With lawmakers and judges throughout the country rolling back access to abortion, Governor Hochul will ensure that New York remains a national leader in protecting reproductive rights.
Throughout her career, Kathy has been a champion for reproductive rights. Today, her leadership is more important than ever, as states across the country — along with Donald Trump’s Supreme Court — continue pushing anti-abortion laws that will put tens of millions of people at risk.
As Governor, Kathy’s work has affirmed reproductive rights and cemented New York as a safe haven for all people seeking care. As part of these efforts, she has directed state agencies to coordinate a statewide public information campaign, including developing a Patient Bill of Rights to make New Yorkers aware of their rights and legal protections. Additionally, she directed the state to update existing regulations to make medication abortions more accessible during telehealth visits and urged Facebook to provide information on and take action to combat abortion misinformation online.
As she has throughout her career, Governor Hochul will continue fighting for reproductive rights and will work to ensure, without a doubt, that those seeking care in New York will be protected.
