New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has taken most of the criticism for signing a radical pro-abortion bill into law last week.
And while Cuomo certainly should be held accountable, so should the majority of New York state lawmakers who voted to strip away all protections for unborn babies – and then celebrated afterward. Supporting the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth is reprehensible, and it’s something voters must remember when they go to the polls in 2020.
Last week, the New York governor, who claims to be Catholic, signed the pro-abortion law to legalize the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth in the state.
Polls indicate the new law is radically out of touch with most Americans’ views on abortion. However, a strong majority of state Assembly members and a majority of state Senators still voted for it.
Their votes allow unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to 24 weeks and up to birth for “health” reasons, a broad category that includes basically anything. The new law redefines a “person” as “a human being who has been born and is alive,” and describes abortion as a “fundamental right.” The law also removes state protections for infants born alive in botched abortions and penalties for non-abortion fetal homicide.
The final vote in the state Assembly was 95-49, and the final vote in the state Senate was 38-24. The primary sponsors of the legislation were state Sen. Liz Krueger and state Assemblywoman Deborah Glick.
