This morning, NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer had been scheduled to speak to the Family Planning Advocates’ 31st Annual Conference. The abortion racketeers are seeking more money. And he was preparing to push legislators to do their bidding–before he was forced to cancel his appearance.
As payback to his abortion industry supporters, Spitzer had supported “the Reproductive Health & Privacy Protection Act (RHAPP)” under the guise of “codifying Roe v. Wade.” It would:
* Allow non-doctors to perform abortions, including a dentist, a social worker, or a health care practitioner.
* Let girls as young as 12 obtain abortions throughout all 9 months of pregnancy without ever having to tell their parents.
* Force health practitioners or Catholic hospitals to lose their medical licenses if they don’t perform abortions since they would be denying women the “fundamental right” of an abortion.

This is only the beginning. The Catholic Church in NY is already slamming Spitzer and New Yorkers for Parental Rights, an independent, newly formed group in opposition to the bill is about to launch a statewide campaign with ads, phone calls and a YouTube video to make sure RHAPP never makes it out of the legislature. It is currently in the State Senate.
There’s more info on the bill here.
Perhaps today’s news will knock the wind out of its sails.
That would be a life-saving silver lining.
