"It's been said this may be the last time that we ever vote on this subject. I thought we stopped voting on this subject in 1970 in New York State. I thought we stopped legislating this after Roe in 1973. But that's apparently not the case, and perhaps those of us who believe in human rights, have to come to the conclusion that as soon as we attain any human right, we have to continue to defend it over and over and over again, so I doubt very much that this will be the last time we discuss this," Assemblymember Charles Lavine said while speaking in favor of the Reproductive Health Act. This legislation updates New York's abortion statutes to address constitutional flaws in our laws and recognize a woman's fundamental right to access safe, legal abortion. (A.21)
