New York City’s One World Trade Center was lighted in pink to “celebrate” the passing of a law that would protect the practice of late-term abortion in the state on Tuesday night.
The Reproductive Health Act was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in Albany earlier Tuesday, timed for the 46th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The law had been passed by the State Senate on a 38-24 vote, almost entirely split on the basis of party lines.
The legislation explicitly legalizes abortion after 24 weeks into a pregnancy in situations where it’s deemed to protect a woman’s health, or the pregnancy is deemed to be unviable. Previously, this kind of late-term abortion was only legal in New York when the mother’s life was at risk.
The Reproductive Health Act allows medical personnel other than doctors to perform abortion procedures, as long as they possess the necessary state licensing to do so. It also removes language proscribing certain abortion from the New York Criminal Code entirely, instead regulating the practice under public health code.
New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo made the order that the top of the Freedom Tower(the structure built to replace the Twin Towers destroyed on 9/11) be lit as a means to commemorate the law. Many pro-life advocates had vociferously protested the legislation- it appears their moral concerns with a law that enables some of the most objectionable forms of abortion were simply ignored when the Governor decided the Reproductive Health Act was something that should be commemorated by anyone glancing at New York City’s skyline.
Progressives have their reason to spike the football, that’s to be sure. The objective of the political left seems to veer openly lately from permitting abortion with hesitance to outright celebrating it.
Unfortunately, the unborn children of New York don’t seem to be invited to the party.

Federal Judge Issues Ruling to Allow Elective Abortions in Texas Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic
The abortion industry will continue during coronavirus.
A federal judge has issued an injunction against Texas Governor Greg Abbott after he banned elective abortions from taking place during the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush, made the ruling in Austin on Monday banning state officials from preventing abortions in Texas. Abortion providers will be able to perform abortions without restriction at least temporarily because of the ruling.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote in a legal brief that the prohibition on elective abortions was needed to “preserve desperately needed medical supplies for the health care professionals combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”
“Medical professionals are in dire need of supplies, and abortion providers who refuse to follow state law are demonstrating a clear disregard for Texans suffering from this medical crisis,” Paxton said.
Judge Yeakel claimed that the constitutional right for women to snuff out the lives of babies the womb trumps all public health concerns during an unprecedented crisis.
“Regarding a woman’s right to a pre-fetal-viability abortion, the Supreme Court has spoken clearly,” Yeakel wrote. “There can be no outright ban on such a procedure. This court will not speculate on whether the Supreme Court included a silent ‘except-in-a-national-emergency clause’ in its previous writings on the issue.”
Because of Judge Yeakel’s decision, the ban on elective abortions in Texas is off until at least April 13 when a court hearing will be held over the phone.
Big League Politics reported last week on the leftist hysteria that occurred after the states of Texas and Ohio announced their temporary ban on elective abortions:
States like Ohio and Texas have enacted orders to cease all non-essential surgeries.
NBC DFW highlights that these moves “have unleashed a new battle over access to abortions during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statewide order on Sunday March 22, 2020 to limit the use of medical supplies hospitals will need as they plan for rising numbers infections resulting from the Wuhan virus. The order prevents hospitals from carrying out surgeries unless the patient experiences an immediate risk for “serious adverse medical consequences or death, as determined by the patient’s physician.” …
Republican Attorney General Dave Yost sent letters to Ohio clinics on Friday, March 20, 2020 ordering them to stop all “non-essential” surgical abortions. Yost wrote that the procedures are in violation of a March 17 order enacted by the state health director.
Clinics, pro-baby killing groups, and some state elected officials criticized this move, claiming that abortions are both essential and time-sensitive.
“During an emergency, there is always a chance of government overreach under the guise of `security’ or adherence to `law and order,’” the Ohio Democratic Women’s Legislative Caucus declared in a statement. “In times of national crisis, we have seen egregious acts that have circumvented our freedoms before. And make no mistake – we are seeing them today.”
The baby-murder industry will continue unabated, thanks to the activist judiciary, even if it means putting the public at serious risk of catching coronavirus.
