Will Rhode Island follow New York in legalizing abortion up to birth, for any reason?

State legislators in Rhode Island have introduced a pair of bills to legalize abortion up to the moment of birth, echoing a new law in New York.

Reportedly stoked by fears that the U.S. Supreme Court will soon reverse the landmark 1973 decision Roe v. Wade, rallies for and against the proposed legislation were held in Providence this week.

State Representative Edith Ajello of Providence, who introduced the Reproductive Health Care Act earlier this month, said in a statement that she had an “illegal abortion” in 1965 and did not want to return to that time.
