Prolife Push Continues as Session Nears End

This week, Governor Cuomo and the abortion industry concocted a new scheme in which they would amend the abortion expansion bill to state that partial-birth abortions would not be allowed. Abortion advocates hoped that by taking this step, they would woo Republican senators to support late-term abortion expansion.

Because the Governor’s bill has nothing to do with partial-birth abortion and the proposed amendment would be meaningless, pro-life organizations moved swiftly to oppose this strategy.

Thankfully, it appears that state senators have not been taken in by the Governor’s latest ploy, and the Albany Times-Union (no friend of the pro-life movement) reported that an “attempt to make an abortion provision more palatable to Senate Republicans sputtered through the Capitol like a loose balloon Thursday before falling flat as lawmakers scattered for the weekend.”
