NYSNA Statement On The Leaked Supreme Court Draft Opinion On Roe V. Wade

(ALBANY, NEW YORK) – The New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA), which represents more than 42,000 Members across the State and is New York’s largest Union and Professional Association for Registered Nurses (RNs), has issued the following statement after the leaked Roe v Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision:

NYSNA Members have always been proud to defend Women’s rights.

The draft opinion leaked on May 2nd from the Supreme Court would undermine Roe V. Wade and decades of reproductive rights for Women in the U.S.

As Nurses and Health Care Professionals, we affirm Women’s right to health care and full reproductive health care 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 health care services, reducing maternal mortality and for greater health equity.
