U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York addresses listeners from a podium.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is joining 30 of her colleagues to protect women who cross state lines in order to seek reproductive health care.

The Freedom to Travel for Health Care Act would provide a guarantee for constitutional protections for interstate travel and prohibit any laws to restrict individuals seeking to get reproductive healthcare in pro-choice states, like New York where abortion is legal.
