  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds  that  comprehen-
sive  reproductive health care, including contraception and abortion, is
a fundamental component of a woman's health, privacy and  equality.  The
New  York  Constitution and United States Constitution protect a woman's
fundamental right to access safe, legal abortion, courts have repeatedly
reaffirmed this right and further emphasized that states may  not  place
undue burdens on women seeking to access such right.
  Moreover, the legislature finds, as with other medical procedures, the
safety  of  abortion  is furthered by evidence-based practices developed
