    New York celebrates legalizing abortion until birth

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is under fire from faith leaders after he signed a bill into law that legalizes abortion up until birth in many cases. The Democratic governor directed the One World Trade Center and other landmarks to be lit in pink Tuesday to celebrate the passage of "Reproductive Health Act."

    Cuomo called it "a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values" on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. But New York Catholic bishops slammed him for the move just days after he touted his Catholic faith during the State of the State address

    Your advocacy of extreme abortion legislation is completely contrary to the teachings of our pope and our Church," Albany Bishop Rev. Edward B. Scharfenberger wrote in an open letter in the Evangelist on Saturday. "I shudder to think of the consequences this law will wreak. You have already uttered harsh threats about the welcome you think pro-lifers are not entitled to in our state. Now you are demonstrating that you mean to write your warning into law. Will being pro-life one day be a hate crime in the State of New York?"

    Under the Reproductive Health Act, non-doctors are now allowed to conduct abortions and the procedure could be done until the mother's due date if the woman's health is endangered or if the fetus is not viable. The previous law only allowed abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy if a woman's life was at risk.

    Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, along with the Catholic Bishops in the state signed a letter condemning the bill, saying "our beloved state has become a more dangerous one for women and their unborn babies."

    "Our governor and legislative leaders hail this new abortion law as progress. This is not progress," the bishops wrote. "Progress will be achieved when our laws and our culture once again value and respect each unrepeatable gift of human life, from the first moment of creation to natural death."

    Thomas Peters, the @AmericanPapist on Twitter, condemned Cuomo, saying he should be excommunicated for his pro-abortion actions, pointing to the One World Trade Center's pink spire.

    "Now it looks just like the needle that is used to supply the lethal injection to the living unborn child," Peters wrote.

    ======================

    The bit above about "the procedure could be done until the mother's due date if the woman's health is endangered or if the fetus is not viable." is a joke.

    If the woman's life is at risk and the baby is more than 24 weeks old, they could just deliver the baby and it would survive instead of aborting it. They would have to deliver it after aborting it anyway, so to claim that they had to abort it to save the woman's life at that point would be a lie.

    This law is pure evil and legalized murder. The abortionist doesn't even have to be a doctor!

    No doubt, however, we have one particular Twebber who will be disappointed they didn't go far enough.

    We've lived with this in Canada for at least 3 decades.

    It's vile beyond words.

    Do they think they are better than the ancient peoples who abandoned their newborns to die? Do they really believe that the personhood fairy actually sprinkles newborns with fairy dust to turn them into persons?

    Given the disproportionate impact on minorities, eugenicist Margaret Sanger is smiling in her grave.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    And I don't think this would please the ultimate authority figure either! He cares very much about the little children!

    As far as I can tell, not a single abortion supporter has ever actually been the victim of abortion.

    Disgusting. May their black souls get what they deserve.

    Now, now, God would want the wicked to repent and turn to Him for salvation. Is it weird I cry out to the Lord on behalf of the weak and helpless? Well, someone has to speak up for those who can't speak for themselves! To champion the cause of the oppressed! Except I can't actually do anything except pray and give a little money....
