REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

Brad is a staunch defender of choice. He’s extremely concerned that more than 40 years after Roe v. Wade, women’s reproductive rights remain under attack not only from the far right but also from the Republican establishment. Brad will fight to defend women’s rights to make their own health care decisions by ensuring full access to safe abortions, contraception and reproductive health care.

SUPPORTS passage of the Reproductive Health Act, to codify the Roe v. Wade decision into state law, and to repeal unconstitutional provisions of New York's laws that criminalize abortion.

SUPPORTS continued state Medicaid funding for reproductive health and fight to ensure that private insurance plans cover abortion as a basic component of women’s health care.

SUPPORTS funding for school districts and community-based organizations to provide comprehensive, medically-accurate and age-appropriate sex education programs for young people.
