Report: Access to Reproductive Health Care in New York State Jails


Sparked by cases where women were denied access to reproductive health care while incarcerated, the NYCLU launched an investigation of policies for provision of health care specific to female inmates in county jails. We found that although women incarcerated in New York State are legally entitled to reproductive health care, few county jails have policies ensuring comprehensive access to such care.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
