New York's Reproductive Health Bill, Supported by Cuomo, Bucks Trend of Increased State Abortion Restrictions
The New York Times: Cuomo Bucks Tide With Bill to Ease Limits on Abortion, by Thomas Kaplan:
Bucking a trend in which states have been seeking to restrict abortion, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is putting the finishing touches on legislation that would guarantee women in New York the right to late-term abortions when their health is in danger or the fetus is not viable. . . .
The Journal News editorial: New York must update its abortion law:
The proposed Reproductive Health Act, part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s far ranging Women’s Equality Act, aims to update the state’s decades-old contraception and abortion law. The bill is sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers. Unsurprisingly, the measure has generated no small amount of controversy. . . .
