New York (State). Governor's Committee Appointed to Review New York State's Abortion Law.

In January 1968, Governor Nelson Rockefeller appointed this 11-member Committee to review New York's Abortion Law and recommend appropriate changes in time for the upcoming legislative session. The Committee was comprised of 10 men and one woman including clergy, law experts, physicians, and others.

At the time of the Committee's appointment, New York was one of 39 states in which abortion was illegal except where necessary to preserve the mother's life. The Committee was to determine which other abortional acts, if any, should be exempt from criminal consequences (i.e. declared "non-criminal") and under what conditions.
