New York State Fights the National Tide on Abortion FTA:
Last year 19 states enacted 43 provisions restricting abortion access, according to the Guttmacher Institute, an abortion advocacy and research group. Not one measure was adopted to expand abortion access. In 2011, a record-breaking 92 abortion restrictions were enacted.
“Pretty much all of the energy, all of the momentum, has been to restrict abortion, which makes what could potentially happen in New York so interesting,” Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute, told The New York Times. “There’s no other state that’s even contemplating this right now.”
That's because those 19 states are stepping into the 21st century and the science behind the personhood of the unborn. No moral and informed person could rationalize abortion for the sake of convenience today; it's an impossible feat to achieve given what medicine now knows.
