NY: Adams inks deal to offer abortion pills at NYC clinics

Source: New York Post

“City-run health clinics will soon be able to provide ‘medical abortions’ with pills to terminate a pregnancy — a move critics charge will turn New York into an abortion tourist mecca. The city Department of Health and Mental Health, in a legal notice, said it intends to enter into a ‘sole source’ contract with Nixon-Shane LLC/ R&S Northeast LLC., to buy 200 milligram mifepristone tablets — the abortion pill. Mifepristone is used with another pill, misoprostol, to abort a pregnancy within the first 11 weeks of gestation. In the public notice, the health department said it’s buying the abortion pill ‘to mitigate the threat to public health posed by the recent Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe vs Wade, which provided a constitutional right to abortion.'” (01/15/23)
