New York passed a law Tuesday that allows abortion “at any time” to protect a woman’s “life or health.” The state’s previous law, which had been in place three years prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade, prohibited abortions after 24 weeks, the point increasingly understood to be viability, unless the procedure was necessary to save a women's life.

In the days following Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signing of the law, NFL player Benjamin Watson, Albany Bishop Edward Scharfenberger, and pro-life leaders condemned the bill.

Mothers and other family members joined in on the public outcry, sharing pictures of their babies that the bill would’ve allowed abortion for while still in the womb or, in some cases, just days or hours before the pictures were taken.
