Abortion access

Hundreds upon hundreds of abortion rights supporters marched from Brooklyn to Manhattan in one of several mass demonstrations around the country.
The Reproductive Freedom and Equity Program would direct $50 million in state money to the Department of Health, which would then provide grants to abortion providers.
Speaker Adrienne Adams did not specify Tuesday where she wanted to see funding increased.
Gov. Kathy Hochul tweeted Monday evening that New York would welcome those patients “with open arms.”
“There was unfinished business when the Reproductive Health Act was passed in 2019,” Hochul said, taking a not-so-subtle swipe at her predecessor. “Now that I’m in charge, there will be no more delays..."
The reality for women seeking late abortions in New York has barely changed.
They chanted "My body, my choice," and "Pro-life—that's a lie, you don't care if women die" and held signs with pro-choice slogans.
"New York Law does not always permit me to do what is safest for my patients," says Dr. Stephen Chasen.
