While I was “out of the loop” on a mission trip to Honduras the New York state senate passed a bill expanding abortion rights in New York. Governor Cuomo of New York, a Roman Catholic, signed the bill into law on January 22 – no doubt a message to pro-life individuals by signing the bill on the same day as the Roe v. Wade decision of the U.S. Supreme Court. This bill allows for abortions through the entire 9 months of pregnancy. Upon returning home, I saw a disgusting video of these proud legislators giving themselves an applause for their great work.
Abortion is a great moral issue in our society. What the New York legislature has done, and the similar measure being contemplated in Virginia, is an example of the complete inability of the political system to properly deal with this great moral issue.
Please remain vigilant in preserving the right to life. Please pray about this. Please do your part to change hearts of people around you on this important issue.
