The first legislation in the 2017 NYS Assembly session has passed, and guess what? Joe Errigo voted against women’s right to choose and women’s ability to obtain contraceptives just when abortions have decreased. Really, Joe?
Assembly Bill A1748 updates current law and ensures continued protection of a woman’s right to choose. Assembly Bill A1378 requires commercial group health insurance policies to cover all FDA-approved contraceptive drugs, devices and products when prescribed by a health care provider.
Like most Republicans, Joe Errigo wants to take the women of New York back to 1950.
