Family Planning Advocates of New York State and the health care providers and consumers we represent commend Gov. Cuomo for including women’s health care in his Top 10 policy issues for the coming year. We are looking forward to the Governor’s commitment to prioritizing women’s health care policy being reflected in his legislative agenda as part of his intention to continue New York State’s legacy as a leader in women’s health care policy. Gov. Cuomo’s leadership in the Capitol will ensure comprehensive reproductive health care access, including safe, legal abortion, for the women and families of the state. At the same time, passing such legislation as the Reproductive Health Act to guarantee a woman can make her own personal, private health care decisions, especially when her health is endangered, will demonstrate to the nation that women’s health care access should advance, not be rolled back.
