I had heard previously about the recent abortion law passed in New York opening up abortion on demand until the moment of birth, and I already thought that sounds really awful. Pulling into a parking lot listening to the radio I heard a little more about what is in this law. Apparently spelled out in this law, buried near the end is specific wording allowing for babies that survive the abortion process to be denied medical care, comfort, nourishment, attention of any beneficial kind.
Hearing this I quickly parked to stop the car as I felt very sick to my stomach.

So basically you can just step on its head when it pops out...no biggie.

How progressive.

Makes one wonder how far this retroactive abortion standard will be taken. Isn’t a three year old child just as much an inconvenience to it’s mother as a newborn? It can’t feed or dress itself. There’s near endless expenses.

Postpartum abortion, it's all the rage.

It is all fun and games until this law runs into the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, which was upheld with Gonzales v. Carhart (2007) by the Supreme Court.

Nope. States rights. They are important to leftists.

This law does not allows 'abortion on demand'. It simply changes New York's laws requiring that a mothers life be in danger to her health being in danger.

I cannot find anything in it that allows for a live, healthy baby to be allowed to die from neglect.

But Jimmy, according to you, that's federal law and has nothing to do with state laws. The state is free to do as it pleases.

You are correct. It is a state's peragative according to the Constitution. But the reality is that it will end up in court and the law and Supreme Court precedent will be the deciding factor.
