Fund Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care for All!
January 23, 2013
Today, the New York City Council approved a resolution calling on Congress to support and protect funding for comprehensive reproductive health care services, including abortion.
At a hearing last week, our consulting medical director Anne Davis, MD, MPH, testified to the importance of affordable, accessible, comprehensive reproductive health care for all. About abortion, Dr. Davis told the council's Committee on Women's Issues:
"I see women every day who rely on Medicaid for their health care. Many of them already have children, have low-paying jobs, and are struggling to get by. They know that they cannot have another child at this time and know that abortion is the right decision for them and their families.
"All women deserve health insurance that covers their health care needs, and these women, because they live in New York, are able to get their abortions without delay. This should be our standard for women across the country."
