No, it complies with Roe, which states that after viability (assumed now to be around 24 weeks) states may regulate or ban abortion, which New York has done with this bill. I’m perfectly comfortable leaving a person’s medical decisions in their hands, along with the agreement of their doctor. Incredibly implausible that a doctor will recommend, let alone perform the “legal murder” of a “perfectly viable infant.” Common though relatively rare plausibility that a woman will be forced to carry a non-viable, a dead fetus to term. Also plausible that a woman will be forced to risk her health or her fertility under the former law. Get the grubby handed law makers out of the doctor’s office, not their business, usually the global center of their prejudice and ignorance.
