With the recent appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade and access to sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion are in jeopardy. And if Roe falls, New York’s abortion laws are so outdated that we won’t be adequately protected here unless we pass the Reproductive Health Act this legislative session. We’ve got work to do to make sure Staten Island lawmakers step up and support access to sexual and reproductive healthcare. Join Move Forward Staten Island for Rock n’ Roe, a community benefit concert to support both Move Forward Staten Island and Planned Parenthood of NYC’s Staten Island Health Center.
