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.

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.“
