As states across the country ban and eliminate access to abortion, we in New York are working to make sure all people can get the care they need. Prohibiting abortion does not remove the need for abortion. Instead, it delays care or makes abortion impossible to access — especially for those who are struggling to make ends meet. Reproductive health care ensures that people can plan their futures and participate equally in our society. This includes birth control and abortion, as well as prenatal and postpartum care. Inside, you will find information on your abortion rights under New York law, and resources for those seeking care.
