1. HB 2400 makes it illegal for a doctor to perform a partial birth abortion unless it is necessary to prevent a woman’s death or disability. It also would establish a maximum prison term of two year for physicians found guilty of performing the procedure (January 2009)
  2. Repealed Laws: HB 2838 (blocked) The bill would require DHS to maintain a website including a list of agencies that provide alternatives to abortion by geographic region in addition to information on prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal care. The website would also provide scientific information regarding “unborn children” and medical information on abortion procedures (March 2012).

  3. NY State participates in designing a form that abortion providers use for reporting to the state. The form requires: identification of the facility at which the abortion was performed and the physician performing the procedure; patient's demographic characteristics (eg, age, race, ethnicity, marital status and number of previous live births); gestational age, and abortion procedure used. NY STATE COLLECTS DATA ON THE FOLLOWING: Method of Payment, Complications, Reasons for Procedure (only if it's due to woman's health/life, fetal abnormality, and/or anything other than rape/incest)
