Tell us again, New York, what's 'morally indefensible'

Matt Walsh NY abortion law tweetAmericans let out a collective gasp after New York's Democratic governor signed radical abortion legislation this week, and a legal expert says women's lives are at risk because of it.

Reporting on the new law, LifeSiteNews writes that pro-life leaders are responding with "disgust, sorrow, and resolve" after New York legislators backed the "fundamental right" to abortion.

On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act, which has repeatedly passed the state Assembly but was blocked by a state Senate that flipped to Democrats.

Steven H. Aden of Americans United for Life tells OneNewsNow the new law has several troubling provisions, including abolishing the requirement that only doctors can perform an abortion.

The bill also allows girls of any age to undergo abortions without parental consent.

Aden, Steven (AUL)What is likely most concerning to pro-lifers is that any week limits are now gone. Any such limits have been dropped.

"New York won a battle to expand the killing of babies, but they won't win the war," Lila Rose, prresident of Live Action, wrote on Twitter. 

"Clearly this bill was passed as a result of political ambitions to further abortion," Aden complains, "not for the sake of women's health and safety."

LifeSite News and other media outlets reported that Cuomo ordered One World Trade Center to be lit up in pink to celebrate passage of the bill, and the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List pointed out the World Trade Center memorial to 9-11 victims includes the names of 11 unborn children.

Just days after witnessing the pro-abortion celebration, pro-lifers were struck by the irony after Cuomo announced New York was ending the death penalty because it is "morally indefensible."
