New York State passes bill expanding abortion access and protections

New York State has enacted strong new legal protections for abortion rights. The new law, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, safeguards rights laid out in Roe v. Wade and other court rulings, including a provision permitting late-term abortions when a woman’s health is endangered. The Reproductive Health Act passed the state Senate by a vote of 38-24 and the state Assembly by a 92-47 vote.
