Mayor Eric Adams signed legislation to protect access to safe and affordable abortions in New York City. 

Coming on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that effectively overturned Roe v. Wade, these six bills will strengthen abortion protections, make medication abortion free at all New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene clinics, and improve public health education so every New Yorker and person visiting New York City for reproductive health care knows their rights and their options for receiving care.

The passage and signing of the bills underscore the city’s commitment to protecting the women in New York and outsiders seeking reproductive asylum in the city.
