NY Governor Seeks to Make Abortion a Constitutional Right
So, now we see the pendulum swinging in the opposite direction. We have the conservatives in power and the liberals running for cover. It proves what I have said since George W. Bush was president: be careful the club you fashion, it may be turned on you.
This seems to be the case for the liberals. They finally had all the power and a flaming liberal in the White House to wield it for them. They pushed through social healthcare. They pushed through gross spending and the massive expansion of the welfare state. They pushed through sodomite unions. Now, the stick has switched hands, and they are ready to panic.
The Christian News reports:
The Democratic governor of New York is calling for lawmakers to pass a bill enshrining abortion as a right in the state Constitution in the event that the U.S. Supreme Court ever overturns Roe v. Wade.
“As they threaten this nation with a potential Supreme Court nomination that will reverse Roe v. Wade, I want them to know today: If that’s what they do, we’re going to protect Roe v. Wade in the state of New York,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared at a “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” rally on Monday.
“I propose today a constitutional amendment to write Roe v. Wade into the New York State Constitution so that nobody can change it—no Supreme Court nominee [can undo it],” he proclaimed to cheers and applause. “We will not allow the progress of the women’s movement to be stopped, and we must seize this opportunity to bring the state and the nation forward and stand up for women’s health.“
Cuomo has failed to recognize one small problem with his plan; this has been tried. This is the same kind of thing that multiple Southern states did to combat abortion. The result was the federal courts knocking it down.
The stick is now in the other hand. If the SCOTUS rules that the unborn are people, he can have a unanimous vote for keeping their murder factories, it will not change the fact that it will be seen as state sanctioned and sponsored murder.
Surely, he does not think that they will just overlook such a thing.
