Elections matter. This is the result of republicans losing control of the senate last November. The act had passed in the Democrat-controlled Assembly multiple times, but was held up in recent years by a Republican-controlled Senate.
The New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo was gleeful on Tuesday after the New York legislature passed the Reproductive Health Act which basically allows mothers to
murder abort their babies up to birth. Why on Tuesday? Because on Tuesday it was the 46th anniversary of Roe v Wade. Governor Cuomo was so ecstatic that he ordered that the spire of One World Trade Center, the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, the Kosciuszko Bridge and the Alfred E. Smith Building in Albany all be lit in pink on Tuesday night. The bill is the next step of the progressives trying to make abortion a fundamental human right displacing "life" as the fundamental right.

The passed legislation omits the current limitation on abortion in the NY state, which is set at 24 weeks. The Reproductive Health Act states that "every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion."
The bill reads: "A health care practitioner licensed, certified, or authorized under title eight of the education law, acting within his or her lawful scope of practice, may perform an abortion when, according to the practitioner's reasonable and good faith professional judgment based on the facts of the patient's case: the patient is within twenty-four weeks from the commencement of pregnancy, or there is an absence of fetal viability, or the abortion is necessary to protect the patient's life or health," reads the legislation.
Meaning, as long as the practitioner is acting in good faith, it is ok to murder a child.
According to Times Union "The bill also removes abortion from the definition of homicide, and from the penal code entirely."
One commentor on Disqus put it this way: "I suppose this should not be surprising that the left would go from approving aborting a three month old fetus because "it's not really a human being" to "it can be aborted right up to the due date". They've become so emboldened in their evil doings that they don't even try to justify it anymore. Think of the innocent lives lost because of this "legislation"! Please, everyone out there who still has morals, remember that the only thing evil needs to flourish is for good men or women to DO NOTHING!"
