On Tuesday, January 22, 2019 — on the 46th anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision — New York Governor Mario Cuomo (D) signed into law the state’s making abortion legal up past the twenty-fourth week (6 months). And on Tuesday Night, Cuomo directed the 408-foot spire on the One World Trade Center, the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, the Kosciuszko Bridge, and the Alfred E. Smith Building in Albany to be lit pink to “celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.” (Source)
The law for the first time allows abortions after the 24-week mark to protect the mother’s health or in cases where the fetus won’t survive. (Source)
Every pregnancy puts the mother’s health at risk to some extent.
Would someone please tell me how this new law can be acceptable to anyone with a conscience? How can this be tolerated, much less celebrated in a civilized society?
