* Candidates with an asterisk next to their name have been endorsed by pro-abortion political action organizations such as WCLA (Westchester Coalition for Legal Abortion), NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League), Planned Parenthood Inc., and Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic.

Preferred candidates, while not pro-life or entirely pro-life have shown an independence of opinion on many pro-life positions and are not the pro-abortion zealots that WCLA and Planned Parenthood endorse, for example: first amendment rights for pro-lifers, abortion-on-demand throughout nine months of pregnancy, sex selection abortions, parental notification, life support for babies born alive as a result of an abortion, experimentation on live aborted babies, mandatory reporting of suspected cases of rape & incest (PP repeatedly blocked this NY State legislation), partial birth abortion, remote abortions, non-doctor abortions, clinic safety inspections, informed consent, alternatives information, conscience clauses, decriminalization of illegal abortions, fetal pain legislation, making criminally negligent abortions administrative offenses, paying for abortions with the public's money, policies that encourage abortion and increase the number and frequency of abortion (45% of abortions are repeat abortions), public financing of, and grants to, abortionist corporations and political groups agitating for more abortions, etc.

Fact Sheet

Governor Cuomo, like Paterson and Spitzer before him, intends to enshrine the protections of Roe v 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 "womanís right to choose and her right to privacy."

Concerns with the Governorís 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 pregnancy 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 womanís life. 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 Governorís 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 Governorís bill would not allow for the type of support facilities necessary to assist a baby who might be born alive in the course of an abortion.

  • It would remove New Yorkís 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 Governorís plan.

    Yet all such regulations are completely permissible under 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 childís 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 perform abortions. The Governorís bill would allow any 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 Ė including religious hospitals, agencies and schools Ė to support abortion, provide coverage for abortion, or to perform abortions. The Governorís 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 Act" by refusing to recognize the unborn child as a second victim of the crime in cases of assault against pregnant women. The Governorís 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 motherís 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 child.



For the sake of pregnant women and their unborn children,
the Governorís Program Bill must be strongly opposed.

SAMPLE CORRESPONDENCE

Andrew Cuomo,

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 broke.

Sincerely,
............
