The Truth About The Reproductive Health Act

The New York Civil Liberties Union just released this video about the New York Reproductive Health and Privacy Protection Act. The Reproductive Health Act would strengthen current state laws regarding abortion and contraception access, as well as guarantee the right to have or refuse an abortion regardless of future Supreme Court rulings regarding Roe vs. Wade.

New Yorkers may have noticed a lot of misinformation being spread by anti-choice groups who want to see the legislation fail. The bill's opponents are working hard, so that means supporters have to give it their all too. The video debunks many of the common myths, so pass it along and help to get the truth out there!
