To Gov. Cuomo:
We, the undersigned, stand in firm opposition to the recently-enacted “Reproductive Health Act” which expands abortion in New York State. This new law:
• Legalized late-term abortions of fully-formed infants in the womb;
• Expanded the pool of practitioners who can perform abortions;
• Removed legal protections for babies who survive abortion; and
• Decriminalized acts of violence that intentionally target an unborn child.
This act endangers the health of women and treats unborn children as disposable objects. It does not represent the direction in which our state should be headed. We, the undersigned, call upon you and the New York State Legislature to repeal this law in its entirety.
