Governor Kathy Hochul Announces $35 Million to Protect Abortion Providers in New York if Roe Overturned

New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) announced on Tuesday that the state would allocate a $35 million investment to directly support abortion providers if Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

“New York has always been at the forefront of the fight for abortion rights, and as the first female Governor of New York, I will not let us go backwards,” Governor Hochul said in a statement.

“I will never stop fighting to make New York a safe harbor for all who need care and a blueprint for other states to follow. To truly guarantee that everyone who needs an abortion can get one in New York State, we must ensure that providers have the resources, capacity, and protections they need. This landmark funding will get resources into the hands of clinics who need our help — safeguarding access to abortion in our state and setting an example for the rest of the nation to follow,” Hochul added.

“Governor Kathy Hochul today announced a nation-leading $35 million investment to directly support abortion providers in anticipation of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Governor Hochul directed the Department of Health to create a $25 million Abortion Provider Support Fund for abortion providers in order to both expand capacity and ensure access for patients seeking abortion care in New York. The Governor also announced $10 million for reproductive health care centers to access security grants through the Division of Criminal Justice Services to help ensure the safety of the providers performing this vital care,” the news release stated.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, US Supreme Court voted to end Roe v Wade in a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito, which was leaked to the press in an attempt to change the outcome.

Following the news, the God-less pro-abortionist activists were quick doxxed the home address of the six conservative justices of the US Supreme Court to harass and threaten the SCOTUS Justices and their families.
