We recently heard the sounds of the celebration of evil. The sounds are haunting. The cheers and claps of New York state legislators as they celebrate the passing of the ironically named Reproductive Health Act. This legislation, which greatly expands women’s access to abortion, was signed into law by the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo. Amid concerns that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade, this new state law permits abortion to occur at any time during the nine months of pregnancy.
Our ears were again assaulted by the eerily calm tone of Virginia governor, Ralph Northam, discussing his support of legislation allowing babies born only to be aborted (infanticide).
Can anything good be said of a society that cheers on the slaughter of its weakest members? Do we dare celebrate the discarding of unwanted children made in the image of God?
