New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, delighted by the passage of the benign-sounding Reproductive Health Act – which would allow mothers to arbitrarily abort babies until birth – ordered the recently rebuilt World Trade Center and other New York landmarks to be all lit in pink.

Cuomo chortled, “The Reproductive Health Act is a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values. In the face of a federal government intent on rolling back Roe v. Wade and women’s reproductive rights, I promised that we would enact this critical legislation within the first 30 days of the new session – and we got it done. I am directing that New York’s landmarks be lit in pink to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”
Cuomo also said on Tuesday, “It’s bittersweet. There is a bitterness because we shouldn’t be here in the first place. We should not have a federal government that is trying to roll back women’s rights … This administration defies American evolution.”
Cuomo has been a long-standing champion of murdering the unborn and contemptuous of those people who are pro-life, saying they had “no place in the state of New York.” In 2014, he blustered that the reason for gridlock in his state was a “schism” within the Republican Party, snapping:
It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans. You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate. Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
According to the most recent statistics from the New York State Department of Health, 87,325 abortions occurred in the Empire State during 2016.
