‘A Sad and Evil Day’: New York Legalizes Abortion Up to Baby’s Birth Day on Anniversary of Roe v. Wade by Emily Jones CBN News
GNN Note – I’m not sure exactly how this isn’t considered murder – it sounds like murder to me. If you’ve not read Only Light Can Drive Out Darkness you should. It explains, in very simple terms, what happens to society as this evil is allowed to continue to permeate our communities. This is completely unsustainable. Maybe if we stopped murdering children inside the mothers womb there would be no need to import people to perform jobs that are currently unfilled – just sayin’.
This is the sound from the NY Senate chamber after the 38-24 vote to:
– Add abortion to the NY Constitution
– Allow non-physicians to commit abortions
– Allow abortion through third trimester
– Repeal protections for surviving babies

New York legislators cheered and applauded Tuesday night after the state Senate removed restrictions on late-term abortions, allowing unborn babies to be aborted on 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).
“Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion,” Gov. Cuomo said.
The law erases New York’s previous limitations on abortion which restricted the fatal procedure past 24 weeks.
The Reproductive Health 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 Reproductive Health Act changes that. Instead, abortion will be regulated under public health law and a variety of medical professionals, not just licensed physicians, will be allowed to perform abortions without penalty.
