State Senate Dems Pass Reproductive Health Act

Originally published in Yonkers Times

State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, who represents Pelham, said: “This is a historic day not only for women, but also for New York State. There is no coincidence that 2018 was the year of the woman, where we saw a record number of women running for and elected to office. There is no coincidence that our state reclaimed its democratic majority with the most women elected ever in the Legislature. There is no coincidence that today – by passing the Reproductive Health Act, Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, and the Boss Bill – we are setting in stone that we believe in women, their rights and abilities to make essential decisions for their bodies and their families.
