Governor Cuomo To Senate Republicans: Codify Roe v. Wade into New York law

According to a new Quinnipiac poll released this morning, 73% of New Yorkers overwhelmingly support the reproductive health rights afforded by Roe v. Wade.

The poll is damning proof of what we already know: by refusing to codify Roe v. Wade into New York law, Republican State Senators are acting against the will of their constituents. The Senate Republicans have drunk the Trump Kool-Aid and are cowering to the conservatives in Washington and the conservative party here at home instead of acting in the interest of the people they represent.

Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins announced that all 31 of her members are willing to return to Albany as soon as possible to vote to support codifying Roe v. Wade into law -- New York only needs 1 more vote to make it a reality.

With a woman's reproductive health rights hanging in the balance, New Yorkers across the state overwhelmingly support Roe v. Wade, so I ask Senate Republicans: what are you afraid of? Whose interests are you representing?
