Abortion Ghouls Of New York

Abortion Ghouls Of New York

On Tuesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gleefully (there really is no other word for it) signed a bill legalizing abortion at all stages of pregnancy in New York state. Yes, even when a baby is past the point of viability. And the ghouls howled and rejoiced.

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.

New York was the first state to legalize abortion in 1970. Cuomo directed the 408-foot spire on the One World Trade Center, the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, the Kosciuszko Bridge, and the Alfred E. Smith Building in Albany to be lit pink to “celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”

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.

Notice that the law now says if a woman’s “health” is endangered, not her life. A slippery slope, indeed.

And yes, Cuomo ordered buildings to be lit up pink. (Are we gender stereotyping, Governor? Hmmmmm?)


As many on social media pointed out, there is something deeply offensive and loathsome about seeing One World Trade Center – which was built next to the footprints of buildings where thousands were killed – lit up to celebrate the death of thousands of future “undesirables.”

Even the Catholic Church made a token protest to Governor Cuomo, who proclaims to be a Catholic.

“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?”

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.”

I call it a token protest because unless Cuomo suffers a real consequence – like being denied communion, or excommunication from the church – then why should he bother to heed the faith that he proclaims to participate in?

However, others in New York actually ARE heeding their faith – and putting it into practice.

The book store is closed today. It is a day of mourning in New York. In honor of the thousands of babies that will die…

And Jon Speed put up a sign on the door as well.


Now THERE is someone of true conscience who chose to make a profound and personal stand. Andrew Cuomo may not care two bits about a small bookstore owner, but others were watching and expressing their support – and flooding his website with online orders.

How interesting that a bookstore owner has more conviction of faith to make a protest – closing his store and refusing to collect sales taxes for a day – than the entire Catholic infrastructure of New York.

While we continue to march and get wins in legal cases, never forget that the ghouls on the other side are eagerly waiting to consume and profit by the deaths of innocents. Governor Cuomo says he is “anti-death penalty.” Where there is a separate body, distinctly individual DNA, a beating heart, and cellular growth, there is LIFE, Governor. You are very much pro-death penalty – but only for those who are deemed “unworthy” and “subhuman” and are innocent of any crime except having the audacity to exist. That might sound familiar, Governor. Think about it.

    As someone who was raised Catholic and spent 8 years in Catholic school, I have to agree Deanna, the current church has not only put a straight up socialist in charge, they have completely lost whatever spine they had. You are 100% correct that instead of mealy-mouthed letters, they should excommunicate Cuomo, and all like him, but they never will. This is for two reasons.. 1. With a socialist leader, Cuomo is their kind of guy in pretty much everything but this, and they’re willing to sacrifice thousands if not millions of babies to advance socialism, 2. Like in all other cases, FOLLOW THE MONEY!! The Catholic Church is rolling in money, much of it from these phony christian democrats in New York, and they will do NOTHING to jeopardize that! 3. they are all about preserving their power, and have been for quite a while unfortunately. From the Inquisition, to failing to protect Jews from the Nazis in WWII, when faced with the choice between truly living up to the teachings of Christ, or protecting their power, they make the same choice every time.
    I’m sure that Christ weeps to see what’s become of the Church that he inspired.

    “a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values”

    What? Killing the unborn and viable and harassing school children and demanding their deaths? Those are wonderful examples of ”values”. I am somehow reminded of Dr Mengele.

    the older the fetus, the ore ‘harvestable’ the organs
    also, consider which part of the population will be whittled down

      • Scott says:

        Planned parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger with the express intent of decreasing the number of blacks. She was as racist as they come! No surprise that she’s a hero of the left…

        • Jim says:

          Is it true that Sanger believed in and practised eugenics? She started ”operating” at a time when eugenics was gaining support.

          • Scott says:

            Yep, that was her motivation, capitalizing on the greed and self interest of certain segments of the population, not realizing they were marching themselves to the gas chambers… and if you look at the platform of US ” progressives” in the 20’s-30’s, you’ll see that much of it, especially the eugenics portion, you’ll find that Hitler took a great interest, and ran with the ideas to near “perfection” … and they call US Nazis….

            • Jim says:

              Thanks Scott. I was aware that Lewis Terman from Stanford – he who helped develop the Stanford-Binet psychometric test – was a supporter of eugenics around that time. As you mentioned good old AH was a devotee of eugenics. The effects of eugenics lasted for decades and sterilisation was on the statutes in a number of countries around the world. So what do we call abortion of viable near-term or even ”term” foetuses? At what point does it become eugenics by stealth?

              • Scott says:

                My guess is that they’ll avoid that label because it’s the “mother” that’s deciding to kill the child, it’s not being done against her will.

  • Joe R. says:

    Play NY / NYC out to a little “Miami 2017”.

    Abortion ain’t the only problem with these monsters.

    Enforce The Communist Control Act of 1954 (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) NOW!

  • Mrph. “Whatever the Federal Government may do.” Sorry, Generalissimo Cuomo, but you don’t have a leg to stand on there.

    If SCOTUS uses the proper definition, NO abortion is legal; it is murder. (The proper definition is “chromosomally complete”; everything after that point is a developmental stage, from the first division right through to final senescence. That applies to ALL life forms, not just humans.) Accident or defect may cut that development short at any time before the “natural” death of the organism, but any human intervention to cut it short in humans is (at best) manslaughter.

    Once the proper definition is in place, one of the favorite Amendments of the Statist Left comes into play. “Equal protection of the law” demands that the deliberate killing of a one week old blastocyst is the equivalent of killing a sixty year old adult. Same principle as “homosexual marriage is not marriage if it is not recognized in all States.”

    All Catholic Dioceses should immediately cancel all church and school related trips to New York State.

    When I was young, I read the Old Testament and I wondered…how could people throw their babies and children into the fire?

    Now I see.

  • JEFF says:

    When the reason give. Is health of the mother, in nearly every case it will be mental health as determined by a medical Dr, not a psychiatrist or psychologist. In the case of NY, I don’t know if there is any regulation requiring anyone to keep track of the reason and who determined it.
