We all knew that it was coming: killing of newborns at the moment of birth, at the whim of the mothers. After years allowing partial-birth abortions when the mother’s LIFE is in danger, New York’s new law allows abortion up to the moment of birth if the mother’s HEALTH is allegedly in danger.
It will be entirely left up to those who make their living in the abortion industry to define when a pregnant woman’s “health” is in danger. Their definition will surely include “emotional” health. Thus, as a practical matter, there will be no limits or restrictions on the slaughter of full-term, healthy babies. If mom has changed her mind during her nine-month pregnancy, she will have medical assistance to legal kill her baby.
THE BABY’S BRAINS ARE SCRAMBLED
Not being a medically-trained person, this writer is having trouble envisioning just how a full-term, healthy baby will be, can be, legally slaughtered other than using the partial-birth abortion method.
A human being is not considered a person with the Constitutional Right to Life UNTIL his head is outside the mother’s body. Thus, in partial-birth abortion, the birth process is begun, making sure that the baby is coming head-first down the birth canal.
As the baby’s head comes close to mother’s vagina, the birth process is stopped. The doctor then inserts a knife or scissors at the base of the child’s skull. The knife or scissors is moved around inside the skull to destroy the child’s brain. The birth process is then resumed and the baby is born dead.
LIBERALS’ GOAL: NO YOUTH
TO CONTINUE AMERICAN CULTURE
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) was so gleeful as he signed “The Reproductive Health Act” one would think that he had just won the lottery. Maybe he has. With fewer and fewer American babies, Cuomo will likely use this as an excuse to bring in more children from foreign countries, legally & illegally.
This dramatic change in the law comes at a time when abortions are at historic lows both in New York State and nationwide. The U.S. abortion rate was 15.9 abortions per 1,000 women of child-bearing age in 2006, compared with 11.8 in 2015. New York’s abortions declined by 13 percent between 2011 and 2015. [2015 is the most recent year when statistics are available.]
Despite the declining numbers, New York’s abortion rate of 23.1 per thousand was still twice the national average. About 25 to 27 percent of pregnancies in the state end in abortion. ONE-FOURTH OF PREGNANCIES IN NEW YORK STATE RESULT IN ABORTIONS.
NON-DOCTORS CAN PERFORM ABORTIONS
In order to ensure that there are enough trained medical personnel available to meet the new abortion demand, The Reproductive Health Act allows nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwives to provide abortions, in addition to physicians. The public can expect a significant increase in maternal deaths, as well.
What has happened to us? How/where/when/why did American culture create so many creatures who gleefully promote killing America’s most innocent and vulnerable? Why have American voters elected politicians who want to slaughter the next generation?
