The Reproductive Rights program of the New York Civil Liberties Union (RRP) is the only New York State-based legal organization that focuses on reproductive rights. RRP defines reproductive rights broadly to include not only abortion rights and access, but also birth control, reproductive and sexual health, equal treatment of pregnant and parenting women in employment and education, comprehensive and medically accurate sex and HIV/AIDS education, and patient privacy.
RRP is committed to preserving and expanding the rights of all New Yorkers, but especially the most vulnerable: low-income women, women of color and adolescents.
We further our goals through litigation and legal analysis, advocacy, outreach and education. To learn more please read our 2015 Reproductive Health and Legislative Agenda.
