New York has been called the “abortion capital of America,” where it has been legally protected since 1970. This makes New York the first U.S. state to provide statewide abortion access. Furthermore, New York does not impose restrictions such as 24 waiting periods or required parental involvement, which can be found in other U.S. states.

===Laws & Restrictions===

In New York, all women, teenage or adult, can receive abortions without permission from parents or outsiders.  State law requires that abortions are performed within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy or in order to save the mother’s life. The abortion must be performed on advice of an M.D. If an abortion is performed and not considered justifiable, or if it is not done within 24 weeks, the abortion can be considered a felony.
