Abortion Wins in Ohio & More SRH Updates

Ohio Votes "Yes" on Abortion Rights

Earlier this month, voters in Ohio codified the right to abortion in their state constitution!

This is a HUGE victory that affirms Ohioans’ right to sexual and reproductive health care and education. It also reflects the overwhelming support -- and need -- for abortion access and reproductive freedom across the country. 

At PPCWNY, we provide education and care to empower our patients and clients to make the reproductive and sexual health choices that are best for them. We believe everyone should have the same access to information and care, no matter their zip code. We have had enough of the attacks on abortion care and are delivering a resounding message to anyone who thinks they can take away our autonomy: we will not back down until every single person across the country has the freedom to make their own decisions, define their own path, and safely care for their families and communities.  

Blueprint for Sexual & Repro Health, Rights, and Justice

On October 25, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, alongside more than 100 domestic and global organizations in the sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice communities, released the 2023 Blueprint for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice Policy Agenda. This document builds on the work of the Biden-Harris administration over the last three years and serves as a proactive federal executive branch-focused policy agenda for immediate implementation and into the future.

Mifepristone News

On October 13, New York State Attorney General Letitia James led a multistate coalition of 24 attorneys general in filing an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to support the FDA and Danco Laboratories LLC’s petitions to reverse the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit’s ruling which reinstated medically unnecessary restrictions on Mifepristone. The coalition wrote that if the Fifth Circuit decision takes effect, it could disrupt access to the most common method of abortion, harming countless individuals in need of abortion care or management of pregnancy loss, with widespread implications for the health care system.

Attorney General James filed the amicus brief with the attorneys general of Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

NYS Medicaid members are eligible for CHW services during pregnancy and up to 12 months after the end of pregnancy, regardless of its outcome. More details can be found here.
