From Governor Kathy Hochul:
“Today, the Supreme Court took away the right of millions of Americans to make decisions about their own bodies. This decision is a grave injustice. I want everyone to know that abortion remains safe, accessible, and legal in New York. Just last month, in anticipation of this decision, I made an historic $35 million investment to support our state’s network of abortion providers. Last week, thanks to the partnership of Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins and Speaker Heastie, I signed a landmark, nation-leading package of legislation that further protects the rights of patients and empowers reproductive healthcare providers. The right to reproductive healthcare is a fundamental human right. History shows us that when abortion is banned, abortion becomes unsafe for women. Low-income individuals and people of color will be harmed the most. New York has always been a beacon for those yearning to be free. Our state will always be a safe harbor for those seeking access to abortion care. To anyone who is working to deny abortion access, our message is clear: not here, not now, not ever.”
From Democrat Congressional Candidate Max Della Pia
The Supreme Court has flagrantly disregarded precedent. Trigger legislation will ultimately deny the right to choose for 38 million women in 26 states! In Justice Thomas’s concurring opinion he stated “we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents including Griswold, Lawrence, & Obergefell.”
That said, Thomas has made it clear the next move is to come after the right to access and use contraceptives without restriction, have same-sex relationships, and marry who we choose.
We must mobilize and vote in massive numbers to codify all of these rulings into law. This is what is on the table August 23rd. Make your voices heard!
>From Andrew Guiliani:
“As a pro-life New Yorker, I celebrate the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe vs Wade. It’s a victory for states’ rights but more importantly, the sanctity of life. This protection for our most vulnerable New Yorkers is the enduring legacy of President Donald J. Trump.”
From Republican Rob Astorino:
“For the governor to run down the street with her hair on fire, it is not going to really change things in New York State, they already put this (abortion) into law.” As for Republican Andrew Guliaini, he says: “As a pro-life New Yorker, I celebrate the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe vs Wade. It’s a victory for states’ rights but more importantly, the sanctity of life. This protection for our most vulnerable New Yorkers is the enduring legacy of President Donald J. Trump.”
From Harry Wilson:
(On) Roe v Wade: I don’t have a social agenda. I’m focused on turning around New York. Crime is out of control, families are fleeing because they can’t afford to be in New York. I spent years turning around broken companies. I have a turnaround plan for New York. We’ll cut taxes 20 percent, saving the average family, $3000. I have a crime plan to make us safer, support the police and keep criminals in jail. That’s what I’m focused on.
From Lee Zeldin:
Today is a victory for life, for family, for the constitution, and for federalism. When my daughters, Mikayla and Arianna, were born 14.5 weeks early, I had the opportunity to witness life in the second trimester and it was absolutely beautiful. In a state that has legalized late term partial birth abortion and non-doctors performing abortion, in a state that refuses to advance informed consent and parental consent, and where not enough is being done to promote adoption and support mothers, today is yet another reminder that New York clearly needs to do a much better job to promote, respect and defend life.”
