Full Bill Text

A 182 would establish a “buffer zone” to prohibit interference with access to reproductive health care services.

Under A 182, a person would be guilty of criminal interference with health services or religious worship in the second degree when they knowingly injure, intimidate or interfere with a person obtaining or providing or assisting in obtaining or providing reproductive health services.  This would include committing such crimes or engaging in a course of conduct or repeatedly committing acts within twenty-five feet of the premises of a reproductive health care facility.

The “premises of a reproductive health care facility” include:

  • a driveway, entrance, entryway or exit of such facility;
  • any parking lot in which the facility has an ownership or leasehold interest; and
  • any public parking lots within 200 feet of the facility which serve the facility.
