Wild cheering and applause erupted in the New York State legislature as lawmakers voted on Tuesday to declare abortion until birth a “fundamental right” and strike any protections for children in the womb from the books. January 22 was chosen to celebrate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which has resulted in the destruction of more than sixty million pre-born children since 1973.
The state Senate voted 38-24 in favor of the “Reproductive Health Act,” with the Assembly passing it by a margin of 92 to 47. The legislation states in part that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.” Read Prophecy News Watch article
Further in the article, New York’s Governor Cuomo was quoted as saying the bill was “a historic victory for New Yorkers and our progressive values…I am directing that New York’s landmarks be lit in pink to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.” Friends, the Judeo-Christian values that this country was founded upon are being eroded, layer by layer. To be sure, “progressive” is to be interpreted as a departure from laws that prohibit the behaviors that Cuomo and many other New Yorkers are celebrating. The problem is even deeper still; it is a departure from God’s law which simply says, “Thou shalt not kill (Ex. 20:13).” We most earnestly pray for the state of this nation that we change the present course.
