New York City, the nation’s biggest municipality, is set to directly fund abortion procedures for women who travel from states where they’re restricted.
The city council has appropriated $250,000 for the abortions. It’s likely that the city’s abortion fund would be enough to terminate up to 500,000 fetuses in the womb, but the program doesn’t amount to a full public funding of any and all abortions in the city either.
City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera led the effort to allocate the funds to the New York Abortion Access Fund, in what’s been called one of the first instances in which a city government has directly funded the dangerous procedures. New York already funds Planned Parenthood, by far the nation’s biggest abortion mill.
New York- both the city and the state- have shown themselves willing to push the boundaries on what has been traditionally understood as acceptable in a local government’s embrace of abortion, going well beyond other blue states.
Governor Andrew Cuomo figuratively spat in the face of pro-life New Yorkers when he ordered the Empire State Building to be lit pink, in celebration of the state legislature passing a late-term abortion law that expressly legalizes the procedure 24 weeks into a pregnancy. The New York legislature seems to have passed the law in direct response to advances in pro-life policy occurring in red states, a reactionary phenomenon that seems to be repeating with New York City’s bankrolling of the Abortion Access Fund.
The children of New York City deserve life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as well- even if the pro-abortion radicals in state and local government failing to protect them are blind to their plight.
Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
