40 years after Roe v. Wade, abortion foes march on


< Previous Page


Although bills to strengthen access to abortion are rare, there are some pending proposals in New York and Washington state.

In their state of the state speeches this month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo endorsed a bill that would further entrench the right to abortion, while Washington’s new governor, Jay Inslee, said he wants to enact a measure that would require insurers who cover maternity care — which Washington insurers are mandated to provide — to also pay for abortions.

Both Cuomo and Inslee are Democrats.

Associated Press writers David Crary and Warren Levinson in New York, Bob Johnson in Montgomery, Ala.; Andrew DeMillo in Little Rock, Ark., and Emily Wagster Pettus in Jackson, Miss., contributed to this report.
