To the sound of supporters chanting “free abortion on demand, we can do it, yes we can,” the New York legislature just passed the terribly named “Reproductive Health Act.” It’s the most radically pro-abortion state-level initiative in recent memory.
The new law has nothing to do with health, and everything to do with death. It removes abortion from the criminal code and makes it legal all the way up to birth, allowing all doctors and midwives to kill unborn babies, no questions asked.
Jubilation followed. And then, Governor Andrew Cuomo lit up One World Trade Center in pink to celebrate.
Seventy-five percent of Americans want restrictions on late-term abortions, but extremists no longer are about “safe, legal, and rare.” The unfettered taking of unborn lives is celebrated.
Take note. The pro-choice movement just revealed its true face. It’s not about choice. It’s about glorifying, even idolizing, death as the path to a good life, with cult-like glee. Lord have mercy.
