Tell NYS Legislators to pass A1709 - Expand Abortion Access

It is important to advance laws and policies recognizing abortion as a human right and to support the work of clinicians and activists in providing reproductive health care through telemedicine.  Telemedicine shield laws are an effective way for states to provide some legal protection from criminal and civil liability for medical providers who seek to provide the full range of reproductive health care services to women and pregnant people nationwide. These providers are acting in response to the dramatic decrease in services for the most marginalized communities as a result of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Providers practicing in states where abortion remains legally available are seeking to serve those denied abortion access elsewhere because they view access to abortion as a human right.
