Our Work in New York State

We are New York’s health care partner ensuring statewide access to the family planning services and sexual and reproductive health care New Yorkers require.

We support public health policies that promote a sound health care system and fight any efforts to curtail access to care.

Through our PAC and PC, we support lawmakers who advocate for policies and programs that support reproductive freedom.

Our History

New York legalized abortion on April 9, 1970, three years prior to the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973, which legalized abortion nationwide. However, the need for continued advocacy was clear.

In 1977, Family Planning Advocates of New York State was created to defend reproductive rights and promote progressive family planning policies in New York State. Later, Planned Parenthood Advocates of New York was added to channel our political advocacy.

Now, as Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts, we continue our mission here in Albany, and across the state through our work with our elected officials, policy makers, and other state and federal agencies.
