New York lawmakers failed to approve a Constitutional Amendment this legislat9ive session that would created a “right” in the state Constitution to kill babies in abortions. Although abortions are legal up to birth in New York, a so-called right to kill unborn babies in abortions would have cemented that law.

members of the state Senate adjourned Friday without taking action on the radical pro-abortion measure.

Now, if the day every comes that pro-life advocates control the state legislature, they could repeat the law and ban abortions someday.

Also, under the measure, abortionists would face no legal repercussions for killing babies in other states and not be charged with professional misconduct or be denied medical malpractice insurance.

Last month, a U.S. Supreme Court draft opinion that would overrule Roe was leaked. Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins called the leaked opinion a “five-alarm fire.”

“We are viscerally reminded that there is no end to the fight for our rights,” Stewart-Cousins said. “New York must once again take up the mantle and lead where other levels of government have failed.”

The measures, which were also approved in the State Assembly, come with funding for people from other states where the procedure is banned to travel to New York. In some cases, the state would pay for plane fare, gas money, lodging, and other related expenses.

Republicans in the Senate, who are in the minority party in the chamber, voted against the measures. Sen. Phil Boyle, a Republican who represents portions of Long Island, said while most of his constituents likely support the right to have an abortion, they might not back the idea of their taxes paying for people from other states to have the procedure.

He said Hochul has already directed that $35 million of taxpayer money be used to support abortion care clinics, including funding travel and health care services for out-of-state patients.

“You do a poll in your district, the vast majority will be probably going to be pro-choice,” Boyle said. “But then ask them, ‘Do you want to use your taxpayer money to pay for abortions for women who travel to New York state if Roe v. Wade is overturned to receive those abortions? I guarantee you, it’s a lot the other way.”

If the measure isn’t approved by the end of the 2022 calendar year, it could not go before voters until at least 2025.
