New York State's unconstitutional abortion law dates back to 1970 before Roe v. Wade, before women were allowed to get a credit card or run the New York Marathon.

For years, members of the New York Senate have played partisan politics with reproductive rights and women's health, never letting the bill come to the floor for a vote, never letting it out of committee.
Majority Leader Senator John Flanagan (Long Island) is the gatekeeper, he decides which bills get a vote, and which do not. He refuses to allow a vote on the Reproductive Health Act.
Enough is enough. The time is now. Demand a vote on the rha.
