Just sickening, lost what little respect I had for that hell hole of a state. I really question what this world is coming to.
Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus' health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.
Also watch the reaction of the public when that evil witch makes the claim.

Abortion, Politics - U.S.Tue Jan 22, 2019 - 6:20 pm EST
ALBANY, New York, January 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Both chambers of the New York state legislature voted Tuesday on legislation to enshrine a “fundamental right” to abortion in state law and eliminate protections for preborn babies until birth, in votes set to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
The state Senate voted 38-24 in favor of the so-called “Reproductive Health Act” Tuesday evening, the Albany Times-Union reports, a bill that has repeatedly cleared the state Assembly in years past but been blocked by the formerly-Republican Senate. Following the Senate vote, the Assembly passed it 92-47.
The bill declares that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” erases the state’s recognition of preborn babies older than 24 weeks as potential homicide victims, removes abortion from the penal code entirely, and allows licensed health practitioners other than full doctors to commit abortions.
Democrats in New York have elected to take away all rights for the unborn up to the day the human fetus is to be born.
The bill, which I am linking again below, gives women the right to abort for any reason, and removes all protections for the unborn. This bill also takes away homicide charges if a murderer kills a pregnant woman. No longer is the life of the unborn defended in any circumstance, including murder, by this bill.

The Reproductive Health Act maintains the 24-week limit under which women can seek abortions but adds a provision for abortions at any time if the baby would not survive the birth. Additionally, the act permits abortions at any point if it is necessary to protect the mother's life or health.
Many people in the left claim that Roe vs Wade allows for abortion for any "health related issue", but it doesn't. Instead Doe v. Bolton redefined what "health of the mother" actually means. It includes allowing abortion under any circumstance, including "physical, emotional, psychological, familial and the woman's age." This even includes "economic reasons" as a viable excuse to allow abortions.

Abortion: What the 'Health' Exemption Really Means
Democrats and Liberals have once again shown to have no regard for human life, since all protections of the unborn will be repealed if Cuomo signs this bill, which he has stated he would sign such a bill.
What this bill does is legalizing infanticide, since there is no difference between a baby who is to be born in the last day of pregnancy, and a baby that has just been born.
Democrats and Liberals have once again chosen death over life, and have chosen to take away all rights of the unborn.
In the past I have shown that Democrats and Liberals will expand on abortion, and this bill proves it. But what's more this is not the only expansion "Democrats and Liberals want."
The next step in the left agenda will be to legalize "after birth abortions," and you can be sure that just like this bill has garnered the votes of democrats on both houses, "after birth abortion" will also garner the votes of the left in both houses in a not so distant future.

Finally, it legalizes abortion after 24 weeks in cases where it would protect a woman's health or where a fetus is not viable. State law previously only allowed abortions after 24 weeks if the woman's life was in jeopardy.

To be honest I expected it to happen in some state soon. As to Hillary, that's been her stance. She is right, at this time the unborn have no enumerated rights. I say late term abortion is infanticide, the law does not.
I'm most concerned with whether or not this evolves into euthanizing less than perfect children at the time of birth. I think we are one generation away from that.
Roe v Wade, in regards to the third trimester of pregnancy, whose right to abort
The state has acquired a compelling interest which would override the woman's right to privacy & justify stringent regulation even to the extent of prohibiting Abortions.

Pretty important to include this part of the law.
§ 2599-bb. Abortion. 1. A health care practitioner licensed, certi-
43 fied, or authorized under title eight of the education law, acting with-
44 in his or her lawful scope of practice, may perform an abortion when,
45 according to the practitioner's reasonable and good faith professional
46 judgment based on the facts of the patient's case: the patient is within
47 twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an
48 absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the
49 patient's life or health.
The Doe v. Bolton case defined the “health of the mother” in such a way that any abortion for any reason could be protected by the language of the decision. Its definition of health includes “all factors—physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman's age—relevant to the well-being of the patient. ALL these factors may relate to health.”
