Advancing Birth Justice
NIRH believes in the right of people who can become pregnant to choose when and whether to become parents, and the right of every person to parent their children with dignity and in safety. We support policies that increase equitable access to doula care, address maternal mortality, and provide insurance coverage to pregnant and parenting people.

Funding New York’s Abortion Care and Infrastructure
In 2022, NIRH teamed up with New York Governor Kathy Hochul to create a $35M investment to directly support New York abortion providers in anticipation of Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Andrea Miller, President of NIRH, called this initiative a “down payment” on the necessary response to Roe being overturned.
