1. Reproductive Health Act

Question Title

* 1. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act on Jan. 22. It took “a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion,” according to Cuomo.
Those in favor say it establishes the rights afforded to women under the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision into state law, protecting them if a conservative court overturns the landmark case.
Those opposed, including President Trump, say it goes well beyond that and legalizes late-term abortions until the moment of birth.
The law establishes that abortion is legal under three circumstances: The abortion occurs before the end of the 24th week of the pregnancy; the abortion is "necessary” to protect the patient's life or health; and there is an absence of "fetal viability," or the ability for the fetus to survive outside the womb.
