News Release - Statement by Mayor Lovely A. Warren Urging Passage of New York Reproductive Health Act

City of Rochester 

News Release 

(Monday, Jan. 7, 2019) – I want to applaud Governor Cuomo for putting the Reproductive Health Act at the forefront of his 2019 legislative agenda and I urge the men and women of the New York legislature to pass this bill within the first 30 days of the new session. As Trump works to roll back women’s rights at the federal level, New York must take the lead in the fight to advance and protect the rights of the women at the state level. Rochester has a national reputation as the city from which both Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony waged their battles for equal rights and social justice, so I am proud to support legislation that carries these ideals into the 21st century.
