Rule Full Text

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is proposing that the Board of Health amend Article 203 of the New York City Health Code to align it with recently adopted New York State and New York City legislation to provide the same strong level of protection for confidential medical information about spontaneous terminations of pregnancy reported to the Department as that provided to induced terminations of pregnancy.

    I’ve read the change closely and support the initiative to protect out of state residents receiving an abortion in NYS from criminal proceedings against them.

    I agree with this rule. But more importantly I agree with any rule or regulation that protects the privacy and medical history of anyone.
