Reproductive rights at risk with new Supreme Court

Texas Abortion Ban Goes Into Effect

Texas Senate Bill #SB8 will go into effect on September 1st, ending access to abortion after six weeks of pregnancy and creating a hostile legal environment that would allow anyone to sue abortion providers and “aiders and abetters” in civil court.  Deceptively dubbed “the heartbeat bill,” it will basically end access to abortion for Texas women and set a dangerous course for the rest of the country. Although we are currently protected in New York, we must take action to preserve abortion access for women across the U.S.  The Texas law sets a dangerous precedent.

The Reproductive Health Act protects New Yorkers’ rights

The replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with ultra-conservative Amy Coney Barrett puts Americans’ reproductive rights in great peril. Roe v. Wade is at risk of being overturned, and that means women in 24 states and three territories would likely be prohibited from having an abortion. Fortunately, New York is one of seven states with laws already on the books to protect abortion access.

The Reproductive Health Act ensures women in New York will have access to abortion regardless of what happens to Roe v. Wade. We are proud to have fought for this legislation — access to reproductive healthcare is an essential pillar of the comprehensive healthcare we deserve. And we’ll continue to work to keep New York State a beacon for meeting women’s reproductive healthcare needs with compassion and urgency. Get the facts about New York’s Reproductive Health Act:

We must continue to act for reproductive justice.

Reproductive justice provides an inclusive framework that goes beyond abortion rights and addresses the disparities in healthcare quality and access that women of color face. Reproductive justice is to the right to have or not have children and the right to parent children in safe and sustainable communities.

Sex-Ed

Sex-ed can be a powerful tool to teach students not only about sex, but also healthy relationship skills and decision making. Did you know sex-ed is not a requirement in New York public schools?

Contraceptive Coverage Act

Know your rights. The Contraceptive Coverage Act makes sure that you are able to access your preferred method of birth control without a copay.
