As we gear up for the new legislative session, the BPCLC welcomes new pro-choice members to join the caucus and push for legislation that furthers women’s reproductive health. We are inspired by the fact that women comprised a critical voting bloc in this year’s election. Abortion and access to contraceptives were key issues for female voters in races at every level.
However, a record number of states continued to chip away at abortion rights in 2012 -- so we must lead on reproductive health here in New York State.
We'll kick off this year's efforts early: with a day of action in the first working week of the session!
Monday, January 14, 2013 Day of Action: Family Planning Advocates, Planned Parenthood of New York City, and hundreds of women's health advocates will gather in Albany for their annual Day of Action.
