Webinar: How has the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling impacted the delivery of Family Planning Program services in New York State?
In response to the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court ruling, New York State has expanded access to services in order to ensure that clients seeking reproductive health care services in New York can continue to get the care that they need. In this webinar, we discussed the implications of recent funding distributed to Family Planning Program (FPP) providers to expand their capacity for pregnancy termination services. As New York State continues to expand access, FPP providers may experience an increased demand for family planning services. We also discussed how FPP agencies have responded to or are preparing for an increased demand for services and resources that can support providers in responding to this increased demand. Finally, we reviewed relevant Title X program requirements including that pregnancy termination services must be separate and distinct from Title X family planning services; that Title X providers can refer clients for Title X services across state lines; and that they must provide nondirective options counseling and referrals.
