New York legislature votes to legalize abortion up to birth, let non-doctors commit abortions

ALBANY, New York, January 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Both chambers of the New York state legislature voted Tuesday on legislation to enshrine a “fundamental right” to abortion in state law and eliminate protections for preborn babies until birth, in votes set to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The state Senate voted 38-24 in favor of the so-called “Reproductive Health Act” Tuesday evening, the Albany Times-Union reports, a bill that has repeatedly cleared the state Assembly in years past but been blocked by the formerly-Republican Senate. Following the Senate vote, the Assembly passed it 92-47.

The bill declares that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” erases the state’s recognition of preborn babies older than 24 weeks as potential homicide victims, removes abortion from the penal code entirely, and allows licensed health practitioners other than full doctors to commit abortions.

Couldn't finish the article. Can't believe that unborn babies have no rights. Does that mean taxpayers pay for it?

Even the phrase that they use, " commit abortions " is so close to
" commit murder ".

So if I'm pregnant, go into labor at full term, I can get an abortion and kill that child rather than have a live birth. That is murder and I'm glad i dont live in new york when murdering babies is legal. I wonder if this is a move by the left to limit welfare babies.

Why not go that extra step further and say that they can snuff the kid anytime before he or she is ready for public school?
