“I strongly condemn today’s devastating Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V . Wade. This decision demonstrates one of the biggest roll backs on individual rights and liberties and flatly rejected 50 years of legal precedent protecting women’s rights to make their own reproductive health care decisions.
We must do everything in our power in our State Government to ensure that New York is a beacon for protecting reproductive rights, which includes safe access to abortion. I pray for our country as this decision will begin to reverberate throughout our states.
My words do not adequately describe the anguish and helplessness being felt today. But to all who are feeling this anguish now, and helplessness, I want you to know that I stand with you. I support you, and I will always be here to fight tirelessly for you.”
Candidate for New York State Senate District 51
