Maybe some other democrats will demonstrate some focus?? Maybe.


I have been pro-choice even longer than I have been a registered Democrat. I attended my first pro-choice rally in 1989 when I was still in high school. I was a member of Barnard Columbia Students for Choice in college and volunteered as a clinic escort for Planned Parenthood.

I am still pro-choice — but listening to Gov. Kathy Hochul constantly campaign on abortion is just one more reason I am voting for Rep. Lee Zeldin.

Abortion access was enshrined in New York state law in 2019, and it is not going to change. The 2018 “blue wave” in Albany gave Democratic legislators a supermajority, and they used it to pass bills codifying Roe v. Wade. In other words, when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, nothing changed in New York. Women throughout the state still have access to safe and legal abortions.

So every time Hochul talks about abortion, it just reminds me that she is not talking about the most pressing issue in our state: rising crime. Or how many New Yorkers are leaving our state to move to places with lower taxes and safer streets. Or the state’s devastating education results revealed in National Assessment of Educational Progress scores — some of the worst in the country. And she is definitely not telling us how she will make our city safer, more affordable and a place people want to keep living in.

Fake news.

Or perhaps there is only one reputable source of news for you: CNN.
