Skip to comments.NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo pushes bill allowing abortions after 24 weeks
Posted on 01/20/2013 5:19:54 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made headlines last week by cramming a gun law through the state legislature that is so restrictive that it limits the amount of ammunition members of law enforcement can carry on the job. Clearly, though, New Yorkers aint seen nothing yet. Cuomos next act, addressed in a news conference on Saturday pushing through the 6-year-old Reproductive Health Care bill if accomplished, will represent the biggest assault on the liberties of residents conceivably in the Empire States 236-year history.
The National Catholic Register (h/t Weasel Zippers) notes that the bill has become a facet of the governors own 10-point womens equality agenda, which includes a raise in the minimum wage, tougher anti-housing discrimination laws and measures against domestic violence and sex-trafficking.
The most stunning part of the legislation, however, is its removal of criminal penalties for abortions after 24 weeks by adding a broad health exception. Currently, late-term abortions are allowable when carrying the fetus to term poses a danger to the mothers life.
The article quotes Chris Slattery, director of the pro-life Expectant Mother Care (EMC) pregnancy centers in New York City, who says, the new law will make the city the late-term abortion capital of the world...

Renounced? Did they tar and feather him too?
Let me clue you in my Friend.
Nobody could have beaten Obama. We are outnumbered and unlike the good old days of Jimmy Carter, the “takers” aren’t suffering, they are living the life of Riley.
Reagan couldn’t have beaten Obama. The Demographics, the Illegal Alien and Community Organizing Voter Fraud, the Media and the successful use of Social Networking going after the Youth Vote by the Left have sealed our fate.
As far as the future of the Republican Party goes, I have no idea where it will end up. I am all for a Conservative Resurgence, but the reality of the day will require a massive Societal upheaval to steer the Nation to the Right.
I’m not going to debate your Romney fixation. To use the last Obama slogan, FORWARD, it’s the only course because Romney, just as McCain in 2008, is just another Speed Bump on the road to Tyranny.
Now we are faced with a strong possibility that something’s got to give. The string on the Bow is stretched to its limit and the fingers are trembling, IMHO of course.
2012 was an easy win for the republicans, but you guys managed to choose a radical, pro-abortion liberal, a failed politician who only won a single election in 20 years, who did so poorly in that job that he was forced to end his plan for reelection and who left office with a damaged state party, lost the seat to the democrats, and finished with a 34% approval rating.
Here you are now, after snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against Jimmy Carter II, acting like the injured party, because someone is pointing out that the republican presidential candidate ran on the same outrageous pro-abortion plan that this thread is about.
Really? You guys were running PRO-CHOICE ADS IN OHIO, and now you want to claim that even Ronald Reagan couldn’t have won this election against Carter’s second term?
You guys are just flat out nuts.
There’s also a provision to allow abortions to be performed by people other than doctors.
“Highway to hell”
Well if the Burgermeister wants to go there, by all means stand clear of him.
So, take away guns to protect children.
But kill any babies you don’t want.
What is wrong with me that I don’t get it?
The butcher wants to kill the innocent unborn, but at the same time, wants to take away the people’s right to defend themselves against agressors. Typical liberal.
Gee Ansel, who are these “you guys” you bring into the Conversation?
I don’t know of ONE FReeper that voted for Romney in the Primary, but I sure know of many that didn’t Vote for Romney in the General against Lord Obama.
You know, the “there isn’t a dimes worth of difference between the two” crowd. It would be laughable if it didn’t involve the end of the Republic.
Like many before the Election, I thought there was a good chance that we would beat Obama. At the very least, I thought we would get the Senate back.
Didn’t happen and here we are. The King of Hopey Dopey Changey Forward is being Emaculated today, so your Romney sucks keystrokes are just a waste of time.
BTW - If your new game is to blame people here who Voted for their own Candidates in the Primaries and faced the reality of their preferences not getting the nomination, good try.
There are no YOU GUYS Posting here, so go over to Koz or DU to gloat abut the Republicans losing. It is really getting stale.
Then you don't read FR, and haven't noticed the large numbers of people promotion Romney for the last SEVEN years here, look at your posts on this thread to see how loyal his followers are, (some of you).
Evidently you missed all the banned accounts, and JR's having to call a truce when Romney became the nominee, in other words, you are just lying about not knowing of any freeper support for Romney in the years of primaries.
Here you are right now, still fighting tooth and nail for Romney and trying to rewrite his predictable loss, even using Reagan to protect Romney's reputation and influence in the GOP.
Even after this disaster of an election, you STILL don't want anything negative about the candidate to get out, in this case his pro-abortion views which match the topic of this thread.

Seriously, what the heck are you talking about? I’m lying?
Why would I lie? I don’t know of any FReepers that Voted for Romney in the Primaries, if you do, list them for us.
You had better get a grip and quit calling people LIARS. I Voted for Newt in the Primary and I Voted for the Party Nominee, which happened to be Romney, in the General. In other words, I followed the Levin Doctrine and wonder of wonders, JimRob did the same.
As far as your second paragraph goes, I am thinking that you have a serious imagination issue or you are projecting your paranoia on to me. I am not fighting “tooth and nail” to protect anyone.
BTW -If you think Romney still has influence over the Party after losing to Obozo, you are way out there in Bizarro Land. Republicans eat their own, or haven’t you noticed?
My entire point to you is that the Election is over, move on and stop this incessant nagging (and attacking other FReepers) about what might have been. Worry about the next four years, not what happened last November.
And do not ever call me a LIAR again, unless you have some ironclad proof of my supposed deception, which you do not. Your “in other words” crap is just something you include to cover your A$$ and everyone reading your Post knows it.
You are pushing the envelope my FRiend. We are done.
So you think that all those banned romneybot freepers and the romneybot freepers that the truce was called about, and who were allowed back onto FR after Romney won the nomination, did not vote for their candidate in the primary that they were fighting to get us to vote for Romney in, the very reason that many of them were banned?
Yeah, I think you are lying about thinking that.
What argument did you think that the pro-Romney and the anti-Romney freepers were having for 7 years, and through two presidential primaries?
On many occasions I challenged Posters to name those who they accused of supporting Romney during the Primaries. I do not recall any names being listed, including my own.
During the Primary Elections, I Posted my support of the Levin Doctrine on numerous occasions, and I am sure that you and I have sparred about that one time or another.
I will say again that at this point in time it really makes no difference. We are facing an enemy that has no fear in implementing his “vision” for the Country that is contrary to the belief system of every Member on this Site.
Now, since I don't take kindly to anyone questioning my character and sincerity by publicly calling me a Liar, I will request that you no longer Post to me. We obviously have differing opinions that will never be resolved.
Good night and as a fellow FReeper I wish you well.
There was much Romney support here during the primary, and you know it.
Yes you are a lying about not seeing the years of Romney support here, the bannings of those supporters, the truce that was called on freerepublic for those Romney supporters, and even the reinstatement of those Romney supporters after the primary was officially won by Romney.
You have made this same ridiculous claim back in June, immediately after Romney won the nomination.
Romneybots? zottings of Romneybots for for being overly aggressive in promotion Romney in the primaries? A truce for those who having supporting Romney in the primaries? Reinstatement of freepers who supported Romney in the primaries? More than a half decade of bloodshed between conservatives and Romney primary supporters on freerepublic, and you want to pretend that you never knew anything about that.
You do that on a thread where yet again you are defending Romney and trying stop anything negative about him being discussed or pointed out.
It makes all the difference in the world that we never make such a bizarre disaster again, as picking a man who couldn’t even beat a Jimmy Carter and who was so far left, and so freakish.
Thank you for honoring my request.
Oh I’m sorry, that would have required some class, which apparently you are lacking.
Good night and goodbye Ansel12.
It isn’t my job to collect a list of romneybots and ping them to join you in your pretense that they never existed, and were never banned, and were never granted a truce, and were never even allowed back on to FR.
You are a lying about not seeing the years of Romney support here, the bannings of those supporters, the truce that was called on freerepublic for those Romney supporters, and even the reinstatement of those Romney supporters after the primary was officially won by Romney.
