Children of Bellevue Statement to Roe v. Wade Decision
Children of Bellevue is deeply saddened and angered by today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. It is completely antithetical to our mission and values that bodily autonomy is reserved only for a portion of our population, thus forcing the other into situations that could threaten the wellbeing of their own life and ability to reach their greatest potential. Children and adolescents who suffer from unwanted pregnancies due to rape and incest remain the most vulnerable and are now left with even fewer options – or no options at all – for proper care, and this is unacceptable. Partnering with the healthcare providers at NYC Health+Hospitals/Bellevue, Children of Bellevue is grateful for the privilege of serving New York children and their families in a state with some of the most comprehensive abortion protection laws. For those outside of New York State seeking reproductive healthcare, you have a safe haven here and we will continue to fight for your access to it.
