Rally Builds on the Governor's Actions to Require Health Insurers to Cover Emergency Contraception, Over the Counter and 12 Months of Contraception Without Cost-Sharing
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo was joined today by leaders from Dutchess and Ulster counties at a rally in Poughkeepsie to fight to protect women's reproductive rights. State and local leaders called on the Senate to return to Albany to codify Roe v. Wade into New York State Law. The rally follows the federal government's decision Monday night to nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Governor vowed to take action to defend New York's progressive values against the extreme conservative agenda of the Trump Administration, including the fight to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade into state law. New actions were also announced by the Governor on Monday to protect reproductive rights in anticipation of this Supreme Court Justice nomination.
