“A top city health official said Friday that Mayor Adams’ administration supports several new City Council bills designed to expand abortion services and protections — the legislative body’s response to a Supreme Court decision last week overturning Roe v. Wade.

The bills, which were announced Thursday, include measures to enable health clinics to provide abortion pills for free, prohibit city cash from paying for enforcement of abortion restrictions and allow for civil lawsuits against entities interfering with medical care, such as anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers…

While Louison, who spoke Friday at the Council’s Committee on Women and Gender Equity, said the administration supported the “goals” and “intent” of the new bills, she didn’t say what, if anything, needs to be revised.

When asked about this, Louison declined to comment, but a Health Department spokeswoman said there are still legal and logistical issues that must be hammered out.

Councilwoman Carlina Rivera (D-Manhattan), who’s sponsoring the bill that would make abortion pills free, said one of those hurdles could include funding. Councilwoman Gale Brewer (D-Manhattan) raised that issue as well, asking Louison exactly how that would be coordinated.

“I do not have that answer right now,” she responded.”
