The passage of the newest abortion law in New York raised a lot of hackles, and for good reason. It legalizes abortion all the way up to the moment the mother begins to dilate in preparation for birth. It’s not surprising, then, to find out that statistics as far back as four years ago show that the number of babies murdered after the 21st week of pregnancy exceeded the number of homicides. It was more dangerous to be a baby in the mother’s womb than to be alive and on the street!
This from Breitbart:
The number of babies aborted in New York City at or after 21 weeks of pregnancy outnumbered homicide victims in 2015.
According to the most recent abortion data available for 2015 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and published by the New York Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the number of abortions at or after 21 weeks was 1,485 while the number of homicide victims was 352.
A report at CNSNews.com observed the data showed about 0.96 people per day had been victims of “murder and non-negligent manslaughter” in 2015 in New York City, while 4.1 babies at the gestational age of 21 weeks or older were aborted per day.
On Sunday, the NYT defended Democrats who have failed to support Born-Alive legislation that would protect babies who survive abortions from infanticide.
The NYT claimed President Donald Trump’s condemnation of Democrats as the party of “late-term abortion” and “infanticide” is “incendiary” and “inaccurate.”
The debate comes in the wake of the enactment of New York’s Reproductive Health Act, which Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law in January, and for which he afterward received a barrage of criticism.

“I am a former altar boy,” Cuomo attempted to defend his decision in the NYT to order the World Trade Center complex illuminated in pink to celebration abortion as a “fundamental right.”
After Cuomo’s reference to his Catholic roots, Catholic Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger of Albany referred to the governor’s legislation as the “Death Star.”
The New York State Right to Life Committee noted the new abortion law defines a “person” as a “human being who has been born and is alive” – meaning unborn babies are not “persons” – and further degrades unborn children by removing criminal penalties for violence against them during a homicide.
Subsequently, Trump said during his State of the Union address that “all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.”
A Marist poll released at the end of March found an overwhelming majority of New York state residents opposed to abortion later in pregnancy:

According to the survey, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, 75 percent of New Yorkers oppose abortion after the fifth month of pregnancy, including 69 percent of Democrats, 73 percent of independents, and 89 percent of Republicans.

Thank GOD President Trump got it right because the New York Times and Governor Cuomo missed the mark by a country mile! It’s just about impossible to fathom that they could be so far off the rails on the subject of abortion, especially in light of the scientific and medical advances that are at our disposal in this day and age. When Roe v. Wade was passed, they didn’t have the technology to look into the womb and witness what we can plainly see now. Today there is no excuse for anyone to believe that the baby in the tummy is just a clump of cells.
It was during the recent CPAC convention that Candace Owens brought up the statistic that nearly 75% of the abortions performed in New York are black babies. She pointed out how it is more dangerous for a black baby to be in the womb there than it is for blacks already born. The liberal political establishment continues to ignore the will of the people. I hope their continued stubbornness causes an uprising in the electorate and that they find themselves out of power.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
