News last week that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) had signed the Reproductive Health Act eliminating restrictions on late-term abortion hit the pro-life world hard. Unfortunately, this was just the latest state to embrace such a measure and it likely won’t be the last.
As CBN noted, other states have already done it and more initiatives in other states are already in the works.

Alaska, Colorado, District of Colombia, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Vermont do not prohibit late-term abortions, either. But there are other states that allow exceptions for late-term abortions as well.
The notion that the battle for preborn babies can be won through political means alone can be officially called debunked. We’re not going to win for the rights of defenseless babies as long as we put all of our eggs in the political basket.
This is a cultural battle as well. We need to keep up the pressure by continuing to spread information about abortion. This includes informing as many people as possible about the human characteristics of preborn babies. When people are made aware of facts such as the baby’s heartbeat, their ability to feel pain, and the cognitive responses they have in the womb such as dreams, we’ll be able to change hearts and minds on this issue.
The pro-abortion crowd knows this as well, which is why their narrative has been shifting lately to say they agree the fetus has human-like qualities and they still don’t care. This is a dangerous path as it convinces left-leaning people to embrace abortion even if they believe they are killing a separate human life that’s currently living inside the mother.
Our votes aren’t having enough of an impact on America’s treatment of preborn babies. It’s imperative that we see this battle for what it really is: a fight that spans beyond politics and religion that requires a change in cultural understanding.
