NYSNA Statement on the Leaked Supreme Court Draft Opinion on Roe V. Wade

NYSNA members have always been proud to defend women’s rights. The draft opinion leaked on May 2 from the Supreme Court would undermine Roe V. Wade and decades of reproductive rights for women in the U.S. As nurses and healthcare professionals, we affirm women’s right to healthcare and full reproductive healthcare services, including abortion. At a time when other democratic countries around the world are expanding women’s reproductive rights, the U.S. must not go backwards.

NYSNA members are watching the Supreme Court deliberations closely and will continue to be vocal advocates for increasing access to women’s reproductive healthcare services, reducing maternal mortality, and for greater health equity.
