It's unthinkable what has just happened in our nation. New York, one of the leading states in our nation's culture, has just defied God and President Trump in the most gruesome and heartless abortion bill yet passed in America.
Governor Andrew Cuomo, a professing Catholic, just pressured his state into passing the Reproductive Health Act (he had threatened not to approve his state's budget unless it was passed) which lets any doctor perform an abortion on any baby up to his or her birthday.
Basically, it's open season on all unwanted babies in New York.
A New York bishop called into question Cuomo's faith, who had recently cited his Catholic faith and said the people should stand with Pope Francis, shares the Christian Post. “Removing protection for an infant accidentally born alive during an abortion is abject cruelty, something most people of conscience would deem inhumane for even a dog or cat. Finally, allowing late-term abortions is nothing less than a license to kill a pre-born child at will. It is very difficult to understand how you can align yourself with Pope Francis and so vehemently advocate such profoundly destructive legislation,” said Rev. Edward B. Scharfenberger, who ministers in Albany.
Cuomo sees the move as a sign of his power against Trump, whom liberals fear will overturn Roe v. Wade. "Today I signed the #ReproductiveHealthAct — codifying Roe v. Wade into state law and protecting women's reproductive rights no matter what the federal government does. This is a victory for all New Yorkers," he tweeted with pride.
Unfortunately, it's not at all a victory for women or babies. “Contrary to what its proponents say, the RHA goes far beyond Roe v. Wade in its aggressive extremism. Granting nondoctors permission to perform abortions does nothing to advance the security and health of women. Condoning coerced or involuntary abortions by repealing criminal sanctions even in cases where a perpetrator seeks to make his partner ‘un-pregnant’ through an act of physical violence does not represent any kind of progress in the choice, safety or health of women,” wrote the bishop in a powerful open letter.
Neither is it truly a victory for Cuomo. By fighting for this brutal murder law, Cuomo has just put the blood of countless babies on his hands. The Bible says "The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it" (Psalm 24:1). All who live in it includes the living babies growing in their mother's wombs, where thy are meant to be safe. So by enacting this vicious law, Cuomo is taking God's babies and killing them.
Conservative blogger Matt Walsh (also Catholic) called for Cuomo to be excommunicated. "Hi, @CardinalDolan. The governor of your state is an alleged Catholic. He just legalized the murder of fully developed infants. Are you going to excommunicate him, as is your obligation, or are you concerned with making sure you still get invitations to the cocktail parties?" tweeted Walsh.
"In a late term abortion (which NY just legalized) the baby is killed and then delivery is induced. Think about that. They're delivering the child anyway. Why kill him ahead of time? Why not deliver him alive and put him up for adoption? Why does he need to come out dead?" he also tweeted.
As for us, we are horrified. How could our nation do this? What will God think? We pray that babies are spared and our nation repents. What do you think of this heinous new law? Will you post a prayer in the comments? Thank you so much.
