New York and Cuomo Teeter on the Brink of More Evil: Coming Soon: Going to Albany to “Tell the Gov”

The Cuomo Abortion Expansion bill is ominously looming over all of NYS, as well as pending vote in the NYS Senate.  There are people from many states (and even outside the US) who follow this website, and since what is happening in New York bodes ill for the entire nation,  it is worth trying to comprehend what Gov. Cuomo is threatening to do to NYS.  As for its place on this website, expansion of abortion even further destroys what should be the rights of the unborn, to survive, to be born, to live!  The racial profiling analysis of abortions indicates a disproportionate use of abortion against babies of color.  And taxpayer funding of abortion violates the rights of conscience of all taxpayers who oppose abortion.

A petition is at the very end of this post, but letters to the editor are even more influential than petitions, which some people have noted Cuomo seems to ignore with impunity.

Here are the highlights of this immorality Gov. Cuomo is about to be foist on the citizens of NYS.  See also http://www.nys4life.com

The Abortion Expansion Bill

This legislation would usher in extreme and sweeping changes to abortion policy in New York State. 

  • The bill would permit unlimited late-term abortion on demand, which will allow more third-trimester abortions in New York State, a policy which the public strongly disapproves.  This ignores the state’s legitimate interest in protecting the lives of fully formed children in the womb, and ignores the will of a majority of New Yorkers who oppose late-term abortion.
  • The bill would endanger the lives of women by allowing non-physicians to perform abortions. While current law states that only a “duly licensed physician” may perform an abortion, this bill would allow any “licensed health care practitioner” to perform an abortion “prior to viability”.   This dangerous and extreme change clearly puts women’s health at risk, and mirrors a national abortion strategy to permit non-doctors to perform abortions due to the declining number of physicians willing to do so.
  • The bill would preclude any future reasonable regulations of abortion. It would establish a “fundamental right of privacy” within New York State law, encompassing the right “to terminate a pregnancy,” even though the Supreme Court has rejected, numerous times, classifying abortion as a “fundamental right.”  This bill says that abortion is fundamental and thus untouchable – no regulations on abortion, ever:
    • no parental notification for minors’ abortions,
    • no limits on taxpayer funding of abortion,
    • no limits on late-term abortions,
    • no informed consent for pregnant women seeking abortion.
    • None of the commonsense regulations enacted by the vast majority of states and supported by large majorities of the public would be allowed in New York.
  • The bill endangers the religious liberty of Catholic hospitals and other institutions. While the bill contains limited conscience protection, that protection is ambiguous and inadequate and is extended only to individual health providers who do not wish to “provide” abortions (protection that is already guaranteed by Civil Rights law.) What is not provided in the bill are protections for institutional providers, such as religious hospitals and other agencies that do not wish to be involved with abortion. The bill declares that “the state shall not discriminate” against the exercise of the fundamental right to abortion in the “provision of benefits, facilities, services or information.”  In other words, it would permit state regulators, such as the State Health Department or State Insurance Department, to require support for abortion from any agency or institution licensed or funded by the state.
  • The bill could be used to undermine the state’s maternity programs. In a similar way, these beneficial programs, which are working well to reduce infant mortality, could be ruled “discriminatory” for favoring childbirth over abortion, and be denied state benefits if this bill were to become law.

 

The abortion expansion bill is uncompromising in its terms and extremely sweeping in scope.  The bill goes against the increasingly pro-life sentiment in this country, as evidenced by the most recent Marist poll (December 2012) which found that more than 8 in 10 Americans favor significant restrictions on abortion.  The Gallup Organization (May 2011) found that only 27% of Americans believe abortion should be legal under all circumstances. The majority of American adults (61%) believe abortion should either be more strictly limited than current law or not permitted at all.

Not only does the bill defy public opinion, but it also defies common sense.  New York State remains the abortion capital of the nation with the highest abortion rate of any state. New York City’s abortion rate remains at 40%, with some geographic regions within the city at 60%.  The reality is that, unfortunately,  no woman is without ample opportunity for an abortion in New York State.  Rather than voting on a bill that will increase the tragedy of abortion, we urge policy makers to look at constructive ways to reduce abortion and truly make abortion “rare.”

Re: Stop the Cuomo Abortion Expansion Bill

Dear Governor Cuomo:

I am strongly opposed to the abortion expansion bill. Whether it is a stand-alone bill (like S.438, Stewart-Cousins), or re-packaged in a so-called women’s rights agenda, it is a bill to increase and expand abortion in a state that currently leads the nation in abortions. The proposal is no simple update to New York’s abortion laws, as proponents claim. It is a radical bill that would allow nonphysicians to perform abortions, permit more late-term abortions, and could be used to compel all medical facilities, including religious hospitals, to allow abortions.

This proposal is unnecessary and dangerous. Women will not reach new heights of equality through more abortion. Abortion is already widely available in New York. We need to work together to reduce abortion, not expand it. I strongly urge you to oppose any expansion of abortion in New York State.

Sincerely,

Comments

“When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgement, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God–and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world–and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us!”
Congressman Henry Hyde

I wonder Mr. Cuomo, will those voices plead for you? I pray that God will remove the scales from your eyes so that you can see the truth. All life is precious, from conception until it’s natural death. All life begins and ends by God’s hand, not man’s.
