PolitiFact piece about New York State's abortion law

Um, is the piece essentially wrong?

yes

the key to why it is wrong is because the law is too vague and some doctors will perform an abortion for any reason the woman claims.

a child can be killed at 12:04 if the doctor and patient agree there is an issue.

New York’s Reproductive Health Act says that a health care practitioner “may perform an abortion when, according to the practitioner’s reasonable and good faith professional judgment based on the facts of the patient’s case: the patient is within twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the patient’s life or health.”

Complex and personal decisions about reproductive healthcare are the sole right and responsibility of a woman and her medical providers.
