As the rest of the nation seems to be doing all it can to all but undo Roe v. Wade, New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo is going in the other direction. According to the Global Post, Cuomo is drafting a plan that would make sure all women in the state of New York would “have the right to late-term abortions when their health is in danger or the fetus is not viable.”
Now people can think what they would like about abortion. It is generally the sort of thing people’s minds do not change on, but, personally, as a woman, it comes as a huge relief. I shudder to think what it would be like to be forced to carry a fetus that would never be viable to full term because the law said I had to, or what it would be like to be forced to put my own life in danger, or risk going to jail, if I refused. Nothing good ever comes of such laws, and Cuomo has the right idea here.
