Governor Andrew Cuomo led the state of New York in pagan-style worship of the gods of mass death Wednesday, proclaiming the worthiness of modern medical science to destroy humans in the womb even during the process of birth.
The New York state law named falsely the Reproductive Health Act allows the slaughter of in-utero people even in the process of birth as long as the umbilical chord is still attached.
If an abortionist, (not necessarily a medical doctor, any abortionist will do) signs off for a health related reason, even a mental health reason, they can lance the baby to death – as he or she squirms for life – and kill it.
And to celebrate the achievement of pagan-style holocaust now codified into law for the state of New York, Cuomo had the landmarks of the state of New York lit up and decorated pink.
Gloating in the moment, Cuomo proclaimed the Act, “A historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values,” he said.
“In the face of a federal government intent on rolling back Roe v. Wade and women’s reproductive rights, I promised that we would enact this critical legislation within the first 30 days of the new session, and we got it done.”
Included among the landmarks decorated for a sign of defiance against life principles and the will of God were the One World Trade Center tower and bridges including Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge that spans the Hudson River.
“I am directing that New York’s landmarks be lit in pink to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow,” Cuomo said.
Not everyone agreed with the state of New York and its deeply established liberal powers.
Catholic lay leaders called on Cardinal Timothy Dolan to excommunicate Gov. Andrew Cuomo for signing the law. Their demand follows up an open letter in which New York’s Catholic bishops decried the law, rejecting Cuomo’s claim that it is progress.
Prominent Catholic Laymen, author John Zmirak and editor of First Things magazine Matthew Schmitz argued the bishops’ letter didn’t go far enough – Cuomo should be denied communion also.
Bookstore owner Jon Speed placed a sign in the window of his store in Syracuse, and closed Wednesday, calling it a day of mourning.
“We will not collect sales tax today for a tyrannical government that murders babies,” the sign read. “We will resume regular business tomorrow, collecting tax under duress. End Abortion Now.”
Responses went national, as the word spread on social media. In response to Speed’s action, Dave Frahm of Colorado Springs, Co., said that Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019, would be a date which will live in infamy.
This new law is evidence of a lack of any moral code
“A very sad day, it reflects the deep sickness that now characterizes much of American society,” Frahm said. “It is the day that a New York politician passed into law a bill that children still in their mother’s womb can be ripped into pieces at any point up to birth.”
Speed said he sensed a compelling anxiety to at least do something. “I obviously can’t stop paying sales tax . . . So I thought, well, I’ll put a sign up on the front window of the store and say we’re closed and express our thoughts on it, just so we can make a statement.”
National commentators are analyzing further ramifications of the state law. It further protects abortionists from criminal prosecution because of botched abortions and allows practitioners of abortions beyond certified medical doctors.
It places New York in a solid stance as pro-abortion regardless of any Supreme Court decision regarding abortion, if Roe-v-Wade is overturned.
Pro-life pundits noted that ramifications include new serious dangers to women’s lives and rights because of eliminating protections against illegal abortion practitioners – opening the door for abuses.
Frahm concluded the law stakes a claim that plunges the state and the whole nation deeper into a darkness that will be ever more difficult to rise from.
“Many have no fear of God . . . no reverence for Him,” he said. “They have no desire to honor and please Him. But apart from that, they lack any sense of simple human morality. This new law is evidence of a lack of any moral code.”
