This really disgusts me. Cuomo is pushing for a bill that allows late-term abortions if the pregnancy poses a risk to the mother or if in cases where the fetus is not considered viable. We all know that a ‘risk’ to the mother or a ‘viable fetus’ can mean anything and probably will mean anything to people who just want to have an abortion, especially with agreeable doctors.
This is an assault on the unborn in the most brutal form. How barbaric do we want to be?
WASHINGTON TIMES – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, is trying to pass a bill giving women the right to have late-term abortions in pregnancies that pose a risk for the mother, or in cases where the fetus is not considered viable.
Current New York law only gives women access to late-term abortions — those that take place after 24 weeks of pregnancy — in cases that threaten the mother’s life, according to a report in Newsmax.
Under Mr. Cuomo’s provision, doctors aren’t the only ones who could perform the late-term procedure. Licensed health-care practitioners could, too, according to Newsmax.
Its chances for passage are unclear.
Republican Assemblyman Dean Skelos said the new law is not needed because abortion is already legal, and late-term abortion is “just wrong,” he said, according to Newsmax.
“You could have an abortion up until the day the child would be born, and that’s just wrong,” he said, according to Newsmax.
