I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I believe it’s the most barbaric abortion law that’s ever been passed. It allows for infanticide in my view.

Today on the broadcast, we discussed a new law just signed by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo that essentially legalizes abortion all the way up to the moment of birth and removes any criminal legal protections under New York law for unborn babies.

Last week Gov. Cuomo, with Roe v. Wade attorney Sarah Waddington at his side, signed the so-called Reproductive Health Act into state law, legalizing abortion at any stage of pregnancy. It’s the most expansive late term abortion bill we’ve seen at the state level.

Afterwards, the Governor ordered One World Trade Center and other New York landmarks to be lit up pink in a sick celebration of the expansive abortion law.

Abortion advocates also celebrated. Planned Parenthood tweeted out “This. Is Huge.”

The law states that an abortion can be performed after 24 weeks if the mother’s life or health are in danger. The problem is, the New York law doesn’t actually make any effort to define the word “health.”

It’s completely up to the doctor and the mother – and honestly, maybe not even the doctor – to decide if the baby should be born or not. If the mother decides she no longer wants to have her child, even in her 8th or 9th month of pregnancy – a point where we know these babies feel pain – the baby could be aborted without consequence.

The law DOESN’T EVEN REQUIRE A DOCTOR TO PERFORM THE ABORTION. Under the new law, anyone can perform an abortion at any point: nurse practitioners, midwives, maybe even an expectant mother herself.

This does not promote anyone’s safety; this promotes abortion on demand, for any reason.

This is not an advance in our civilization. It’s a huge step back to a darker time. It’s the ultimate step toward dehumanizing babies in the womb in order to kill them. Horrific is the only word to describe it.

As we discussed on the program today, we are going to leave no stone unturned in an effort to limit and defeat this law. We’re preparing freedom of information act records requests to the state of New York, looking for legal avenues to challenge this law, and fighting to ensure pro-life doctors are protected from being forced to violate their conscience.
