New York's newly-signed abortion law permits abortion for any reason up until the 24th week of a pregnancy, and then afterwards in cases to protect the "life and health" of the mother, but what does this mean?
Opponents of the Reproductive Health Act, signed into law Tuesday, say it will result in the killing of healthy, viable, unborn babies. The law's supporters point to the "life and health" clause as a protection of real medical discretion. What exactly is the "life and health of the mother" in law? One Catholic law professor told CNA that it adds up to near abortion-on-demand.
