Governor Andrew Cuomo of the state of New York┬ásigned into law the so-called “Reproductive Health Act” on the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 2019. It is now law in New York that unrestricted abortion for any reason up until the moment of birth is guaranteed. Non-physicians (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and license midwives) are now allowed to perform abortions, and any protections for babies born alive during abortions are now removed.

Roe v. Wade did not make the right to abortion unlimited, but the Reproductive Health Act DOES. It expands abortion past 24 weeks of pregnancy, which was the New York law, up until birth, if “the abortion is necessary to protect the patient’s life or health.” (Health, as defined by the WHO, is a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”)

More states have and will follow New York’s lead.

This is unacceptable. We the undersigned demand that all governors and state legislators in the United States reject New York’s deadly path and instead encourage laws to protect children and their mothers from the tragedy of abortion and infanticide. Our children and mothers deserve much, much better. Women and children deserve the warmth of life, not the cold embrace of death.
