Pro-Life Organization Rallies in Times Square to Counter Cuomo’s Abortion Law: ‘Here We Are’

Times Square in New York City is being flooded with pro-life advocates as an organization looks to combat the message of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s late-term abortion bill passed this year.

Focus on the Family — a Christian conservative organization – is hosting the “Alive From New York” event on Saturday filled with speeches from abortion survivors, music, and live 4-D ultrasounds.

The organization’s president, Jim Daly, told Fox News they hope that people “will look up to the screens and lift-up in prayer every abortion-minded woman.”

“They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the picture of a baby is actually of inestimable worth. It’s a snapshot of the future and a million possibilities yet to come.”

Watch the video below:

Vice President Mike Pence took notice of the pro-life organizations’ efforts to spread the message about the “miracle of life,” tweeting on Saturday:

“As Democrat Governors in NY & VA advocate for late term abortion & even infanticide – & Democrats in Congress refuse to allow a vote on the Born-Alive bill – TODAY in Times Square an ultrasound will be shown for all to see, demonstrating the miracle of life.”

Earlier this year, the New York governor signed a late-term abortion bill, which allows an abortion up to the moment of birth if a women’s health is at risk. He later directed the One World Trade Center’s spire to be lite pink in celebration of its signing into law.

March for Life president Jeanne Mancini told Fox News that the 4-D ultrasounds “provide a window into the womb.” She added, “It’s always been my belief that showing life as it is in its inherent beauty is so attractive, and that’s what really changes people’s hearts and minds.”

“We wanted to make a statement. Gov. Cuomo has said something along the lines of pro-lifers aren’t welcome in New York,” Mancini said

“Well, here we are in Times Square, and life should be welcomed wherever we are, and from what we’ve heard pro-life New Yorkers are really appalled by this legislation, and they want to protect the dignity of the unborn and make their voices heard,” she added.

Watch the video below:

Cuomo’s signing of the late-term abortion bill in the state of New York sparked outrage from President Donald Trump, who weighed in on it State of the Union address earlier this year.

“Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.”

The president also called on Congress to prohibit late-term abortion and “work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.”

There has been multiple times a person murders a pregnant woman, he can be charged with 2 counts of murder. If that is the case why are not people (doctors, women) charged with murder for taking the life of a unborn child, why as a society are we allowing this double standard, Murder is Murder is Murder there is no 2 ways this can or should be looked at!!!

Abortion in any form is MURDER, starting at conception. All of us developed that way and terminating it is absolute MURDER and should be punishable to the full extent of the law. Those that aborts or condones abortion should have been aborted. For sure they would have liked that.

Let me repeat a point I made earlier: people who want their children murdered, in vitro, after birth, etc. really should not be parents. They are stupid, selfish, and careless. All traits NOT associated with good citizenship.

Think of it as natural selection. Give them what they want. Just like bussing illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. They demanded it. Let them have it.

In some ways I support abortion, including infanticide.

Consider that these are the children of people too stupid/careless to use contraception. (blah, blah, failures of contraception) Whatever. They also waited UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE to do so.

We already have too many stupid, useless people. Also consider the QUALITY of people who would murder their own children.

Bu…rapes, incest. Really? Show me the # of abortions resulting from those. Seriously. Use a reputable source.
