Simon Sponsors Reproductive Health Services Act (A.6221)

Statement from Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon:


"With conservatives across the country limiting women's reproductive health rights it's even more important that we enact legislation here in New York State protecting a woman's right to choose as codified by Roe vs. Wade. I was honored to speak and vote in support of the Reproductive Health Services Act.

This bill is one of several passed in the past few weeks by the Assembly to protect women and families such as the paid family leave act and a comprehensive package of legislation to combat human trafficking. It was a privilege to have voted in support of these bills."
