The Women's Bar Association of the State of New York ("WBASNY" ) strongly supports Governor Cuomo's call to enact into law the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act - two of WBASNY' s most important legislative priorities for 2019.
WBASNY has longstanding support for legislation such as the ones outlined on Monday that acknowledges and enshrines into law the dignity and equality of every person.
We applaud the Governor's efforts to work with the New York State Legislature to bring issues that are critical to women and children in our state to the forefront of the legislative agenda and to protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of our populace.
