Starting a move of blue states doing the same thing, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York signed into law a bill in 2019 that would legalize abortions up to birth. The move prompted worldwide criticism from pro-life people across the globe.
But in one analysis article, pro-life columnist Matt Walsh made an interesting observation. He noted how the state of New York prohibits the death penalty but now allows abortions of unborn babies up until the day of their birth. That makes it so that while convicted murderers can’t receive a lethal injection, unborn babies can.
Just to drive home the point, here is how a late-term abortion — the kind of abortion just legalized in New York — is carried out: as it has been explained by a former abortionist, the baby is injected with a poison directly into his skull or torso. He then suffers a hideously painful death, which he will certainly feel because of his developed nervous system. The mother carries the corpse around in her womb for a day. The next day, there is an ultrasound to check if the baby is dead. If he isn’t — if he has been writhing and suffering in agony for the past 24 hours, clinging onto life — then he will be injected again. The following day, the mother delivers her dead child. Sometimes she delivers him at the clinic, but if she can’t make it on time, the clinic is perfectly happy to recommend that she give birth into her toilet.
The crucial fact is that a delivery must happen either way. If a mother in the third trimester decides she doesn’t want or can’t have her baby inside her, she is going to have to deliver him one way or another. The only question is whether she will deliver a dead child or a living one. Giving a lethal injection to the child may be the more convenient route, but it is certainly not the safer or healthier or more necessary one.
Speaking of lethal injection, in case you haven’t yet grasped how twisted this law is, consider that capital punishment has been ruled unconstitutional in New York. You are not allowed to give a lethal injection to convicted serial killers, pedophiles, rapists, school shooters, or any other species of monster. But you can give a lethal injection to an infant. Indeed, you can only give lethal injections to infants in New York. The crime of child rape will not earn you the needle. The crime of being conceived in the wrong womb might. It is a capital offense, and you may well be made to suffer dearly for it.
The hypocrisy is unreal, but don’t expect the mainstream media to call blue states like New York out on it.
Meanwhile, New Jersey became the latest to legalize abortions up to birth. Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill into law that will legalize abortions up to birth, even though he claims to be a practicing Catholic.
