Hochul wants to battle online abortion misinformation

Sep 13, 2021 1:33 pm

Nick Reisman reports at New York State of Politics that Gov. Kathy Hochul is combating misinformation online about the state's abortion laws with a strongly worded letter to Facebook. "We have a letter going to Facebook today," Hochul said during a news conference in New York City Sept. 13. "We'll see what they do with it." The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of a law that places limits on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. But that law is not on the books in New York. Hochul's administration plans to start airing public service announcements for New Yorkers and visitors on abortion and create a patient bill of rights for women outlining what access to services they have in the state. "It will be in clear language," Hochul said, "and in languages people understand." Read more about this story at New York State of Politics.
