ALBANY — GOV. KATHY HOCHUL on Tuesday said New York will continue “standing strong” against right-wing extremists, after the state’s highest court ruled that New York can continue to require companies with health insurance plans to cover medically necessary abortions. The Court of Appeals’ unanimous ruling to uphold New York’s regulations for insurance coverage of abortion care is “a critical step” towards protecting fundamental freedoms, Hochul said in a statement. “As Governor, I’m committed to ensuring New York continues to be a safe harbor for anyone who needs abortion care.”

Dennis Poust, executive director of the New York State Catholic Conference, said he expects an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to AP.
