In light of the recent U.S Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, Cornell Health reaffirms our commitment to supporting the sexual health and reproductive choices of every student who comes to us for care. Our advocacy for autonomy and choice –including choices related to whether or when to be pregnant – are central to the care we provide every day.
Despite the ruling, abortion remains legal, safe, and accessible in New York State. See NY Attorney General Letitia James' statement confirming that "New York will always be a safe haven for anyone seeking an abortion."
Cornell Health services
Cornell Health staff members provide confidential sexual health care available to all students, including preventive and emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, and referrals to support the continuation or end of pregnancy.
Our sexual health nurses, counselors, and medical clinicians strive to deliver care that is respectful and responsive to students’ diverse needs, experiences, values, and identities.
