The state of New York, long established as one of the most liberal in the nation, has now, in its progressive wisdom, decided that abortion is not only a right, but one that can be carried out up to the point of a baby’s delivery. One second, you have a living, vibrant child ready to come out of the womb to enter this world of woe; in the next second, you have a dead baby, killed by an abortionist (who doesn’t even have to be a medical professional). If this isn’t infanticide, what is?
New York governor Andrew Cuomo has been at his self-righteous, self-preening best (worst?) in the wake of this bill that he joyously signed into law. While praising the fact that New York is not so barbarous as to carry out a death penalty upon hardened criminals who deliberately murder others, he simultaneously praises the slaughter of innocent children. Calls for him and others like him to be barred from taking communion in his Catholic Church fall on deaf ears. As someone who takes communion weekly, I say with conviction that it should be taken only after a self-examination and repentance of any sin in one’s life.
I guess that doesn’t matter to Andrew Cuomo or his church’s authorities.
Let’s be clear what this New York law allows.
I’ve used this particular Biblical citation before when writing about issues such as abortion, but it’s worth repeating:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. . . . Who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.Isaiah 5:20-21,23
This is where we are as a nation. Only a thorough grounding in Biblical truth and a genuine commitment to carrying out that truth in our society will ever allow us to reverse course on our path to creating a hell on earth.
