I am not a lawyer or a legal scholar, so I will talk in layman's terms.  The recently passed Reproductive Health Act in NYS removed abortion from the criminal code and placed it in the healthcare code.  This was meant to protect a Woman's Right to Choose to have an abortion.  What I believe was an unintended consequence was it decriminalized abortion against the wishes of the mother.  If you believe in a Woman's Right to Choose, It should include a Woman's Right to Choose to have a child, not just a choice to abort.  I ask that an abortion without the mother's consent, or her legal proxy if she is unable to do so, be added to the Criminal Code in NYS.  Many other states have laws that make this distinction, while still protecting a Woman's reproductive rights.   

On Feb 3, 2019, Anyhony Hobson is alleged to have murdered Jennifer Irigoyen and her unborn child.  Jennifer was five months pregnant at the time.  Hobson was originally charged with Abortion in the Second Degree, but the DA had top drop those charges, due to the terms of the Reproductive Health Act.  Jennifer's family and friends not only lost her that day, but her child as well.  Her right to choose, in this case choose to have a child, was taken away from her and under current terms, there are no criminal consequences for that.
