2015 legislative news
Euthanasia/suicide bills Compassionate Choices and Death with Dignity were
sponsored by Amy Paulin and Linda Rosenthal in the Assembly and Diane Savino
and Bonacic in the Senate. The two suicide euthanasia bills have been reconciled
into one. If they do not come up this year for a vote, they have all of 2016 to be
voted on. Cuomo is likely to let it pass. Sandy Galef had a Euthanasia Seminar
with four experts in the town of Cortlandt 10/14/15. Stewart-Cousins, Thompson
and Klein are likely proponents of the bill. Orange County
and any other areas in his district
must lobby Bonacic
by letters, e-mails, phone calls and in person for him to rescind/repudiate the bill. If not
he must be primaried.
In D.C. Representative Hanna from NYS
voted against defunding Planned Parenthood. People in his district need to
Governor Cuomo, like Paterson and Spitzer before him, intends to enshrine the protections of
Roe vs. Wade into New York State law. The
Governor believes that the Gonzalez v Carhart
decision of the U.S. Supreme Court (April 18, 2007), which
upheld a ban on partial-birth abortion, threatens the
future of a "woman’s right to choose and her
right to privacy."
Concerns with the Governor’s Program Bill include:
It seeks to establish a
"fundamental right of privacy"
within New York State law, encompassing the right to
"choose or refuse contraception" and the
right to "bear a child or to terminate a
pregnancy," as if both "choices" were
equally valid and worthy of support. As a
"fundamental right," the state would have to
take proactive steps to guarantee that abortion is
available and protected.
It seeks to ensure that
abortions are legal throughout all nine months of
if they are deemed necessary to protect the life or
"health" of the mother. Courts have
interpreted the term "health" so broadly as
to include social, economic and emotional distress
factors, rendering the term meaningless.
Current state law says abortions are legal in New York
through 24 weeks of pregnancy (Article 125 Penal Law),
but outlawed after that unless they are necessary to
save a woman’s
Because of flawed court decisions like
Roe v. Wade,
this law cannot be enforced, so abortion is already
legal in New York through the third trimester of
pregnancy for reasons of life or "health."
The Governor’s plan ignores the state's legitimate
interest in protecting the life of fully formed
third-trimester children in the womb.
It would allow
post-viability abortions to be performed on an
out-patient basis in clinics
that go virtually unregulated by public health
authorities, endangering both women and unborn
children. Moreover, the Governor’s bill would not
allow for the type of support facilities necessary to
assist a baby who might be born alive in the course of
It would remove New York’s
abortion-related laws from the criminal code
and place them in the public health law, leaving
regulation of abortion solely up to the medical
profession. The elimination of all references to the
homicide laws is part and parcel of a national
abortion advocacy campaign that seeks to deny that
abortion is the killing of a human being.
It seeks to make abortion
virtually immune from any state regulation
or restriction. Reasonable regulations such as
parental notification for abortions performed on minor
children, informed consent for pregnant women
regarding the risks and alternatives to the procedure,
and restrictions on taxpayer funding would not be
permissible under the Governor’s plan.
Yet all such regulations are completely permissible
Roe v Wade
and subsequent U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and a
majority of states have enacted them. Thirty-five
states require parental involvement in a child’s
abortion decision, 32 states require counseling before
an abortion is performed, and 32 states restrict
Medicaid funding of abortion.
It would repeal the
requirement in current law that says only doctors can
The Governor’s bill would allow
health care practitioner to perform the procedure: a
dentist, nurse, podiatrist, social worker, physician
assistant, chiropractor, midwife, even an optometrist.
This dangerous and extreme change clearly puts women's
health at risk, and mirrors a national abortion strategy
to expand the scope of various health care practitioners
to specifically include abortion.
It seeks to eliminate
conscience protection in current law
by requiring every institution licensed or funded by
the state – including religious hospitals, agencies
and schools – to support abortion, provide coverage
for abortion, or to perform abortions. The Governor’s
bill declares that "the state shall not
discriminate" against the exercise of the
fundamental right to abortion in the "provision
of benefits, facilities, services or information."
It seeks to suppress all
efforts to enact an "Unborn Victims of Violence
by refusing to recognize the unborn child as a second
victim of the crime in cases of assault against
pregnant women. The Governor’s bill would
specifically label such crimes as causing "serious
physical injury to the woman," refusing even to
acknowledge the unborn, viewing him only as an
appendage of his mother’s body. Moreover, the crime
of "serious physical injury to the woman"
would only apply if the child died as a result of the
incident -- with no criminal penalty applied if an
attacker caused serious but non-fatal injuries to the
For the sake of pregnant women and their unborn children,
the Governor’s Program Bill must be strongly opposed.
I am sick and tired of
my money being used to kill innocent pre-born children.
Your policy condones and subsidizes fetal girls and
boys being torn limb from limb, burned alive by
saline, painfully poisoned and asphyxiated by RU486,
and partially born only to have their heads punctured
and their brains sucked out. I demand that this be
stopped. This blood bath is not what tax money is
meant to accomplish. NY is
It's crucial that he have this message from all of you
as soon as possible. Note: Letters and postcards carry
more impact than e-mails. Your voice really does count.
You're not only doing this for yourself, but also for
the unborn and the millions of women who have been
scarred by the tragedy of abortion.
