Cuomo Panders to Anti-Life Advocates: Put Abortion Rights in NY Constitution

Via Democrat & Chronicle (HT Empire Report):

Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to amend the state constitution to protect abortion rights in New York if a conservative Supreme Court curtails them nationally.

Cuomo on Monday proposed installing Roe v. Wade rights into the state constitution, a measure intended to fortify a woman’s ability to obtain an abortion in New York.

The Democratic governor unveiled his proposal at a rally near the state Capitol hosted by Family Planning Advocates, the lobbying arm of Planned Parenthood in New York.

His remarks came a day before President Donald Trump is scheduled to unveil his pick for a vacant seat on the Supreme Court, a decision pro-choice groups fear could precede the court re-considering Roe v. Wade.

“As they threaten this nation with a potential Supreme Court nomination that will reverse Roe v. Wade, I want them to know today: If that’s what they do, we’re going to protect Roe v. Wade in the state of New York,” Cuomo said.
