STATEMENT FROM A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement:

“The legislation signed by President Trump today marks yet another regressive decision by men in Washington aimed at restricting a woman’s fundamental right to make her own reproductive health choices.

“No health care provider should have to choose between providing basic reproductive health care and other vital public health services.

“I was proud to lead a coalition of Attorneys General in filing an amicus brief against the Ohio state law that would defund Planned Parenthood and other health care providers.

“And I will continue to do all I can to protect women’s fundamental reproductive rights, no matter what happens in Washington.”
