§ 17-199.2.1 Report on medical services relating to reproductive health care. a. Definitions. As used in this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Abortion. The term “abortion” has the meaning given to the term “induced termination of pregnancy” as such term is defined in subdivision c of section 203.01 of the health code.

Reproductive health care. The term “reproductive health care” means any medical service provided to a person relating to the reproductive system and its processes, functions and organs. Reproductive health care includes, but is not limited to, services related to contraception, sterilization, preconception care, maternity care, abortion care and counseling regarding reproductive health care.

b. No later than January 30, 2023, and on January 30 annually thereafter, the department shall submit to the mayor and the speaker of the council and post online a report, based upon the data included in the most recently published annual summary of vital statistics, on data regarding the provision of medical services in the city related to reproductive health care, to the extent such data is available to the department, disaggregated by borough and, to the extent possible without revealing personally identifiable information, further disaggregated by age, ethnicity, and race. Such report shall include, but need not be limited to, data on the following reproductive health care provided in the city based upon the data included in the most recently published annual summary of vital statistics:

1. The number of births and the number of abortions provided;

The report required pursuant to this section shall include an assessment of the ability of licensed medical providers in the city to accommodate individuals seeking medical services related to reproductive health care, including, but not limited to, assessing potential issues such providers or individuals might face in providing or receiving such services, and recommendations for increasing the capacity of medical services provided in the city.
