New York Court Reaffirms Its Decision Upholding Required Coverage For Medically Necessary Abortions

In Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany v. Vullo, (NY App., June 2, 2022), a New York intermediate appellate court, in a case on remand from the U.S. Supreme Court, reaffirmed its holding rejecting a challenge by several religious organizations and other plaintiffs to a New York administrative regulation  requiring health insurance policies in New York to provide coverage for medically necessary abortion services. (See prior posting) The U.S. Supreme Court had vacated the original judgment and remanded the case for further consideration in light of Fulton v. Philadelphia. (See prior posting.)
