I contacted Dr. Elizabeth Whelan on this in case she hadn't been apprised. She emailed me back rather quickly to let me know that she contacted the committee members this afternoon with a strong statement, and cced one of her staff to forward her comments. When I receive them I'll post them here. She asked to be kept up to date on the situation as well.
Dr. Whelan also said that they have the interest of the NY Post op ed page, but that they wouldn't run her piece until the NY Senate was seriously considering a ban rather than just the Assembly.
