Pink or blue? was my first thought when I saw Cuomo’s directive. He chose pink to celebrate the extension of abortion to after viability, but it seems as if New York’s landmarks are lit up to commemorate the passing of untold nameless ones. This is what Cuomo and America’s progressives call a “bright light forward”—a land where de facto infanticide is lustily practiced to the wild cheers of politicians running for office on promises to defend the little guy. There is no other word to describe it: This is evil, and there can be no parley with the people who joyously trample on the children in the name of their freedom.”
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo directed that One World Trade Center’s 408-foot spire, the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, the Kosciuszko Bridge and the Alfred E. Smith Building in Albany be lit in pink this evening, January 22, to celebrate the signing of the Reproductive Health Act. Photos of One World Trade Center’s spire lit in pink tonight are available here.
“The Reproductive Health Act is a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values,” Governor Cuomo said. “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.”

Andrew Cuomo: If you are pro Life, get out of New York, You Are Not Welcome!
In 2014, the abortion extremist publicly proclaimed on the Capitol Pressroomthat pro-lifers are not welcome to live in New York.
You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. 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.
