An abortion battle could be brewing in Albany, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to propose a major change to abortion laws in New York State.
CBS 2 has learned that Cuomo will introduce a bill on Tuesday that would allow abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy to protect a womans health. The bill would fall in line with federal law.
Currently, New York State only allows late-term abortions if a womans life is at risk.
Planned Parenthood outlined a 2009 bill with reportedly similar goals. The 2009 Reproductive Health Act would guarantee a woman can make her own personal, private health care decisions, especially when her health is endangered, as well as treat abortion as a public health issue rather than a potential crime, and guarantee New Yorkers right to receive or refuse contraception as they see fit.
Current New York law compounds that tragedy when it happens late in pregnancy by making it a potential crime to provide an abortion to protect her health, Planned Parenthood said. The Reproductive Health Act will ensure she can get the safe, legal abortion care she needs.
The current law is not enforced, because it is superseded by federal rulings on late-term abortions, according to a New York Times report.
Cuomo is evil. He has sold his soul for a few votes.
Maybe they can bring Gosnell to NY and make him the state surgeon general.
Oh oh, it looks like someone is planning a 2016 presidential run. Gotta get out early and secure that kook lefty base. Pius Jr. Vs Biden Vs Clinton will make for a three ring circus in the primaries.
Hell just make sex with minors legal too.
Between cutting them up, filling them full of pills, and farming them out to homos, there isnt much doubt that the left really doesnt think all that much about children.
Fine. Let the females abort at 24 weeks with the condition that the sperm donor have his dingaling removed at the same time.
At one time I believed in him as one to finally do something about rogue Catholic pols. But I have lost all confidence in him. Like many "hats" he is no more than a religious politician. That's why many Catholic institutions in NY are paying for contraception and abortion "under protest". Yeah...right.
Kill them while they are defenseless is the democrat motto.
If they wait, they might arm themselves and Cuomo’s mafia would have to waste time eliminating them.
Evil Eyes Cuomo. His nickname in New York. He looks (and now acts) like Ted Bundy.
He won't. Dolan is a member of the American Patriotic Church. For an explanation of just what the APC is see here.
I’m surprised you didn’t see through that glad-handing, fake bonhomie pol - I saw it the moment he got the job. Oh, how I miss Cardinal O’Connor...long gone and still missed.
Beat me to it. They are murderers.
Let’s be serious.
The Catholic Church won’t excommunicate any politician. Call Morty and make book on it.
one can have hope...but no longer in this one.
and yes...I miss the good Cardinal as well.
I hate agreeing with the late Fr. Andrew Greeley, but this is one more in a long line of examples of the progeny of Irish immigrants’ choosing the rat party over Catholicism. As a matter of fact, Greeley’s only error was in failing to recognize the same weakness in Italian immigrants. Not all Irish & Italians, of course, but a significant majority.
