As I reported this morning, New York’s legislature has voted to allow abortion up ’til the moment of birth. Please read more about this significant development here.

In Syracuse, a small business owner closed his shop today to lament the vote.

Jon Speed — proprietor of The Book Scout — labeled Wednesday a “day of mourning” over the Reproductive Health Act.

He posted the following to Facebook:

“The book store is closed today. It is a day of mourning in New York. 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.”

See the many grateful comments here.

Jon attached a sign to the door of his store. It read:

“CLOSED TODAY. Today is a day of mourning in New York State. We will not collect sales tax today for a tyrannical government that murders babies. We will resume regular business tomorrow, collecting sales tax under duress. End Abortion Now.”
