Hillary teamed up with Governor Andrew Cuomo at Barnard on Monday. Cuomo is calling for the NY Assembly to promote the Reproductive Health Act.

 


Former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to call for the codification of abortion rights into New York state law and promote the Reproductive Health Act at a rally held at Barnard’s Diana Center on Monday morning.In past years, the issue of abortion rights has seen significant opposition by State Senate Republicans in New York, who lost majority control of the chamber in midterm elections in November. Currently, in-state abortion laws—written three years before the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case—prohibit abortions after 24 weeks unless necessary to save the woman’s life. Roe v. Wade, which has faced greater scrutiny by increasingly conservative federal courts, upholds a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy by abortion before the third trimester.Through the proposed RHA, abortion would be decriminalized and put into public health law—a step expected to occur during the legislative session starting this Wednesday. Cuomo also announced that he will be proposing a state constitutional amendment to enshrine rights granted by Roe v. Wade into the New York State Constitution.

The United States is making a mistake by moving in the opposite direction of Canada on cultural diversity, immigration and social harmony, former U.S. president Bill Clinton told a receptive audience in Montreal on Wednesday night.

“Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity and it has a very interesting immigration system,” he said at the Bell Centre, where he and his wife, former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, made their second stop on a paid speaking tour of North America.

The 13-stop tour, An Evening with the Clintons, began in Toronto on Tuesday.

“And yet it’s still Canada,” Clinton added. “And I just think that you can model the idea that you can become more diverse and still keep your culture and your values. It’s really very good for a modern economy.”

Canada has the capacity to embrace and influence the world in a positive way, he said.

This was a refreshing, honest, humorous evening with the Clintons. They had serious answers on the Bin Laden raid, North Korea, despots in general, Putin in particular, and climate change – among other topics. Lighter notes touched on their courtship and time at Yale.

2008 Women of the Year honoree Hillary Clinton spent much of midterms season campaigning for Democrats running for Congress, including Florida politician Donna Shalala and Chicago gubernatorial candidate J.B. Prtizker. So it’s really no wonder she surprised the crowd at Glamour‘s Women of the Year awards for an inspiring speech on the importance of women running for office.

Read the powerful message she delivered to the crowd, below:

“Congratulations to all of the Glamour Women of the Year being honored tonight—don’t they inspire us and give us hope about the future?

“This week, exactly two years ago, was a rough one. But, you know, my personal disappointment wasn’t so much about what happened, but how do we create even more opportunity for all the people in America. ‘An America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted,’ as I said afterward. That remains my mission today.
