Stefanik displays hypocrisy on Cuomo
It’s heartwarming to see that our state Rep. Elise Stefanik is asking for Gov. Cuomo’s resignation for being accused of sexual harassment.
I assume Elise considers herself a woman and therefore takes this as a serious offense to women everywhere.
What is puzzling to me is why she worships at the feet of the sexual harasser in chief Donald grab ‘em by Trump.
If Cuomo is found out to be guilty of this charge, hopefully an audio videotape will surface of his deeds so that he could become the next president of the United States.
Forum to address hospital merger plan
Were you aware that almost every hospital in the Capital District is a Catholic hospital, subject to religious policies and restrictions?
And now there is a plan for St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany to merge with Ellis Hospital in Schenectady, including its birthing center at Bellevue Woman’s Center.
In a life-or-death situation for a pregnant mother, the decision as to whose life to save is up to the “Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Services” and not the mother.
Also at stake if this merger goes through is the fate of reproductive rights in general, including contraception methods, tubal ligation and vasectomy, LGBTQ care, and end-of-life decisions.
To express your concern over this proposed merger, please join a virtual community forum on Thursday, March 4, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. by registering at www.schdy.org and going to the bottom of the page to sign up.
