On the heels of passing sweeping gun control legislation, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing the envelope once again — this time with a call for an abortion bill that opponents say would effectively allow late-term abortion “on demand.”
Pro-life organizations and religious groups are beginning to rally against the proposal, after Cuomo declared in his Jan. 9 State of the State address that he wanted to enact a so-called “Reproductive Health Act” as part of a 10-point plan to advance “women’s equality.”
The governor did not dive into specifics in his address, but he is expected to push for provisions similar to those in a bill introduced by Democratic state Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins.
That bill contains language that would allow abortion after 24 weeks of pregnancy if it is “necessary to protect a woman’s health” — that exception is different from one protecting a woman’s life and one critics say can be broadly interpreted.
Stewart-Cousins on Tuesday urged her colleagues to bring the “crucial legislation” to the floor “as soon as possible.”
