- Governor of New York
- United States of America
The abortion expansion bill is uncompromising in its terms and extremely sweeping in scope. The bill goes against the increasingly pro-life sentiment in this country, as evidenced by the most recent Marist poll (December 2012) which found that more than 8 in 10 Americans favor significant restrictions on abortion. It is an exception that will allow more third-trimester abortions in New York State, a policy which the public strongly disapproves.
This ignores the state’s legitimate interest in protecting the lives of fully formed children in the womb, and ignores the will of a majority of New Yorkers who oppose late-term abortion.
We, the undersigned, call on Governor Andrew Cuomo to eliminate the Abortion Expansion Bill from the Women's Equality Bill.
We strongly urge you to oppose this abortion expansion plan, in whatever form it may take. It is unnecessary, extreme and dangerous.
