NY, and the “New Healthcare Act”


On January 22, 46 years after of the “legalization” of abortion in the United States, to “honor” this very infamous date, the governor of the State of New York, Andrew Cuomo, passed a law (the New York Reproductive Health Act) that allows aborting babies until after the third trimester of pregnancy. In other words, babies can be aborted until “a few moments before birth”. This sounds like the main theme for a horror movie, but unfortunately, it is something worse, since it is a reality. The speech, which by the way is the same speech that every “good liberal” presented, was the following: “Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion. With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body,” (Gov. Andrew Cuomo after signing New York’s Reproductive Health Act) Very well, there are several arguments in this demagogue speech by the Governor of New York that I would like to comment on. First, why do you call this law “reproductive health”? should not be called “anti-reproductive” instead?… Why do they present pregnancy as a disease? … Perhaps the health service should not better provide services, so that the mother and the baby, are healthy, strong and low risk of something going wrong in pregnancy and childbirth? In his speech, Governor Cuomo says: “woman’s right”; He manipulates this term, which we see in many politicians (especially the left) in many countries when they want to legalize abortion. The woman, and the man, have no right to kill an innocent. It is very simple. But, it comes to my mind that Our Lord Jesus was an innocent man who was murdered by the powerful of his time. The other “magical” term used by Governor Cuomo was, “… make your own decisions about your own personal health …” (and further forward) “… fundamental right to control your own body …” OK, fundamental right? The right to life is a fundamental right. The body should rather be “controlled”, both by the woman and by the man, before having a relationship that leads to an “unwanted pregnancy” (to use the same language). The false and weak of this argument could be: “If a woman wants to have an affair with someone that is not her husband or take away her life or someone else’s life … or get high and lose control …” should have that? Why not? perhaps the law does not protect the “fundamental right” to control your own body? Politicians like this abound, we see them here and there. But they come to power by voters like us. Be careful who we vote for! The saddest thing about this matter is that the Gov. Cuomo is called himself “Catholic.” But with Catholics like this, the Church would have been ruined before leaving the catacombs. Some members of the Church, they want Governor Cuomo ex-communicated. I believe it is useless. We must understand what the reason for this canonical penalty is. It is not the mission of the Church to excommunicate people who behave badly. Just imagine, very few would be Catholics. However, the catechism of the Catholic Church (num 2272) reads as follows: Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. “A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae Sententiae,” In this sense, Governor Cuomo is already excommunicated automatically. The Governor Cuomo rather now should see the way to repent, do penance and return to Church. In short, this “triumph” so applauded, amid that atmosphere of “party and applause” (coven like), by many feminists and liberals (we see it in the video), was a work of 12 years. This is something that we Christians must consider and those who work for Life and the Family. Constancy is a virtue that we must not forget. But you must use it for good. I know of some who misu
