One of the fundamental tenets of modern-day “liberalism,” at least in the Democratic-socialist sense, maintains that the death penalty is somehow “inhumane” as a punishment for criminals because capital punishment violates what it means to have a just society that’s committed to “humanism” and “equality.” And yet, the very same liberals who claim to support the dignity of human life in this sense somehow see nothing wrong with violently murdering unborn babies still in the womb, dubbing this evil act “reproductive rights.”
The blatant hypocrisy of Leftists in this regard couldn’t be more evident following the recent passage of the “Reproductive Health Act” in New York, which as we recently reported was signed into law with thunderous applause and cheers from the Left Cult. The new law not only allows women to legally get abortions at any time, including to term, but also contains provisions for babies born following botched abortions to be murdered after they leave the womb – a form of human genocide known as infanticide.
Interestingly enough, New York has been at the forefront of aggressively opposing the death penalty, which the far-left American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) says, “is applied in an unfair and unjust manner against people,” and thus should never be allowed. Many liberals, including the very same ones in New York who celebrated the passage of the Reproductive Health Act, also contend that the death penalty represents “cruel and unusual punishment” – which, again, they don’t apply to unborn babies who are murdered in the womb through abortion.
“Unlike conservatives, who follow the biblical ‘eye for an eye’ doctrine, liberals argue that the death penalty is merely state-sponsored murder that violates the human right to life,” writes Dr. Jill Silos-Rooney, Ph.D., for ThoughtCo.com. “They agree with the U.S. Catholic Conference that ‘we cannot teach that killing is wrong by killing,'” she adds, suggesting that liberals always take the moral high ground when it comes to a human being’s right to life.
But somehow this moral high ground quickly erodes once unborn human life enters the conversation, as the Liberal Mob doesn’t believe that unborn human life has any value whatsoever. Some liberals have even gone so far as to suggest that a developing baby in the womb is just a worthless clump of “medical waste” that pregnant women should be allowed to discard at will.
“Convicted criminals aren’t subjected to the death penalty in New York state, but now children up until the ninth month of pregnancy can be given lethal injections and poisoned to death,” says Lila Rose, president and founder of the national pro-life organization Live Action, pointing out the fact that, at the end of the day, liberals really couldn’t care less about human life. “This is no different than infanticide.”
Thankfully, not all New Yorkers believe that murdering human babies is a “right.” Jon Speed, owner of “The Book Scout” in Syracuse, for instance, reportedly closed his shop the day after the Reproductive Health Act was passed, in protest of his state’s decision to succumb to the Left Cult’s bloodlust for more dead babies.
“The book store is closed today. It is a day of mourning in New York,” read the sign on the door of Speed’s store following the bill’s passage. “In honor of the thousands of babies that will die in the years to come, we shall not be collecting sales tax for this tyrannical government today. We will on other days, under duress, but not today.”
