Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, is under attack from religious leaders after he enacts a law that legalises abortion until birth for some reason. The Democratic governor ordered the One World Trade Center and other landmarks to be lit in Pink on Tuesday to celebrate the passing of the Reproductive Health Act.
Cuomo called it "a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values" on the occasion of Roe v.'S anniversary. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling of 1973, which legalized abortion in the United States. But Catholic bishops from New York beat him for the move only a few days after he had touted his Catholic faith during the state's address.

"Your endorsement of extreme abortion legislation completely contradicts the teachings of our Pope and our Church," wrote the Bishop of Albany, Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger, on Saturday in an open letter in the Evangelist. "I shudder when I think of the consequences that this law will entail." You have already made strong threats about the welcome message that you believe is not a claim to life support in our state Do you want to put your warning into law? A pro-life life one day to be a hate crime in the state of New York? "
New York was the first state to legalize abortion in 1970. Cuomo headed the 408-foot tower of the One World Trade Center, Governor Bridge Mario M. Cuomo, and the Kosciuszko Bridge. The Alfred E. Smith Building in Albany is to be lit pink to celebrate "this achievement, and to give a shining light to the rest of the nation. "
Under the Reproductive Health Act, non-physicians are now allowed to perform abortions and the procedure could be performed until the mother's due date. The previous law allowed abortions only after 24 weeks of pregnancy if a woman's life was at risk.
