Cuomo To Propose Bill To Match Federal Law Allowing For Abortions After 24 Weeks Of Pregnancy
CBS News ^ | June 3, 2013 11:25

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 woman’s health. The bill would fall in line with federal law.

Currently, New York State only allows late-term abortions if a woman’s 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The current law is not enforced, because it is superseded by federal rulings on late-term abortions, according to a New York Times report.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.

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.

Very disappointing.

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.

Let’s be serious.

The Catholic Church won’t excommunicate any politician. Call Morty and make book on it.

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.

In 2000 my first child arrived at 24 weeks and survived one hour. She was fully formed, a complete and total human baby girl. Even 13 years ago, many babies that age were able to be saved. I can only imagine the advances made since then. That's why I can't comprehend, under any circumstances, an abortion being considered "the only option." At 24+ weeks, it is outright, plain and simple murder.

If they live, there’s a risk they may grow up to vote Republican.

If they’re dead, they’re guaranteed to vote Democrat.

The Roman Catholic hierarchy in the northeast has had a big huge love affair with the DEMS. Not all, but many. They sucked up to the corrupt abortionist Kennedy’s. Look at the funeral they gave to that disgrace Teddy. And where is that political animal Cardinal Law these days. IMO, he should be in jail.

My twin nephews were born at 23 weeks. Through the wonders of modern medicine, they are perfectly healthy little boys now.

Based on that observation, I can attest that a 24 week old has completely formed limbs, a fully formed brain, his/her organs are almost 100% formed, they have hair on their head...and one of them was able to survive outside the womb with very little medical assistance. In short, they are human in every way.

In fact, they are so human, that the doctors who abort them have to subject them to cruel and painful neck stabbings to make them stop breathing, as they exit the mother.

I want to throw up.

Exactly...if the the mother’s health is in so much danger, put mom and child in the hospital for continuous observation. Every day they can delay birth helps survival chances...and if it gets to the point where the mother is in danger of death, induce labor, and take the baby to the NICU.

Cuomo is a Democrat. To Democrats every live birth is a failure of cosmic proportions.
