"We do not have a NY state law that provides the protections of Roe v. Wade". The group is specifically targeting vulnerable Senate Republicans including Sens.

"Women's health issues deserve more than political stunts with stolen one-liners from 'The Apprentice, '" said Candice Giove, a spokesman for Senate Republicans, in a statement.
