor’s support for unlimited public funding of abortion does not help women – particularly those forced or coerced into abortion.
The abortion-expansion language would allow late-term abortions and would allow non-doctors to perform abortions in a state that already has one of the highest abortion rates. And the governor’s 2018-2019 budget proposed public funding for abortion with no cap on expenditures.
Cuomo is carrying the agenda for a minority group of pro-abortion radicals instead of fighting to advance the fundamental rights of women. If the governor were interested in addressing the real needs of women, his first stop would be New York City, where abortions outnumber live births. He might then realize that it is not access to abortion that women are lacking; it is support to carry their babies to term that women are lacking.
