New York Senate Passes Bill Legalizing Late Term Abortions

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yesterday, the New York Senate passed an atrocious bill that would legalize aborting babies clear up to birth for basically any reason. The bill passed on a vote of 38 in favor to 24 against.

Abortion activists have been pushing the bill for more than a decade in New York, but their efforts up until this point have been unsuccessful. However, since the November election, Democrats are now in control of both houses of Congress.

The legislation is even more far reaching and dangerous than Roe v. Wade. The would allow late term abortions and would even allow people who are not doctors to perform them. Worse yet, the bill attempts to give the appearance of limiting late term abortions, but includes a very broad “health” exception for abortions after 24 weeks. The exception would allow women to have an abortion for up to nine months of pregnancy for “age, economic, social and emotional factors, rather than the biological definition of ‘health’ that normally comes to mind,” according to New York Right to Life.

Governor Andrew Cuomo, himself a pro abortion activist, supports the bill, and has even threatened to hold up the budget until the bill is passed. The bill is titled the Reproductive Health Act and attempts to redefine “a human being who has been born and is alive,” and describes abortion as a “fundamental right.”

The bill will open the door for all kinds of manipulations and emotional, psychological, and physical abuse of women. If the bill becomes law, home abortions could become much more common. Additionally, abusive partners or parents would no longer receive legal repercussions for harming a woman’s preborn child.

Additionally, New York State Right to Life predicted that the bill will lead to pro life peoples’ suppression of rights and free speech.

“In early December, a resident of Saratoga County was arrested for punching the stomach of a woman who was 26 weeks pregnant in an attempt to cause a miscarriage. The man was charged with abortion in the second degree, but under the RHA, the attacker would not have been charged with a felony,” Catholic News Service reports.

  4. We give animals a better chance for life at the no kill pounds.
    Why not pay women a one time fee at delivery for their baby. Amount to be decided and equal dollar amount for each baby. The mother agrees to a weekly drug test. No claim to the baby after delivery.

  5. I have never seeing so much abomination by the hand of men like this one. How could be possible with all the unreasonable excuses to kill a nine month baby in the womb of the woman.? Of course, if they baby comes out before the procedure can be performed will be a monstruosity to kill the baby and is consider murder. I don’t see the difference at all. The baby is already well developed and you are saying that could be assesinated in the womb and is not consider a murder? What kind of beast we are dealing right now. The doctor and the 9 month pregnant woman decided to commit murder. And don’t tell me your sorry excuses why is okey to kill a nine month old baby in the womb of a woman. Shame to everyone who decides to approve a crime like this one . I hope that the justice of men can bring back the needed Law and Order for this state. And justice for the 9 month baby who was killed in the womb before comes out,; the hands of those doctors always will carry baby bloods in their hands …and the disgraceful woman should never be a mom

  7. I just cannot believe this is happening. What do the people of upstate New York say? I am hoping the courts will strike this down as it borders on partial birth abortion since it can be done up until her due date. She could kill a fully developed baby days before it is due but has not come through the birth canal. Also, why are they for this. I thought the abortionists were concerned about the health of the mother. anyone can perform the procedure.

  8. I’m beyond mortified… I have never been so angry and disgusted in my life. I’m five and a half months pregnant!!!! I hope everyone that is ok with that burns in hell! Guess what if someone tried to hit me in the stomach to kill my unborn child, that would be the last thing they ever did. What the hell is going on with people in this world? Why would it ever be ok to kill a full term baby… I’m in so much anguish because of this… Not ever would I think people could do such a tragic thing as to kill an innocent baby. Murderers!!!

  9. In no state is a nine month abortion legal. Only 1.3% of abortions are performed after 21 weeks. Each of the 50 states has their own laws, true, however, not a single one of them allows late term abortions because the pregnant woman just wants to. I respect all the opinions and appreciate the desire to prevent murdering of a child, but get the facts. Read the bill.
    In the entire world, three countries allow late term abortions for any reason or no reason. China and Canada are two if them. There are many reasons women need to have access to safe abortions. There was an article in the New Yorker that discusses briefly some of the reasons. Many of them make sense., in my opinion.

  10. I am ashamed of those who would make this legal. An innocent life condemned to death for the convenience of all involved. Though not fault of its own. It get punished with a death sentence for the mistakes of adults. We should not be allowing this. I agree with abortion on conditions beyond ones control Such as rape, still baby, mothers life, a very severe baby who cannot live. And only in the first month of pregnancy. And then if they can feel pain should be given something that will not let them feel the pain. Shame on all of you. U really need to talk with your Maker. Women should be given all the choses and option there is out there. Abortion for just about any reason is wrong.

  12. Life starts at conception. Murder at any trimester is murder. The blood is on the hands of both parties. Judgement is coming! Each baby is fearfully and wonderfully created by God himself. He has formed His children in the womb, where it is safe and each member is written in the Book. . .Oh, Jesus, Come quickly! Sad. I will always fight for the babies that were created by the Hand of our Loving God! We live in a wicked nation when babies are murdered for no reason but selfishness. ..
