New Session and Jan. 14 Day of Action

As we gear up for the new legislative session, the BPCLC welcomes new pro-choice members to join the caucus and push for legislation that furthers women’s reproductive health. We are inspired by the fact that women comprised a critical voting bloc in this year’s election. Abortion and access to contraceptives were key issues for female voters in races at every level.

However, a record number of states continued to chip away at abortion rights in 2012 -- so we must lead on reproductive health here in New York State.

We'll kick off this year's efforts early: with a day of action in the first working week of the session!

Monday, January 14, 2013 Day of Action Family Planning Advocates, Planned Parenthood of New York City, and hundreds of women's health advocates will gather in Albany for their annual Day of Action.
