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.”
ONEONTA – Family Planning of South Central New York applauds the state Legislature’s passage today of both the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, according to a press release.
Both bills were passed today by the state Assembly and Senate – on the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling – and signed into law today by Governor Cuomo.
