With the passage of SB8 in Texas banning abortion after 6 weeks and other states across the nation preparing to follow suit, New York should be a haven for all people seeking abortion care.

By removing abortion from the state criminal code, the 2019 Reproductive Health Act was a critical first step. Now we must do more to advance access to care.
