There’s nothing more alive than news about death. All I’m seeing everywhere are articles and posts about the Reproductive Health Bill.
There are many things I dislike about NY. This is in a league of its own. Abortion is the major cause of death in the US. There are more abortions annually than deaths from disease, guns, cars..ANYTHING.
Just stop and think about that. Over 700,000 reported abortions a year.
1917 abortions a day.
80 abortions an hour.
There is an abortion MORE than once every minute in the US.
At least one abortion had taken place since you started reading this and that numbers about to rise.
NY has passed a bill that allows abortion up to birth. This isn’t ‘reproductive health’ anymore.
Abortion has been around as long as mankind has been around. It used to be illegal and dangerous. Women died and I don’t want us to go back to those days.
I personally find abortion horrific but I don’t think it should be unavailable. I do however think we’re putting emphasis on the wrong problem. The problem shouldn’t be how to we allow people to terminate unwanted pregnancies. It should be how do we stop the unwanted pregnancies in the first place. New York and every other state have this ass backwards. The emphasis should be on better and more accessible birth control.
I was horrified to learn abortions were available up to 26 weeks. I know babies born at 24 weeks who are perfect. Once a child can potentially survive outside the womb, it’s past the point where it should be aborted. This new bill goes even further and frankly, it’s murder. There are people who would argue that it’s murder before that point and truthfully, I agree, however, as I have already stated. I do not want to see abortion being illegal and dangerous again.
This bill horrifies me. I have gone onto the NY Senate website and voted against which is my right as a citizen. I have today also contacted my Senator and my Representative and expressed my opinions to them.
Here is a list of those who voted aye to this bill.

If one of them is your senator you can contact them via this site to let them know your opinion.
We vote for these people. They are there to represent us. They are not there to do as they damn well please. It’s time we the people, reminded them of that fact.
There have been 47 abortions since I started writing this. How many have there been whilst you read this?
How much better and cheaper would birth control have been?
