back into the shadows

Alabama is pretty far away from our home on Long Island. But what's happening there right now? You'd better believe it impacts Long Islanders, New Yorkers, and everyone across America.

Alabama is set to effectively outlaw abortion in a blatant attack on women's health care. They're doing it to spur a challenge that, they hope, overturns Roe v. Wade.

Want to know how extreme this effort really is? The Alabama law doesn't even have provisions for cases of rape and incest, so you know exactly what its authors are after.

Their goal, they say: reduce the number of abortions. In practice? This won't stop abortions – just safe ones. It's actively putting lives in danger, and that's outrageous.

Driving women back into the shadows for medical care is wrong. Politicians across America should get out of the way – they have zero business attempting to legislate control over a woman's body.

This is Donald Trump and Lee Zeldin's America: extreme policies, extreme (and deadly) outcomes.

And it's why I'm running: because Long Island and Congress need leaders who will stand up for the rights of women – not try to take them away.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
