Victory: City Council Passes Clinic Access Bill!!

On this gloomy day, I thought I would give you some good news to cheer you up.

From Planned Parenthood NYC:

Great News! Yesterday, the New York City Council passed Introduction 826-A, legislation to protect women's access to reproductive health care facilities. As health care providers and advocates, we were proud to stand with Speaker Quinn and the New York City Council in support of this bill.

Intoduction 826-A (aka "the Clinic Access Bill") strengthens current law to better safeguard women who are faced with harassment and other hostile acts as they enter and exit local reproductive health care centers.

To learn more about why the Clinic Access Bill is so important to PPNYC read this opinion piece by Haydee Morales, Vice President of Education and Training at Planned Parenthood of New York City.

Keep up the good fight in 2009!
