New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Democrat-controlled New York Legislature rammed Planned Parenthood’s dream into law in the Empire State.
The so-called “Reproductive Health Act” ensconced late-term abortion-on-demand in the New York State Constitution.
And what the outrageous law now means for an accused murderer will break your heart.
The Left lost its collective mind in jubilation when New York Democrats rammed the most radical pro-abortion legislation in the country into law.
Now, the outrageous law that makes abortion a “fundamental right” is being cited by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown to justify dropping charges against a man alleged of murder.
Anthony Hobson was arrested following the murder of his pregnant girlfriend and her unborn child.
But now that New York has enacted Planned Parenthood’s dream law, Hobson is getting to skate on the criminal abortion charge that prosecutors initially leveled against him for the child’s death.
The New York Post reports:
Prosecutors initially included a charge of abortion against the Queens man arrested Friday in his pregnant girlfriend’s murder — but rescinded it because of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new Reproductive Health Act.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown sent out a press release saying Anthony Hobson, 48, would be charged with second-degree abortion as well as murder in Sunday’s fatal stabbing of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35.
But a DA spokeswoman later told The Post that the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.”
Cuomo signed the RHA into law on Jan. 22, the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
The law removes abortion from the state’s criminal code and puts it into public health law.
It faced fierce opposition, with the New York State Catholic Conference warning that it “removes accountability for those who would harm unborn children outside the context of medical termination of pregnancy.”
Sadly, murder suspects evading criminal abortion charges because of this law isn’t the least bit surprising.
Last year, a man was sentenced to 22 years in prison for spiking his pregnant girlfriend’s drink with an abortion-inducing drug. Would he have also gotten off scot-free under this new law?
The Democrats who passed the most radical pro-abortion law in the country almost certainly knew this would be among the many tragic results.
But abortion-on-demand has become a sacred tenet for leftists.
And pro-abortion activists admitting that such wanton disregard for human life is wrong when committed on the streets puts their dark enterprise at risk no matter if it takes place in a clinic or not.
We want to know how you feel about it. Should abortion-on-demand be allowed?
