New York, Abortion & Amazon
"Calling it a 'victory for all New Yorkers,' Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law to codify a woman’s right to abortion under state law and provide greater access to abortion across the state on Tuesday evening, Jan. 22."
New York's previous law allowed abortions after 24 weeks if a woman's "life" was at risk, but now it is deemed okay if the woman's "health" is endangered. (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-york-passes-abortion-bill-late-term-if-mothers-health-is-at-risk-today-2019-01-23/) What is the difference in the laws? "The intentional ambiguity of that last part allows for the destruction of the baby at any point during pregnancy should the doctor deem the mother’s wellbeing is at risk—physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age."

The New York legislators gave themselves a standing ovation after passing the bill. Twenty-three days later, there was much weeping in New York. Why? Consider this Scripture. Proverbs 11:1-3 says, "A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them."
Twenty-three days after the signing of that abortion bill, Amazon pulled out of their agreement to build a new headqurters in New York City. The decision was staggering, meaning the loss of 25,000+ jobs for New York, and billions of dollars of revenue.

The sad spiritual state of New York was already in the depths before this abortion bill was signed. The New York Department of Health records show that between the years 2012 and 2014, there were 285,127 abortions performed in New York. That is over 260 babies being murdered every day in New York. During those same years, there were only 237,499 live births. (https://www.faithwire.com/2019/01/23/new-york-senate-erupts-in-applause-after-passing-horrific-late-term-abortion-bill/)
That means that they murdered 47,628 more babies in New York than were born alive in those three years! We are witnessing a modern day holocaust, and who even seems to care?
Remember what the Bible says in Galatians 6:7-8? "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."
So the State of New York has no problem with murdering more babies a year than are even born? Well, guess what they are reaping? Murder rates went up 55% in New York City from January 1st, to February 17th, 2019, in comparison to the same time frame last year. (www.foxnews.com/us/murder-rate-rises-55-in-new-york-city) Adults voted to murder babies, and now the adults are being murdered at a higher rate. God's Word is true, you reap what you sow.
Why go on in your sin and rebellion against God? You face a horrible judgment. The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power."
Come to the Lord Jesus Christ today in repentance and faith.
