New York Democrats Pass Landmark Abortion Legislation
Before today, it was already legal to get an abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy in the state of New York. Now, thanks to the passage of the The Reproductive Health Act, which went into effect immediately, it’s a lot easier to get one anytime. With the passage of the act, healthcare providers other than doctors are allowed to legally perform abortions and they can perform them “at any time when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health.” In other words, babies can be killed in the womb right up to the moment of birth.
The brutality allowed by this act, which was passed to the sound of cheers in the Democrat-controlled state legislature, rivals that of King Herod. Yet, Christian observers should not he shocked. Life begins at conception. While it may be bloodier, the wickedness of a late-term abortion is no less than that of an early-term chemical abortion. The depravity of the State of New York is comparable to that of Sodom and Gommorah. If the typical New Yorker believed in Molech, he’d not hesitate to sacrifice his sons and daughters in the fire.
Pro-life politics, at least in New York, have proven futile. The gospel, not regulations and maneuvering, is the only hope for the sinners of that state. Political efforts amount to the best-laid plans of mice and men. Salvation through Jesus Christ is the plan of God. In the wake of this disturbing news, I urge Christian New Yorkers to redouble their efforts to share the gospel with the lost and abandon, in time, talent, and treasure, the failed efforts the state’s pro-life lobby. As God’s restraining grace is taken away and New Yorkers are left to their own sin, the state may well sink to the lowest demonic depths of depravity.
