East Farmingdale, NY- This week the Senate will vote on legislation that, if passed, would solidify abortion rights into federal law. The Senate vote is scheduled for Wednesday and expected to fail, however Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he’s holding the vote because he wants “members of both parties to go on record about where they stand” with regard to abortion rights.
