Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards complimented Cuomo's announcement in a statement Monday as she argued that the majority of Americans support Roe v. Wade.
Officials believe six people were detained as of Sunday afternoon, after an executive order Saturday from President Donald Trump barred all refugees from entering the United States for four months. In response to confusion over how the order is carried out, or prevented by federal judicial orders, the governor has set up a hotline for families who are trying to locate a relative who might be stranded. "We're going to protect a women's right to choose", Cuomo said to rousing applause.
Trump's nomination to the Supreme Court is expected to give the current 4-4 makeup a conservative bent.
Alphonso David, the governor's chief counsel, added that the New York Department of State is establishing a hotline for detainees who desire legal assistance.

Gov. Cuomo announced on Monday that he would propose a constitutional amendment in NY to protect Roe v. Wade. Trump will select the ninth member, who would be the potential tie-breaking vote on abortion and other issues.
In announcing the plan during a "I Stand With Planned Parenthood" event hosted by Family Planning Advocates, the lobbying arm of Planed Parenthood in New York, Cuomo said he would seek to solidify women's right to an abortion in the state in the event that a future Supreme Court should overturn the controversial decision. "Most New Yorkers are immigrants".
Cuomo has previously proposed legislation to strengthen New York's abortion laws so they match specifically what's allowed under Roe v. Wade, only to be thwarted by the Republican-controlled Senate. Governor Andrew Cuomo also stated, " I am Disabled" yet as a disabled person in New York State living in state or private facilities and group homes he would be denied 911 services for emergencies and physical and sexual abuse crimes and the Constitutional right as a citizen to be protected by all of the same laws as everyone else.
To pass a state constitutional amendment in NY, two separately elected Legislatures would have to pass the measure, meaning the earliest it could be put before voters is 2019. She says even though NY has a law legalizing abortion that was approved in 1970, three years before the Supreme Court decision, it's outdated and needs to be modernized. "That's simply too long for New Yorkers to wait".
