Or, as Ben Shapiro puts it,
New York Governor Cuomo wants to ban the Death Penalty…Except for Unborn Children; go ahead and kill those.
Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the most comprehensive abortion law in the United States. This new law, passed by the now-100%-Democrat controlled Legislature, allows termination of a pregnancy up to the moment of birth. Yes, that is correct, New York now allows a full-term BABY to be murdered if the mother and her doctor deem her health in danger. Various “news” outlets describe this as “updating” New York abortion laws, and “adding strong legal protections” for “abortion rights”.
The above-mentioned Governor of New York is nominally a Catholic. As I remember it, the Catholic Church forbids contraception, and defines abortion as murder. And the Catholic Bishops have reacted to this new law that is celebrated by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Bishops call for Cuomo to be excommunicated.
Look at that tag line on the podium. No Time to Wait. And the title of the new law is the “Reproductive Health Act”. However, one thing the act ignores is the fact that the pregnant woman is not the only individual affected by abortion. What about the child? Well, this new law in New York deems that child disposable. The statistics show that, in New York, more black babies are aborted than are born. Does this indicate discrimination against minorities? Nope, the Progressives in New York are perfectly fine with it, since Abortion is their Holy Sacrament.
And what about the Abortion Doctors? Doesn’t the Hippocratic Oath say “First Do No Harm”? I guess that in New York, the Culture of Death rules even the medical profession. This list was taken off a Web Site called “safest abortion”, by a medical group, NY OB-GYN Associates.
- Teenagers do not need their parent’s permission to have an abortion.
- There are no waiting periods
- No need for state approval
- Patients can perform their abortion in their doctor’s office.
- New York State Medicaid covers abortion for women with a low income.
Although, there are some pro-life doctors who have spoken out against this destructive (literally!) new law. But it appears that they are in the minority.
It is a crying shame, what Feminism hath wrought in the United States, and around the world. Human beings are reduced to the status of afterthoughts, permitted to be done away with, even if they can sustain life if allowed to be born. I never had children myself, but this new law makes me very sad. I weep for the babies who will not be allowed to live, and contribute to the tapestry that is Humanity.
