Posted on 06/19/2013 8:50:23 PM PDT by Morgana
Governor Cuomo keeps wrongly insisting that the abortion provision of his so-called Womens Equality Act aligns with federal law.
The amended bill Cuomo introduced yesterday contains the same problems as his first attempt. Americans United for Life has repeatedly explained that the bills reference to the 1973 case Roe v. Wade, and Roe alone, pointedly ignores important cases which have modified the controversial decision in significant ways.
But Cuomo does not need to take AULs word for it. Representative Jerry Nadler, a liberal Democrat representing New Yorks 10th congressional district, recently made the same point during a committee mark-up of a federal bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks.
In Rep. Nadler words, Since Roe and Doe the Court has narrowed the constitutional protections available to women to protect their right to choose. Specifically, Rep. Nadler noted that the 1992 Supreme Court case Planned Parenthood v. Casey created an undue burden standard of review for abortion-related legislation.

The Casey opinion held that, by applying a harsh strict scrutiny analysis, cases following Roe did not give sufficient weight to the states interest in regulating abortion to protect the health of the woman and life of the unborn. By reverting to Roe, the Cuomo bill signals an intention to move away from federal law and use strict scrutiny to invalidate any common-sense regulations on abortion that currently exist or are proposed in the future.
Rep. Nadlers quip so thats the law, whether some people like it or not, was meant to admonish Republicans on the committee who voiced disagreement with the U.S. Supreme Courts abortion doctrine. But his commentary is one that Governor Cuomo should heed. Codifying Roe is not the same as aligning with federal law. To borrow a phrase from Rep. Nadler this is true whether Governor Cuomo likes it or not.
In order to make abortion easier for women, they are really making abortion easier for men to escape responsibility.
Why not just rip their uteruses out? That way they’ll be truly “equal” because they will never have to worry about getting punished with a baby.
Cuomo is a Kenite.
I can see Cuomo’s life in the hereafter...

Real radical abortion pill: cyanide.
Womens Equality Act
Why would women lower themselves to become equal with men? One would think they could do so much better than men.
