H 627 is a joint resolution in response to the passage of the “Reproductive Health Act” by the New York State Assembly.
The resolution claims the RHA:
[…]is an extreme abortion-on-demand policy that establishes an unfettered right to abortion and goes beyond the protections guaranteed by Roe v. Wade.
The resolution declares the following:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly stands in mourning due to the countless lives that will be lost as a result of New York’s Reproductive Health Act.
SECTION 2. The General Assembly will continue to educate the public about the developing unborn child and advocate for protective pro-life laws.
SECTION 3. The General Assembly stands in solidarity with all who advocate for the effective and legal protection of unborn children and their mothers in this country.
The resolution is in response to the state of New York enacting the “Reproductive Health Act,” which removed abortion from the state’s criminal code and codified Roe v. Wade into New York State law.
4/8/19 – Introduced.
