NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today continued her leadership of the nation’s fight to ensure women’s reproductive health care is not stifled or infringed upon in any way during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019) public health crisis. Attorney General James is leading a coalition of 19 attorneys general in filing an amicus brief — supporting the plaintiffs in Planned Parenthood v. Abbott, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit — opposing the State of Texas’s directive banning nearly all abortion services in the state, using the coronavirus as an excuse.
