The Reproductive Health Act signed into law by Governor Cuomo in January 2019 decriminalizes abortion in New York State, however moves it into the health code, continuing to regulate abortion so not all pregnant people can access it. Abortion is the only medical procedure that is restricted or regulated for political reasons as opposed to health reasons.
NWL demands the repeal of all abortion laws along with free access to reproductive health care and all forms of birth control including abortion. We will not accept reform, only repeal will free us all.
Join us outside of Governor Cuomo's NYC office where we will share our People's Order to Demand The Repeal of All Abortion Laws. Join us to sign our People’s Order and share your testimony about why we need free abortion, birth control, and reproductive health care on demand.
