Skelos No Go On Abortion Law

April 24, 2013
New York (WENY) - The leader of New York's State Senate says he will block any abortion proposal from the governor. Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos isn't budging in his opposition to Governor Cuomo's plan to strengthen abortion rights in New York. Cuomo said in his January State of the State speech that he supported a Democratic proposal to legalize later-term abortions. And Tuesday he added he wants to ensure those rights continue in New York if Roe VS. Wade were reversed. Cuomo has suggested the measures, but Skelos notes the Democrat still hasn't released a bill.
