If you haven’t heard the shocking news, on Tuesday, New York’s legislature voted to allow abortion up until the moment of birth. Please see more about that here and here.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo — who has called the death penalty “morally indefensible” — signed the bill into law.

Cuomo then directed the World Trade Center and other landmarks to be lit pink in celebration.

Fox News reports:

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, along with the Catholic Bishops in the state signed a letter condemning the bill, saying “our beloved state has become a more dangerous one for women and their unborn babies.”

“Our governor and legislative leaders hail this new abortion law as progress. This is not progress,” the bishops wrote. “Progress will be achieved when our laws and our culture once again value and respect each unrepeatable gift of human life, from the first moment of creation to natural death.”

Prominent Catholic laypeople — such as Dr. Taylor Marshall, First Things magazine editor Matthew Schmitz, and author John Zmirak — are now calling for Cuomo’s ex-communication.

Thomas Peters posted perhaps the most poignant and terrible observation:
