On January 22, 2019, new abortion law was adopted in New York, permitting abortion up to the last day of pregnancy when “necessary to protect the patient’s [mother’s] life or health”.

Abortion will not be penalized since it is now recognized as a matter of public health.

Until now, abortion after the 24th week of pregnancy in New York was illegal, with the exceptions indicated in the Act. At the same time, the highest number of abortions is carried out in New York.
