The forces of eugenics never stop in their cause for murder, as the government of New York now wants to make infanticide — what they call abortion — as a right embedded right into the state’s constitution. As we read in a report from Democrat & Chronicle:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Monday for including abortion rights in the New York Constitution, calling it an unprecedented opportunity to protect a woman’s right to choose.
With former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by his side, Cuomo delivered a pro-choice speech at Barnard College in Manhattan, vowing to withhold support for a 2019-20 state budget until the Legislature approves the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, long-stalled bills that would bolster abortion rights and birth-control coverage, respectively.
But Cuomo took his call a step further, vowing to push an amendment that would enshrine a woman’s right to choose in the state Constitution.
Such a move would make it more difficult for future governors and lawmakers to reverse: A constitutional amendment has to be approved by successively elected Legislatures and approved by a vote of the public.
Cuomo first made the call for an amendment last year, but it has new strength with Democrats taking full control of the Legislature this year.
“We’ll pass it next year, we’ll put it on the ballot, we’ll write it into the constitution and we’ll be able to say we protected women’s rights in a way no one else has before,” Cuomo said Monday.
The Legislature is expected to approve the Reproductive Health Act — a bill that would install Roe v. Wade rights in state law and remove abortion from the penal code — on Jan. 22, the 46th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision.
For a decade, the bill stalled in Albany, held up by a Republican-led Senate that was highly critical of language in the bill that would allow health care professionals other than doctors to perform abortions.
