June 28, 2022 – The unsettling ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade has made it all the more critical that existing protections in New York be ironclad for those who seek and provide reproductive health care. Passage of new state and local legislation strengthening New York’s protections for abortion and other reproductive health care services, like the ones signed by Governor Hochul earlier this month and the “Reproductive Health Care Facilities Access Act” passed yesterday and signed into law by Westchester County Executive George Latimer, are important measures that will enhance safe access to abortion, which remains legal in the state of New York. 

My office successfully prosecuted trespassers at a White Plains women’s clinic last fall, and we will continue to prosecute any individuals who interfere with patients’ access to reproductive health care in our jurisdiction in violation of the laws of our State and County.
