GREENWICH VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) -- New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday that the state will commit more than $13 million to abortion providers.
The announcement came in response to the influx of pregnant people coming to New York from other states for access to reproductive health care.
In Greenwich Village on Wednesday, Hochul vowed to keep abortion legal in New York.
"We'll fight. We'll fight like hell to make sure that no one ever touches these rights, right here," Hocul said.
After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade this past June, Governor Hochul signed bills extending protections for pregnant people.
"We'll be that beacon of hope. We'll be that safe harbor for women all across the nation," Hochul said.
One law makes it illegal for another state to sue someone for an abortion they had in New York.
