As you’ve have probably heard, the state of New York just removed virtually all legal protections for preborn children and safeguards for pregnant women victimized by the abortion industry.
Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, signed the Reproductive Health Act, or RHA, on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which the pro-life movement somberly remembered on the same day, January 22.
61M American children have died since that Supreme Court decision.
New York’s new law will endanger even more children and mothers than ever before.
Let’s discuss a few elements of this new law, Reproductive Health Act.
- RHA now legalizes abortion until the moment of birth but is not the only state to have done so.
In fact, six other states plus Washington, D.C., also allow abortion until birth: Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, & Vermont.
- But what makes the RHA stand out is how it was celebrated by the abortion movement. It was cheered and applauded and publicly celebrated in New York.
The bill passed the State Assembly by a large margin and was signed into law in the presence of the most radical and fringe abortion activists.
The signing was followed by a government-mandated celebration across iconic New York City. Gov. Cuomo ordered that historic landmarks around the city be lit up in pink – the beautiful color usurped by Planned Parenthood – to celebrate the impending deaths of New York’s most defenseless children.
One World Trade Center
Perhaps most egregiously, the spire of One World Trade Center, where eleven preborn children who died in 9/11 are memorialized, was lit in pink.
Cuomo said in a statement: “I am directing that New York’s landmarks be lit in pink to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”
When we label the wanton killing of our own children a “bright light,” we know we are in an age of unprecedented evil.
- Here are some basics of the new law, RHA:

New York no longer recognizes a human being as a person until after he or she has been born.
Once again, instead of being valued for simply being human, abortion activists continue to rely on the ambiguous and discriminatory label of “personhood” in order to justify killing an entire class of human beings. Humans have killed other humans throughout history because of race, gender, size, color, religion, geography, social class, and a host of other traits. Personhood is simply the latest discrimination factor and the current favorite of the abortion industry.
But even with that egregious application of the personhood discrimination label, children who survive abortion and are born are not protected by the law.
The RHA removes legal protections that once ensured that viable babies who survived abortion would be given medical treatment.The RHA removes legal protections that once ensured that viable babies who survived abortion would be given medical treatment. Click To Tweet
The bill reflects a pure, unadulterated hatred of children in the womb. But does the bill even protect women? Hardly.
The RHA says that certain non-physicians can now commit abortions in New York. What happened to giving women very best medical care for their abortions? Are we seeing a return to those back alley abortions that we heard about so many years ago?
The RHA also repeals New York laws that punish criminals who harm women in an attempt to kill their preborn children, leaving the mothers of wanted children to mourn without recourse to the state.
New York became the home of the first version of a Planned Parenthood clinic over one hundred years ago and has led the abortion movement for decades.
New York City is, by a large margin, the most abortion-dense area in the entire United States.
And, according to the city’s own documentation, more African-American children are aborted than born alive in NYC. You heard that correctly – more than ½ of Black babies in New York are already aborted. The the most dangerous place in New York City for a black baby is actually the womb.
And New York just celebrated this advancement of the culture of death with applause and pink lights.
The leading cause of death in America is the killing of children in the womb, and New York continues to promote and advance this culture of death.
