On June 24, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the federal right to an abortion and initiating other limits on reproductive care in about half of all U.S. states. This unprecedented loss of a fifty-year right has put pregnant people and others in peril across the country, and many of us are struggling with a seemingly endless list of questions: What exactly does the loss of Roe mean in my state? What about my friends and relatives elsewhere in the country? How can I help others and ensure that my own rights are protected? While New York’s abortion access rights remain intact, the repercussions of this decision will still impact virtually every person with a uterus, and we want to help come up with a game plan.
