Our state legislators obviously have too much time on their hands and not enough real work to do---as in cut the time they are in Albany, cut their salaries and make them work real jobs.
 
Do you really have such disrespect for our Medical doctors that you think you superior genuises have to pass a law telling them what to do?   These are doctors, not politicians---they actually work, they actually do their jobs well. 
 

"I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Ludlow, 1824
 
James Madison, often called the Father of the Constitution told us his intentions. ""We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves and to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God"
 
(It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as they would be the sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please. Certainly no such universal power was meant to be given them. It [the Constitution] was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effect." --Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on a National Bank, 1791

From the Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
Dear Fellow New Yorker,
Did you know that dense breast tissue is one of the leading risk factors for breast cancer in women? Dense breast tissue is very common, but it can make it more difficult to find cancer on a mammogram. In addition, women with high breast density are more likely to develop breast cancer than women with low breast density.
To help improve breast cancer detection and prevention, Governor Cuomo signed legislation yesterday that will require mammography services to inform patients if dense breast tissue is found during an exam.
“Early detection can save lives and this new law will give women who may be at a higher risk for breast cancer the information they need to consult with their physician about follow-up screening and other preventive measures,” Governor Cuomo said.
This new law will ensure that more women are receiving this critical information, which could lead to earlier detection and save lives. Women should be aware and discuss with their doctor all potential risk factors, including, but not limited to, tissue density, age, family history of breast cancer, obesity, and alcohol consumption.
The new New York is one that works for you and your family.
Sincerely,
The Office of the Governor
