Bishop Calls NY Abortion Law Cuomo’s ‘Death Star’

January 24, 2019

In an open letter this week to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Catholic bishop of Albany said that New York’s Reproductive Health Act (RHA) “is nothing less than a license to kill a pre-born child at will.”

Your “advocacy of extreme abortion legislation is completely contrary to the teachings of our pope and our Church,” Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger wrote, calling the legislation Cuomo’s “Death Star.” After the passage of the act, many Catholics have been urging the bishops to formally excommunicate Andrew Cuomo, himself a Catholic, from the Church.
