Democratic New York Governor Kathy Hochul claimed on Sunday that after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the Empire State will become a “safe haven” for those seeking abortions, Fox News informed.

Hochul also claimed that all of the voters will have the chance to vote against the former President Trump’s nominees in the midterms in November.

In an interview with MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show,” Kathy Hochul said that in preparation for a surge in the number of persons seeking abortions in New York, she had previously set aside $35 million for abortion clinics to expand their services.

Hochul remarked that there would be a huge influx of people coming in New York, adding that the Statue of Liberty will be welcoming all those who are oppressed.

Hochul also said that women who are unable to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination or abortion and those who are victimized are welcome.

In New York, where the late-term abortions are legal, the governor noted that legislation protecting providers from being sued in cases where patients travel from other states for an abortion was already signed a week ago. She also emphasized the fact that these laws prevent a person from being extradited from the state of New York to be tried elsewhere for an abortion.

Hochul said that it is still New York and that these rights will continue to exist adding that women had access to abortions in New York even three years prior to Roe v. Wade.

Hochul also said that although Roe v. Wade was now a part of the state law, they were still looking for ways to make it stronger.

Hochul conjectured that the Supreme Court’s decision could result in more federal government overreach regarding reproductive issues, such as contraception, even though it says that the Constitution does not protect a woman’s right to an abortion and returns that decision to state legislatures.

In addition, Hochul predicted that a key election topic in November would be abortion, blaming Trump for approving three Supreme Court nominees during his four years in government.

Those judges were Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Neil Gorsuch.
