Editor comment: This bill illustrates the increasing moral depravity of our country. We have so many euphemisms to hide the reality of what is happening. This is not “pro-choice” “reproductive rights” “empowerment of women” but this is murder of innocent babies. This is a brutal taking of a baby’s right to live for what reason? Sexual freedom? Inconvenience of having a child? Indifference to human life? There is no justification for a bill like this and may God have mercy on America as it continues to sink in the muck of evil.
New York legislators cheered and applauded Tuesday night after the state Senate removed restrictions on late-term abortions, allowing unborn babies to be aborted up until the day of birth.
The Reproductive Health Act passed with a 38-28 vote and was signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
The law erases New York’s previous limitations on abortion which restricted the fatal procedure past 24 weeks. Supporters say those late-term abortions are being allowed in order to protect the lives of women, but pro-life advocates say that’s just a ruse, pointing out that those late-term babies are clearly viable human lives who could otherwise survive outside the womb.
“RHA is an extreme bill sold to the public saying it merely ‘updates’ New York’s law, which is far from true. RHA will expand abortion past 24 weeks through birth, make abortion a ‘fundamental right,’ and prohibit all limits, which Roe vs. Wade did *not* do,” New York State Right to Life said in a Facebook post.
Christina Fadden, chair of New York State Right to Life explained further, “RHA has expanded abortion-on-demand in New York past 24 weeks – well past when unborn children feel pain, are viable, and suffer during the course of an abortion – and up to birth. This is inhumane.”
The act states, “every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.”
The law also removes abortion from the definition of homicide and New York’s criminal code altogether. Previously, New York law treated the murder of an unborn child in its the third trimester as a felony offense punishable by up to seven years in prison.
The shocked response has been rolling in across the nation after Democrat lawmakers in the state of New York did the unthinkable Tuesday, legalizing the abortion of unborn babies all the way up until the point of birth. The response on CBNNews.com has been stunning as more than a million readers simply can’t fathom why any state would allow viable babies to be killed.
Pro-life advocates point out the law is presented under the guise of protecting women’s health, but it permits late-term abortions of unborn babies who could otherwise survive outside the womb.
News of the new law sent shockwaves through the pro-life community. Many are grieving about what it will mean for lost human lives and pointing out the sheer hypocrisies behind what the Left has just done, especially as they try to claim the moral high ground on so many other cultural issues. The stunning developments out of New York appear to be galvanizing the pro-life movement to fight abortion with renewed fervor.
Dr. James Dobson is condemning the NY legislation as barbaric.
“It is not overstating the matter to say I am horrified by the New York State Senate’s vote to pass the euphemistic Reproductive Health Act (RHA). This bill is not about reproductive health at all. It is pure barbarism on a scale rarely seen since the Middle Ages,” Dobson says. “There is a battle raging for millions of lives preordained by God himself, and it is we who must stand for them so that they might have a chance at life.”
Dr. Jack Graham, the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, says, “Those who are applauding the passage of New York’s so-dubbed Reproductive Health Act are not celebrating and promoting a step forward in women’s health rights. They are celebrating cold-blooded murder. This act is nothing short of a license to kill unborn babies, even when they could survive outside the womb.”
“That this law was received with such exuberance by so many people should spur us to action, realizing that it has never been more important to defend the sanctity of human life and to fight for those who cannot defend themselves,” he continued.
Former Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) laughed hysterically as they pushed to expand abortion rights in the New York state legislature in early January of 2019.
Janet Morana, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and executive director of @PriestsforLife tweeted:
“As a native New Yorker my heart is broken knowing precious babies can now be killed until birth for any reason. #abortion is nothing less than homicide and to expand its bloody reach on the anniversary of #RoeVWade is a disgrace. #prolife #WakeUpAmerica”
“NY Gov. Cuomo wants to regulate potentially poisonous chemicals in cleaning products… But champions the poisoning, dismemberment, and fatality of children in the womb during abortion.”

I am proposing mandatory labeling on products containing potentially hazardous chemicals.
The more we know about our exposure to chemicals, the more frightening the situation is. Consumers have the right to know what’s inside the products they use.https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-cuomo-announces-proposal-executive-budget-protect-new-yorkers-unknown-exposure-toxic …Conservative commentator Matt Walsh blasted the Left for its hypocrisy on the life issue saying: “Trump is literally Hitler,” they said as they celebrated the mass murder of infants.
“How tragic: @NYGovCuomo orders World Trade Center to be lit pink to celebrate new law in New York permitting unborn babies to be killed by abortion up until birth… …while the WTC memorial below bears the names of 11 unborn children who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks”

“The Horrors of Auschwitz exhibit is coming to New York to make sure people don’t forget the destruction of life, yet New York just legalized the #Abortion holocaust up to birth. Blood is flowing in our streets as we continue to snuff out life in the womb. #reverseroe #prolife”
