Make NY a Beacon for Abortion and Pregnancy-Related Health Care

Act Now

With the Supreme Court poised to rescind the critical protections of Roe v. Wade, nearly half of U.S. states will move to ban abortion entirely. New York must take action and become an access state for all people seeking abortion care.

The Reproductive Health Act codifies Roe v. Wade in state law, recognizing abortion — and the whole range of reproductive care — as a fundamental right. Yet when Roe falls, New York must go further to break down the barriers to abortion that still exist in our state and ensure meaningful access for anyone who needs it.

TAKE ACTION: Tell lawmakers to break down barriers to abortion in NY.

With Roe v. Wade in danger in front of the Supreme Court, and states already obliterating abortion rights and access to care, it is critical that New York take a stand now to protect and expand access to abortion in our state.

The passage of the Reproductive Health Act played a critical role in bringing New York’s abortion law into the 21st Century, but major barriers to care remain. New York must act urgently to ensure that our state is an access state for all those seeking abortion, regardless of geography, income, or documentation status:

The time is now for New York to lead the nation in the face of the real threats to reproductive health care and gender justice. Supporting initiatives that remove barriers to care should be a top priority as we work to make New York an access state for people seeking abortion.
