New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Governor Andrew Cuomo’s policy prescriptions on guns and abortion are as equally inconsistent and as absurd as these policy prescriptions heralded by Senator Harris.
Andrew Cuomo, as with Kamala Harris, demonstrates an odd schizophrenia when it comes to the challenge of life and death. He is so concerned about Radical Left policy objectives, he apparently fails to see and appreciate the inconsistency and as a result inherent incoherence and irrationality of these policy prescriptions.
With passage of the horrific Reproductive Wellness Act of 2019, Governor Cuomo has shown a predilection for permitting the killing of babies. And, in that regard, it need to be pointed out that New York has normally embraced lenient abortion laws. But, the Reproductive Wellness Act goes far, far beyond prior law and policy. It is each deviously clever and fiendishly pernicious. It has tiny if something to do with a woman’s reproductive overall health and every thing to do with advertising death.
Similarly, the New York Protected Act has tiny if something to do with gun security and it has every thing to do with restricting a law-abiding citizen’s capacity to defend his or her life. The Protected Act bans a substantial quantity of firearms that are in widespread use and as a result fall inside the scope of Second Amendment protection. New York has normally had extraordinarily restrictive and pernicious gun laws. But, with enactment of the Protected Act, gun laws have turn out to be increasingly burdensome. Law-abiding New York gun owners are now plagued by a substantial quantity of confusing, oppressive gun regulations. They are even denied the suitable to bequeath their private house to subsequent of kin. Apart from straight infringing the Second Amendment, the so-known as “Safe” Act in fact tends to make these people who want to physical exercise their basic suitable to hold and bear arms, much less, not extra, protected, provided the sheer quantity of new restrictive gun laws and abstruse, normally inscrutable legal text.
A law-abiding gun owner who misinterprets the code sections—an straightforward point to do—may drop one’s gun license[a state managed permision], along with one’s firearms, and can face criminal penalties as properly. How, then, does the “Safe Act” make a law-abiding gun owner protected? Due to the fact enactment of the NY Protected Act, Cuomo has constrained physical exercise of the Second Amendment even additional, demonstrating, as Cuomo has acknowledged, that the NY Protected Act was by no means meant to be an finish in itself but merely a perform in progress. Cuomo will not be happy till every single law-abiding American citizen residing in New York is disarmed. And nevertheless he would not be accomplished. His want is to make the New York Protected Act the model for Congressional legislation, affecting the whole Nation.
But, is the Protected Act a prescription for preserving life or merely a pretext for disarming the public? When one particular appears at Cuomo’s stance on abortion, it is clear that Cuomo is not concerned with advertising public security and safeguarding life at all.
Six years following signing into law his signature anti-gun measure, the New York Protected Act of 2013, on January 15, 2013, Cuomo signed the Reproductive Wellness Act into law on January 22, 2019. The name provided to New York’s abortion law is as misleading and deceptive as the name provided to New York’s anti-gun legislation legislation. Just as the New York Protected Act has tiny if something to do with advertising public security, New York’s Reproductive Wellness Act has tiny if something to do with advertising a woman’s reproductive overall health and properly-getting.
The really notion of advertising “reproductive overall health and properly-being” as the rationale for enactment of the Reproductive Wellness Act is a “blind.” It is a pretext and an clear pretext at that. Ending a human life has absolutely nothing to do with advertising a woman’s reproductive overall health and properly-getting and ending a human life absolutely has absolutely nothing to do with advertising the reproductive overall health and properly-getting of a life slaughtered. Aborting a infant does not create life, it ends it. Ask oneself: what does ending life have to do with propagating life? Answer: absolutely nothing. New York’s Reproductive Wellness Act sanctions murder. That is all the Act does and on that score, it operates really, really properly.
While ostensibly designed to be constant with the typical established in the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe vs. Wade, the Reproductive Wellness Act is not constant with the Supreme Court ruling at all, as the Supreme Court ruling does not sanction abortion following the second trimester of pregnancy and the New York abortion law does. The New York abortion law lawfully permits abortion following the second trimester of pregnancy. The liberal web site, Politfact, citing the Sponsor of of New York’s Reproductive Wellness Act, says that the Act is in fact very comparable to the original abortion laws of New York:
“Previously, girls in New York could only get abortions following 24 weeks of pregnancy if their lives have been threatened,’ according to Justin Flagg, a spokesman for [the Act’s Sponsor, State Senator Liz] Krueger.
Below the new law, he stated, girls can also get an abortion following 24 weeks if their overall health is threatened or the fetus is not viable.
Jen Villavicencio, an ob-gyn in the Midwest who gives abortions, stated in a statement to PolitiFact that the post is ‘inaccurate.’
‘Abortions are not performed at 40 weeks on healthful, viable pregnancies,’ she stated. ‘Overwhelmingly, abortions that happen at this point in pregnancy are pregnancies exactly where lethal fetal anomalies have been diagnosed.’ ”
The Arbalest Quarrel has written extensively on the legal import of the Reproductive Wellness Act of 2019. See our March 29, 2019 write-up.
The statement by Jen Villavicencio is deceptive.
Flushing out from the language of the whole Act, not just portions of it, one particular sees a deliberate inconsistency which, on evaluation, tends to make abundantly clear that, contrary to the arguments of naysayers, abortion is legal at any point in pregnancy up to the really moment of birth, and, conceivably, even at the really point of reside birth.
Prior to enactment of the New York’s Reproductive Wellness Act, late term abortion was, except in uncommon situations, actionable as a really really serious crime: manslaughter. But, below the new law that Cuomo has aggressively pushed for, and which a compliant State Government in Albany, has enacted, and which Cuomo, with fantastic flourish and fanfare signed into law, abortion no longer exists as a crime in New York, below any situations. This reality is vital to understanding just how far removed the Reproductive Wellness Act is from New York’s original abortion laws. Think about: if the Reproductive Wellness Act merely permitted for lawful abortion exactly where a fetus is not viable, apart from a consideration of the life of the mother, alone, then a transform to the original law need to have only account for that one particular new situation. The Reproductive Wellness Act, although, is an substantial rewrite of abortion in New York, impacting a number of sections of the Consolidated laws of New York.
The one particular vital transform is that the crime of abortion has actually been stricken from the Consolidated laws of New York. What does that imply, then? What is the impact of striking ‘abortion’ from the Penal Code of the Consolidated laws of New York?
Due to the fact abortion is no longer a crime in New York, a viable human getting can be legally aborted up to the really moment of birth.
This tends to make New York one particular of only a handful of States, if there exists any other at all, that legally permits at-will abortion, up to the really moment of birth. This is a far cry from the typical set by the higher Court that has placed certain restrictions on late-term abortion. We can count on that New York will turn out to be the murder capital of the planet, as girls from all more than the Nation and from other Nations as properly will flock to New York to destroy their kid, and will not be hampered more than the Stage of pregnancy. That is not a stumbling block in New York.
Andrew Cuomo need to be ashamed of himself, not proud of his action, pushing for enactment of and signing the Reproductive Wellness Act into law. Furthermore, Cuomo’s stance on abortion is not only morally repugnant, it is inconsistent with his personal religious upbringing. Cuomo is a Roman Catholic, and nevertheless claims to be a practicing Roman Catholic. Roman Catholicism has a really clear stricture when it comes to the matter of abortion. The Catholic Church categorically condemns abortion and calls it out for what it is: the murder of an innocent human getting.
Cuomo, although does not appear to be bothered with any of this. He sees no inconsistency in his obtaining signed infanticide into law as Governor of New York, and remaining, in his personal eyes at least, a follower of Roman Catholicism.
As he suffers to clarify it, Cuomo sees his duties as Governor as distinct from these as a Roman Catholic. Cuomo says that, as Governor, his job needs him to uphold the Constitution, not to uphold the stricture of the Catholic Church. In his twisted, distorted logic, as cited in the Catholic web site, Patheos, Cuomo asserts:
“Thanks to the nation’s founders, no elected official is empowered to make private religious beliefs the law of the land. My oath of workplace is to the Constitutions of the United States and of the State of New York — not to the Catholic Church. My religion can not demand favoritism as I execute my public duties.”
This is not sound logic it is sophistry. Cuomo’s tacit reference to each the New York State Constitution and the Initial Amendment’s anti-establishment of religion clause of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, ostensibly to assistance infanticide and late-term at-will abortion of an innocent human life, is patently absurd.
Even though Pope Francis has handled New York’s Reproductive Wellness Act obliquely, gingerly, and naturally reluctantly, Cardinal Dolan has exhibited no such restraint, commenting straight and forcefully to the abortion Act and to Cuomo’s lackadaisical, dismissive attitude toward abortion, as the Arbalest Quarrel pointed out in a prior write-up, posted on the web site on May possibly 19, 2019. published write-up.
Apart from the Catholic Church’s condemnation of abortion, the U.S. Constitution, also, neither condones nor permits the murder of innocent human beings. Cuomo apparently knows this, and that is why he has not stopped at merely signing the Reproductive Wellness Act into law, horrible as that Act is—making late-term at-will abortion, lawful, in New York.
Apparently realizing that the Act will be challenged and attempting to stop a profitable Court challenge, Cuomo has proposed an Amendment to the New York Constitution, that efficiently raises infanticide to the level of a basic suitable in New York!
Cuomo exclaims with customary, disingenuous exuberance and bravado on the Governor’s web site:
“ ‘As Washington seeks to limit women’s rights, we seek to guard them, and as they threaten reproductive rights, I propose a constitutional amendment to create Roe v. Wade into the New York State Constitution to stop any attack on the suitable to decide on,’ Governor Cuomo stated. ‘We will not let the progress of the women’s movement to be stopped, and we need to seize this chance to bring the state and the nation forward and stand up for women’s overall health. Make no error, we will normally guard the suitable to decide on in New York.’”
How does Governor Cuomo seek to guard “women’s rights?” He does so by providing up as sacrifice, what ought to be received as the Divine Creator’s Greatest present to human beings: a getting designed in his personal image:
This sacrifice is to be perceived with decidedly much less fanfare, and most likely extra discomfort, than the human sacrifices performed by pagan religions of centuries previous! This is the Radical Left’s model for Liberal Democracy for our new Age of Enlightenment for a New Globe Order!
Cuomo, ever the politician, contorts and distorts each U.S. law and the Judeo-Christian Ethic in a naked try to make the U.S. Constitution and Western morality and ethics cohere with his personal warped view of both—one constant with the Marxist-Collectivist ideology. But that ideology is completely inconsistent with the import and purport of our Nation’s Constitution and that ideology is completely anathema to the Judeo-Christian ethical foundation of our Nation. Cuomo does not care. He is on an Unholy Crusade an Anti-Christ, prepared to remake the Globe in his personal ungodly image!
It is plain to see that Governor Cuomo and Senator Harris have not been and will not ever be constrained by law or logic or morality or even by basic widespread human decency. Arrogant and sanctimonious to the intense, obsessed with smug self-aggrandizement, avidly supported by a seditious Press, by Billionaire Globalists, and Hollywood celebrities, emboldened by a surge of radical Leftist social and political sentiment plaguing our Nation, obstreperous and defiant to criticism, flagrantly violating our Constitution and program of laws, violating all compunctions of custom, these Radical Left political animals are beyond all redemption.
Cuomo and Harris will gladly sell their soul to the Devil for private obtain, and, by all accounts, with all that we have to date noticed, they have currently accomplished so. Sadly, with the energy they wield, as recognized via their words and deeds, they may well really properly have the capacity to take the Nation and its citizenry down to perdition with them.
…but do not spend any consideration to all this for the reason that your legally owned guns are a considerably higher life-threatening danger.
