One of the most vocal proponents of abortion rights in the New York state Senate is Sen. Liz Krueger.

The chair of the Senate Finance Committee, the Manhattan Democrat sponsored the 2019 Reproductive Health Act. This year, she sponsors a bill to codify an equality amendment to the state’s constitution. The amendment would codify a platform of rights for New Yorkers from pregnancy termination to gender identity.

Krueger spoke with Capital Tonight’s Susan Arbetter about the bill and her desire to see first passage before the end of the session.
