“A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Let’s look at New York’s new abortion law, because it is the one actually passed and cheered by the state legislature.

On Jan. 22, 2019, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Reproductive Health Act into law. The purpose of the new statute is to update the rights of women in accessing abortions and (anti)reproductive services. The law also makes it legally impossible to charge someone with the murder of an unborn child.

So this immediately begs the ongoing question: What is a human life?

One of the great falsities promoted by pro-abortionists is that an unborn child is not a human being. Well, if she’s not a human being, then what is she? She’s not a car.  Or a boat. She is most assuredly alive, and she has all the genetic information that other humans have. So, if she’s not human, what is she?

Pro-abortionists argue that the baby is not a human life because it is not independent. But none of us are. We are, by nature, social animals, which make us inherently dependent on others. And truly, if we are to use dependence as a cut-off for human life, then why do we not allow for the termination of the lives of the disabled simply because they are unable to provide for themselves? These people are just as dependent as any unborn baby for their survival, yet the Left, at least for now, is not arguing for their active extermination.

Pro-abortionists also argue that the pre-born individual could not be considered human because she has not reached some preconceived point in her development.

Well, if that’s true, then what is that point? Does a baby magically and suddenly become a human being when it crosses the birth canal or exits the mother through the abdominal wall? Certainly, it is hard to fathom the difference between the humanity of a just-delivered baby and that same baby literally 30 seconds earlier. Does the baby suddenly become human when her heart first beats, or when she feels pain, or when we can see her femora on ultrasound?

The fact is that any definition of when a baby becomes a “human being” other than at the moment of conception fails under the weight of its own capriciousness.

And so, we arrive at the only conclusion we can. A baby is an independently identifiable and uniquely genetically defined human being from the moment of her conception.

There is a lack of necessity for late term abortions, and a vulgarity.

Help us fight

One of the two most significant changes in New York’s Health Reproductive Act is to allow for a legal abortion after the 24th week of gestation. The statute accomplishes this by stating that an abortion may be performed, at any time, “to protect the patient’s life or health.” Not only is this provision abjectly immoral as it allows for the senseless killing of a viable human being, it creates an escape clause for a mass murderer (the late-term abortionist) to kill viable babies.

It is virtually impossible to conjure a situation where an abortion is medically necessary after 24 weeks of gestation. The reason is supremely simple: since the baby is viable in such situations, the way to protect the mother’s health after 24 weeks of gestation, if the rapid discontinuation of a pregnancy becomes necessary, is by delivering a viable baby, not by killing it.

With this law, the legislature in its rancid corruption and gross disregard for the sanctity of life has essentially created a new statutory (not medical) provision where the mother may demand to kill the baby.  That provision is that when the baby is more than 24 weeks gestational age, and the mother demands it be killed for her own health.

It will be interesting to see how physicians respond to this request when they are fully aware that all they need to do to address the mother’s life-threatening or health related issue is simply to deliver a viable baby.

If you are further along than 24 weeks in your pregnancy, you should avoid New York.

A second appalling provision in the Reproductive Health Act is the provision prohibiting the killing of an unborn baby that is greater than 24 weeks of age from being considered murder.

Suppose a robber attacks a woman for her purse, and the assailant pulls out a knife, or even a gun, in order to perpetrate the crime. Suppose further that the mother is due to deliver later that day. As a matter of fact, she is on her way to the hospital to deliver her baby. The robber then shoots the mother, killing the baby. The mother survives. There is no murder. In fact, a murder charge is specifically disallowed, as if the baby is invisible.

Say, instead that an enraged father does not want a late term baby to be born. The mother and he are in a heated fight. The father, in his rage, repeatedly punches the mother with the intent and effect of killing the baby. Or perhaps, the father grabs a kitchen knife and stabs the baby through the mother, and the baby is more than 24 weeks of gestational age. The baby, of course, dies. The mother survives. In New York, no murder will have taken place. Only an assault and battery upon the mother. No justice for the baby is ever served.

Section 4164 of New York statutes required a physician be available to resuscitate a child who has survived an abortion. The Reproductive Health Act admits that although this baby is legally a person, it repugnantly removes any requirement to save the life of a living, grasping, breathing human being.

This is a horrible stain on New York

Gandhi did say that the measure of a great society lies in how it treats its weakest members. Well, the weakest members in our society are the unborn who are at times so weak that they cannot survive outside of the mother and are so silent that it is impossible for them to voice their opinion or defend their most elemental interests.

A review of the meaning of fundamental and inalienable rights does provide a mother the ability to pursue an abortion. But just like her right to punch another in the nose ends at the point where the other’s nose begins, her right to actually undergo the abortion ends at the point where the baby’s cells begin.

By any measure, on Jan. 22, 2019, grossly disregarding the humanity of the unborn child and exculpating future killers of murder, the New York legislature and its executive demonstrated themselves to be among the worst and most vile of institutions.

    What is this pc garbage of using the feminine pronoun (‘she’) when speaking generally? Are you a liberal?

    That’s when I stopped reading. It’s too bad. It’s the kind of piece I would have forwarded otherwise.

    Thank you Dr. Gonzalez for a well written opinion and presentation of facts. I am haunted by a great doctor, Gesil Perl, a Romanian Gynecologist who was ordered by Joseph Mengele (Angel of Death) to perform barbaric operations on women (i.e., without anesthesia to cut off their breasts, stab babies through the stomach) and aborting babies to save the mother from death by Nazis/Germans. You can imagine that her soul was being assaulted by not only the Talmud but by her own conscience.

    When freed from Auschwitz and after having lived in Israel, she opened a practice in New York City. The movie Out of the Ashes is about this heroic physician. However, the last scene of the movie for me was the most soul searching. As she is delivering a baby from a young mother, she holds the baby up in the air and says, “Dear G-d I pray you let this baby live, you owe me!”

    Has the New York law ushered in the Mengele of our times? Can a mother’s holy image in America be saved or now we see mother’s with the right to kill babies at will? Is motherhood over rated, have we gone way too far in the Roe v. Wade by not giving men some say in the life of a baby being formed?

    I hope all those physicians in the abortion clinics, or young mothers who want to kill their babies while in or out of the womb watch Out of Ashes. I pray that the become enamored with what their babies will become and how society can only be enhanced morally, economically and scientifically if they are allowed to live.
