"The Catholic Church does not believe in a woman's right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view," Cuomo said on WAMC, a public radio station in Albany. "I understand their religious view when it comes to marriage equality. But I'm not here to legislate religion."

The Massachusetts House has voted to repeal a series of antiquated state laws, including a ban on abortion with origins dating to 1845. Supporters describe the move as a hedge against possible future rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court. Republican President Donald Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the court has raised the possibility the 1973 Roe v.
