A crucial bill is headed to Gov. Hochul’s desk! S 1066B has passed through committees with strong support, but there’s still work to be done. Take action today and urge Gov. Hochul to support abortion rights nationwide.
S 1066B will protect doctors providing medication abortion, including through telehealth, to out-of-state patients from criminal prosecution. As Christian nationalists continue to wage a war against abortion and bodily autonomy, women and other pregnant individuals are being forced to seek aid from states where dogma doesn’t have a firm grip on lawmakers. Unfortunately, this has led to physicians who provide care for these patients coming under attack for using their knowledge and skills to provide the best care possible to patients. Physicians shouldn’t have to fear legal prosecution simply for providing basic healthcare and patients in states with abortion bans deserve access to this care. Don’t let out-of-state zealotry sink its claws into New York!
The bill is waiting for Gov. Hochul’s signature before it can be enacted, so please take this chance to let her know how important an issue it is! We have provided suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which can be customized to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
