NYS Senate Candidate Robert Kesten. New York’s 40th Senate District Democrat Robert Kesten is vying to represent the residents of the towns of Beekman, Pawling and the village of Pawling in Dutchess County, the towns of Carmel, Patterson and Southeast, and the village of Brewster in Putnam County, and the city of Peekskill, the towns of Cortlandt, Lewisboro, Mount Pleasant, New Castle, North Salem, Pound Ridge, Somers and Yorktown, the town/village of Mount Kisco, and the villages of Briarcliff Manor, Buchanan, Croton-on-Hudson, Pleasantville and Sleepy Hollow in Westchester County.

DUTCHESS, PUTNAM, and WESTCHESTER COUNTIES — May 22, 2018 —  New York’s laws regarding women’s reproductive rights and contraception are being held hostage by a reactionary Republican controlled State Senate.  Some of these legislators who swear to uphold the Constitution are quick to use their personal religious beliefs for holding women back.  Now the federal government seeks to deprive women of access to health clinics by undermining Title X legislation, making New York’s archaic laws more dangerous.

Women cannot be equals in our society; not in business, politics, or even in the home, if they do not have control over their own bodies.  We can talk about equal pay, we can talk about equal opportunity, but if you cannot control your reproductive rights, you are not equal.

As long as Trump’s policies push Washington to limit women’s rights, and as long as New York’s Trump-like State Senate Republicans hold on to the levers of power, women will remain second class citizens.  The New York State Assembly has passed legislation on reproductive health and contraception.  The Senate needs to pass this legislation now!

We can make a change this November and make every American equal.  The DC Gag-rule is not OK in Washington or New York.  It’s time we put people first.

  1. Robert Kesten talks about “Trump’s policies push Washington to limit women’s rights,” but provides no substantial evidence. In fact he makes several outrageous claims, without substantiating them with evidence. The fact of the matter is that women are citizens just as anyone else is, and there hasn’t been any evidence to refute that. When it comes down to it there is no proof or evidence that Kesten provides in order to support his claims. There is no agenda provided by the “Trump-like state senate” that suggests they are outright anti-women-rights. Additionally his whole argument rides on the false claim that women in the United States are not equal to men. The next time Robert Kesten writes anything, he should try substantiating his claims with evidence from credible sources and make claims that are not false.
