Looking ahead: Planned Parenthood of Greater New York preps for future after reversal of Roe v. Wade


With access to safe and legal abortions hanging in the balance for countless Americans, Planned Parenthood’s New York chapter quickly condemned the court’s ruling, and leaders laid out their plans to expand and enhance abortion services after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade on Friday.

“This decision is as cruel as it is dangerous,” said Joy Calloway, interim president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York, during a virtual press conference June 24. “Banning abortion does not take away a person’s need to access abortion care and services, and we know what the consequences of this decision will be, and who will be most affected because we have already seen the devastating impact of abortion bands as they played out in states across the country.”
