Local Agency Applauds NY State’s Stand Against Federal Abortion Curbs

Local Agency Applauds

NY State’s Stand Against

Federal Abortion Curbs

ONEONTA — Oneonta’s Family Planning of South Central New York is applauding the Cuomo Administration’s withdrawal from the federal Title X family planning program because, for the time being, it prohibits federal funding from being used for abortion referrals or abortions themselves.

“We applaud Governor Cuomo and state public health officials for their decision to reject Title X funding as long as the coercive, unethical gag rule is in effect,” said Debra Marcus, the local agency’s CEO. “And we also urge the governor to release the $16 million designated by the state Legislature to help offset this loss of millions of federal grant dollars.”
