Ever since Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was published by Politico on May 2, 2022, there has been a flurry of legislative activity amongst pro-abortion New York politicians. In a sickening display of devotion to the abortion industry, the abortion-friendly pols have introduced bill after bill that would help cement New York’s status as an abortion destination for pregnant women from pro-life states. However, no one in Albany has been more persistent in drawing attention to their abortion advocacy than Gov. Kathy Hochul.
Gov. Hochul has announced her support for a constitutional amendment to enshrine the so-called “right” to abortion within the Empire State’s founding document. At this writing, the amendment has not yet been introduced. Strangely, however, Gov. Hochul has already found the time to create and air a television advertisement boasting of her support for the as-yet-unreleased amendment. In the ad, Gov. Hochul vows that she “‘will always protect reproductive rights and keep abortion access safe in New York.’”
At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we lament the sad state of affairs in Albany in which many politicians draw attention to their enthusiastic embrace of evil. We pray that the heart of Gov. Hochul would change, and she would be filled with compassion for the unborn children of New York.
