In a despicable but un-shocking move, New York City is about to become the first city in the nation to pay for abortions for low-income women under the guise of ‘health care’:
YAHOO NEWS – Tucked away in a $92.5 billion budget, agreed to with a handshake deal between Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson on Friday, was an agreement to make New York City the first city in the country to fund abortion services.
The New York Abortion Access Fund will provide $250,000 from the budget to help low-income citizens access abortion services.
The funding was championed by the council’s Women’s Caucus, led by co-chairs Margaret Chin and Carlina Rivera.
“Before Roe v Wade, NYC was a haven for women who wanted the freedom to choose,” Rivera wrote on Twitter. “It’s time for our City to be that beacon for the country once again.”
The council is required to vote on the budget before July 1, but passage is expected as a formality.
“This was an initiative coming out of the council, but I certainly support it,” De Blasio said at a press conference Friday. “We understand that there are women who need help and are having trouble getting the help they need. And the city had an opportunity here to step up.”
“I am proud that we are doing this,” Johnson said Friday. “This is to help low-income women in New York City who have faced barriers to access to health care, get the care that they need and that they deserve.
“And what typically happens when abortion care is restricted across the country, wealthier women still can get abortions because they can fly to places and drive across state lines to get abortions. But what happens is low-income women, predominately women of color, are the ones that are locked out of the health care system and aren’t able to have abortion access.”
There is nothing about these abortions that makes them ‘health care’ and it’s disgusting that these city leaders would even suggest such a move. This is about convenience, about getting rid of the consequences of pre-marital sex so that women can be as promiscuous as they want. This is about the murder of an innocent life because it’s, sadly, unwanted.
But above all it’s a fight against God himself, who designed this life-giving process with moral safeguards that are now cast aside in favor of hedonistic sexual pleasures. This is among the worst examples of the sin in the garden of Eden, where Adam and Even exalted themselves over the will of God, casting aside His moral law in order to try and become gods themselves. They were deceived and thus brought sin and death in the world and now we see it play out in this vile and vicious manner.
