Episode 1676: 5 Bills To Watch In The Final 5 Weeks Of The Legislative Session
05/09/2021

Thank you for joining this week’s edition of the Albany Update.

We’re down to the final five weeks of the legislative session and today we’ll tell you about five bills we’re watching in the last lap.

First, there was motion last week on the Public University Emergency Contraception Education Act. It has members of the pro-life community concerned.

There are also indicators that Planned Parenthood and their political allies in Albany are preparing to make a push for mandatory public sex ed before the end of session.

Then, there is an effort to raise the age of marriage in New York to eighteen, but leave the age of sexual consent at seventeen. This creates a conundrum that discourages marital monogamy.

And, while not likely to see passage anytime soon, we want to make you aware of a bill that would make it a felony to intentionally injure a pregnant woman.

Finally, last week there was a debate over assisted suicide legislation. We’ll tell you how it went and where you can watch it yourself.
