REPEAL THE RHA!
Dear NYS State Legislature
The RHA Degrades Women and Dehumanizes Children. NY's Reproductive Health Act (RHA) is an embarrassment to women and the State of New York
New York enacted the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) in January, 2019. This law allows for the killing of viable unborn children, including healthy children in utero, for any reason within 24 weeks of pregnancy. Modern medical science is clear that unborn children can be viable (capable of survival outside the womb) as early as 22-23 weeks gestation.
The RHA permits killing viable unborn children, including healthy children in utero, during the later-second and third trimester of pregnancy for reasons unrelated to a mother's physical health. In NY, approximately 1,500 unborn children are aborted each year at 20+ weeks gestation. Studies show most later-term abortions are 'elective.'
The RHA did away with NY's longstanding fetal homicide law. Because of the RHA it is no longer a crime in NY for abusers to kill viable unborn children, including wanted unborn children, in attacks on their mothers.
The RHA allows for an undefined group of health care practitioners to perform abortions, including surgical, second and third trimester abortions. Studies show that even mid-level health care providers that perform abortions have higher rates of “incomplete abortion,” uterine “perforation” and “hemorrhage” than physicians performing abortions.
The RHA eradicated NY Public Health Law (PHL) 4164, which allows for later-second and third trimester abortions to occur in facilities other than hospitals. According to studies, including, Risk Factors for Legal Induced Abortion-Related Mortality in the United States, the "risk of death" for "women obtaining legally induced abortions" "increase[s] exponentially by 38% for each additional week of gestation.”
Eliminating PHL 4164 also allows for infants who survive abortion to die without adequate "medical care" or without a second physician present to care for that infant. According to the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention children are sometimes born alive during later-term induced abortions.
