NYGOP Chair Ed Cox Responds to State Democrats’ Hysterics
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Laska
ALBANY, NY… New York Republican Chairman Ed Cox today released the following statement in response to the Democratic State Committee:
“Mr. Capel’s hysterics notwithstanding, the truly extreme position is the one taken by Governor Cuomo in his State of the State address, where he called for passage of the so-called “Reproductive Health Act,” which would expand late-term abortions in New York, even up to the day of a baby’s birth.
“This extreme and unnecessary legislation does nothing to protect a woman’s right to choose. However, its provision allowing non-doctors to perform abortions will put the health and safety of tens of thousands of women at risk. Is that what the New York Democratic Party really wants?
“The New York Democratic Party has become the Party of extremists who want to open the door to horrors such as those perpetrated by Pennsylvania’s Dr. Gosnell who killed innocent babies by severing their spinal cords after they had already taken their first breaths. Will Mr. Capel attempt to justify that too?
“For the record, Ted Cruz is one of only three sitting Hispanic U.S. Senators. He is an example for millions of Latinos as they chase the American Dream. By attacking his life story, the New York Democratic Party has shown its true anti-Latino colors.”
