Cuomo Bucks Trend on Abortion

"Bucking a trend in which states have been seeking to restrict abortion, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is putting the finishing touches on legislation that would guarantee women in New York the right to late-term abortions when their health is in danger or the fetus is not viable," the New York Times reports.

Cuomo's proposal "would also clarify that licensed health care practitioners, and not only physicians, can perform abortions. It would remove abortion from the state's penal law and regulate it through the state's public health law."
