Our esteemed governor Andrew Cuomo is out stumping to gin up support for an initiative he calls a protective act for women. As part of this proposed legislation governmental sanction of partial birth abortions up to the ninth month would be assured. The governor has said he will not sever this clause from the legislation even though he is facing opposition from right to life groups. This man is a CINO (catholic in name only) and is again demonstrating the type of grandstanding he thinks will catapult him into the presidency in 2016. Perhaps he should pay more attention to what scripture has to say in the matter.
Luke 1:41 tells us that when Mary, the cousin of Elizabeth and mother of Yeshua visited Elizabeth during her pregnancy with the child John, foretold to his father by an angel of the Lord, the baby lept within her womb. Take note scripture does not say the shapeless, formless mass of tissue moved within her, scripture clearly says “the baby”. That baby and his more famous cousin to come after him both had names given to them in the Kingdom of Heaven. In fact, God the Father knows every one of his creation by name. How then can mortal men and women treat life with this cavalier attitude?
Further proof is given in John 16:21 when Jesus is speaking to the disciples at the last supper. He says: “When a woman is about to give birth, she is in agony because her time of suffering has come, but when the BABY is born, she forgets her sorrow because she has brought a new life into the world.” God himself declared that life exists in the womb and when last I looked, God’s law is stronger than the machinations of the supreme court. The loss of life on any battlefield, in the horrors of the terrorist attacks on our country, in the countless accidents that occur every day pales in comparison to the wanton slaughter of humans whom the courts have declared have no rights. In fact, the courts cannot seem to make up their minds. In cases where someone causes a baby to die by injuring or killing its mother, that person can face manslaughter charges. In cases where a supposed medical professional follows a woman’s request to terminate her pregnancy, that person is celebrated as some kind of hero. Death of a baby is still death, yet the courts seem determined to twist law into a grotesque dichotomy.
Pray that God will strengthen the hearts of women to shun this abominable choice. Pray that He will strengthen our legislators to act in keeping with His moral will. Pray for the courage to stand up for the rights of our smallest citizens.
