Senator Brouk Votes to Pass Measures Protecting Providers and Patients Receiving Reproductive Healthcare

Senate Takes Action in Response to Leaked Supreme Court Opinion Overturning Roe v. Wade

ALBANY, NY - Senator Samra Brouk announced that she voted to pass legislation in the Senate protecting the rights of individuals seeking abortion care or gender-affirming care in New York State. The package of legislation includes measures to further protect the identities of those seeking safe and legal reproductive healthcare. New protections for abortion providers include certain legal protections for New York-based abortion service providers. The legislation continues the Senate Majority’s work to expand New Yorkers' reproductive rights including the passage of the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA).

“With the rights secured by Roe and Casey under apparent attack by an activist and highly partisan Supreme Court, I am more committed than ever to protecting your rights and ensuring that New York State is a bastion of hope for women and families across the nation,” said Senator Samra Brouk. “Today’s legislation reaffirms New York’s position as a national leader in providing safe, secure and legally-protected reproductive and gender-affirming healthcare. The Senate Majority stands with providers and the overwhelming majority of families who support the preservation of reproductive health rights and keeping such decisions between a patient and their doctor.”
