NOTES:

The Reproductive Health Act :

- Guarantees that a woman can make her own personal, private health care decisions, especially when her health is endangered;

- Treats the regulation of abortion as an issue of public health and medical practice rather than as a potential crime;

- Affirms New Yorkers' right to use (or refuse) contraception, regardless of what politicians in Congress decide.
