Cuomo Moves to Strike Abortion from Penal Code

The Reproductive Health Act would remove abortion entirely from the NY State penal code. It begs the question: why was abortion in the penal code in the first place, if no other medical procedures were?1219484_caduceus

Answer: Abortion is not medicine.

Medicine seeks to help someone recover or maintain their health. Abortion does neither of those things. Pregnancy represents the healthy functioning of reproductive systems. Abortion impedes the natural, healthy reproductive process. Abortion is not healthcare—it’s a facelift. It is in our penal code because it should be monitored like any other elective bodily modification, i.e. tattooing, body piercing, tanning, breast augmentation, etc.

Cuomo's Reproductive Health ActThe fact that Cuomo and the NY State legislature would consider mainstreaming abortion in this way reveals either their ignorance of the medical profession or their desire to use it as a tool for their own political aspirations. In either case, considering the complete decriminalization of abortion instead of investigating the true ramifications of these elective procedures is befuddling, especially under the guise of “reproductive rights.”

New York lies in the shadow of the Gosenll trial with additional examples of fraud, abuse, and murder harbored within the abortion industry. There is example after example in states all across the country of the abuse of women at the hands of malpracticing abortionists. If we’re willing to restrict gun access because of a shooting in Connecticut, why are we deregulating  abortion access in light of the fraud, abuse, and death fouind in California, Maryland, New Jersey Pennsylvania, Illinois, yes and even New York? That kind of inconsistency at the executive level of government makes one wonder if this is really about women at all! Or is it about someone’s presidential aspirations?

Tell your representatives: Investigate, don’t legislate.

NY to Deregulate Abortionists; Destroy Pregnancy Centers

“Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it,” said British statesman and philosopher, Edmund Burke. Similarly, those in who fail to fight the machinations of NY politicians will be doomed to their designs at the Federal level; especially when it comes to abortion and Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC).

Black Population ExtinctionCorning, New York is home to infamous Margaret Sanger, proponent of the destruction of certain races and classes of people and founder of Planned Parenthood. One way she thought to accomplish her agenda was by what she called, “Birth Control.” The African American Community in NY now meets the criteria for an endangered species. On July 1st 1970 New York legalized abortion on demand. On July 2nd, one day later, the first free standing abortion clinic opened in the Rochester/Syracuse region.  

In 2010 New York City (NYC), the abortion capital of the U.S., voted to pass a city ordinance restricting the advertising capability of pregnancy centers. At a hearing regarding that ordinance I urged that ‘the vote on this proposed NYC amendment be tabled indefinitely until such a time as a more thorough review of women’s reproductive health service standards can be done so that a more equitable and constitutionally sound alternative can be developed,’ (For my full testimony click here). However, the ordinance passed, an injunction was rendered and we await an appellate decision as to whether or not the ordinance violates the 1st amendment rights of Pregnancy Centers.

Now New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, with close ties to the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), just served a subpoena investigating pro-life pregnancy centers in NYC claiming misleading advertising. Is it a coincidence that just a few days before a NY State Senate bill was introduced in May 2013 that mirrors the NYC ordinance, U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney of NYC re-introduced her Federal bill to restrict pregnancy center advertising nationwide the very next week? All this just as NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo, vows to introduce his abortion expansion bill making abortion and contraception fundamental human rights thereby paving the way for discrimination lawsuits filed against pregnancy centers and pro-life doctors.

ericschaffNew York has hundreds of abortionists who are not held accountable to current Health Department regulations similar to the debacle with Gosnell just a few short miles to the South. One abortionist who researched the abortion pill RU-486 in Rochester, NY was the Medical Director responsible for a Planned Parenthood office in Wilmington, DA that was closed for what staff RNs called, “meat-market style abortions.”

Instead of investigating to increase standards of care for women in an obviously corrupt abortion industry, NY politicians are seeking to pass legislation reducing the already low bar set for abortionists by insulating them from malpractice in cases of botched abortions as well as permitting non-doctors to perform surgical abortion. Ironically all this is perpetrated under the banner of ‘Women’s Equality.’ The provisions in Cuomo’s heinous abortion expansion bill are summarized here.

There is a legislative cancer in NY State government which, if we are not careful, will spread to the Federal government endangering Good Samaritan pro-life doctors and Pregnancy Centers. It must be stopped in NY or it will continue to metastasize. Please continue raising awareness of this unjust state of affairs. Use social media and the resources available here, write letters to the editor, contact your legislator, preach, pray, volunteer, give money.  Governor Cuomo has until the end of the legislative session, June 20th, to get what he wants. Let’s keep pushing for what’s right, together!

Why Judge Korman’s Plan B Decision Is Wrong

Judge Edward Korman struck down a decision by Kathleen Sebelius to ban dispensing to minors over-the-counter “Emergency Contraception” known as Plan B. His decision is bad for for medicine, bad for women, and bad for parents.

Plan B is made of a synthetic, non-biodegradable, steroid suspected of causing cancer in the smaller daily dose commonly known as ‘the pill.’ When taken as a child oral contraception is linked to increasing the risk of the worst form of breast cancer by over 500%! The kicker is that Plan B represents a dosage that is 50x higher than the suggested daily dose of the pill. And we want to give it to girls and call it reproductive health? Sibelius banned its use for minors with good reason. It is irresponsible to give this drug to anyone let alone girls without physician involvement and parental consent. The doctor/patient relationship is designed primarily to help a person heal or maintain their health. True healthcare requires education hence the Latin root for doctor is the verb ‘to teach.’ Only informed patients are empowered patients. The judge’s decision totally extracts the doctor from patient care and undermines a women’s long term health.

And what of parental rights? So now we have Judges complicit with political agendas not only intervening in medicine but also in the care of children? If Andrew Cuomo gets his abortion expansion bill passed it would make access to contraception (including this Plan B) a fundamental human right. Coupled with Korman’s decision this would mean that your 12 year old daughter could go to the school nurse and be given a heavy dose of a cancer-causing drug without your knowledge or consent. This lowers the standard of care for women. How does this represent Cuomo’s precious women’s equality? These drugs are simply the female version of drugs that when taken by male athletes to enhance their performance lands them in jail.

Then there is sexual abuse. A lot of minors are pregnant because of child sexual abuse. Judge Korman’s decision will only serve to cover it up further.

This decision seems like it is only good for politicians, pharmaceutical companies, and child sex abusers.
