Ashby Opposes Abortion Expansion Legislation

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I,Ref-Castleton)

“This is a shameful and sad day in New York, as the Majority forces upon New Yorkers the expansion of abortion. I vehemently oppose this legislation, which allows non-physicians to perform abortions and for them to be performed late into the third trimester. New York already has one of the highest rates of abortions in the country. It is evident that some Majority members would rather stand on platitudes of their progressive agenda than for the well-being of its citizens, from women to the innocent lives of the unborn.”
