LIFE NEWS – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this week signed into law a bill that legalizes abortions up to birth. While that has been the main focus of the legislation, the new law also revokes medical care for babies who are born alive after botched abortions.
While Congress and legislatures in other states have tried to passed laws called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which require doctors to provide appropriate medical care and treatment for babies who are born alive after a failed abortion, the state of New York is moving the other direction. New York now essentially allows infanticide.
The law Gov. Cuomo signed repealed section 4164 of NY’s Public Health Law, which mandated medical care for any baby born alive during an abortion.
Does this mean that babies will just be left to die in new York at abortion clinics if they somehow survive the abortion procedure? As Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, tells LifeNews, the answer is yes.
“This law guarantees it, sweeping away a large chunk of the penal codes that protected abortion survivors.”
