New York already has one of the highest abortion rates in the country. Also when you have a baby in New York you can put the gender of the child as X on their birth certificate. So of course NY wants to be the most “progressive” state in the country so they just passed the most progressive, and in my opinion, evil, pieces of legislation.
With the recent law passed, abortions are legal until birth in New York State. I’m sure the abortion activists are going to try to spin, it that it doesn’t actually mean that. But first they defined what a person is in the legislation, that you aren’t a person until you are born, so that mean there are no protection for the unborn at all in NYS. Second they broaden the exception reason for allowing an abortion after 24 weeks. The exceptions could be economic, age, social and emotional. All very subjective reasons.
This is a sad development for Pro-Lifers in New York, but I think the push for this legislation and you will see this push in other progressive Democrat run states, is that see that it is very possible in the near future for Roe to be overturned and they are preparing the way for that.
