The culture of death get moving
(ACI) The Senate of the State of New York (United States) has approved by 38 votes against 24 a new abortion law that will allow this practice throughout pregnancy and that is performed not only by doctors.
The Reproductive Health Law was approved on Tuesday, January 22, after a legal fight that began in 2007.
This normative will allow health professionals, such as nurse practitioners and attending physicians, to perform abortions. It also endorses delayed abortion at any time in case of fetal unfeasibility or “when necessary to protect the life or health of the patient.”
The law, approved on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973, also transfers this practice from the criminal code to the health code.
the regulation establishes that abortion will remain legal in the state of New York, even if the Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade’s ruling.
In a public statement posted on the New York State website, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said that the decision “is an historic victory for New Yorkers.”
The new law was celebrated in the Senate and in several points of the city, where buildings were lit up to celebrate the norm.
The bishops of New York said that the approval of this law is “a sad chapter” for history. “Our beloved state has become a more dangerous place for women and their unborn babies,” they said in a statement.
For his part, the Archbishop of New York, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, said that with this law “the abortion will be legal until the moment of birth, health professionals who consider disgusting the murder of unborn babies will not be entitled to objection of conscience, there will be no need for doctors prepared for dismemberment and any baby that survives a scalpel or suction, and still alive, may be left to die until his death. Is this progressivism? “He questioned.
“All people have rights: immigrants, the poor, pregnant women and their babies. They are all children of God, as the Rev. Martin Luther King would say, and everyone has rights, “the Cardinal stressed.
