New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan is refusing to excommunicate Governor Andrew Cuomo from the Catholic Church despite the fact he just enshrined into state law one of the most radical abortion measures in United States history, ensuring that women have a “fundamental right” to kill their babies at any time throughout the pregnancy if an authorized abortionist determines in “good faith” that it would “protect the patient’s life or health.” Under the new law, a woman in New York can literally abort her baby just one day prior to its due date.After New York enacted the abortion law, Catholics across the country immediately demanded that Cardinal Timothy Dolan excommunicate Cuomo from the Catholic Church, arguing his actions were too egregious to be met with a simple statement of condemnation. Two of Cardinal Dolan’s colleagues, Bishop Richard Stika of Knoxville and Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, were emphatic in their calls for the excommunication of Cuomo.
“Someone asked me today if I would issue an excommunication of a Catholic Governor under my jurisdiction if the Governor did the same as in New York,” Stika tweeted Thursday afternoon, LifeSiteNews reports. “I think I might do it for any Catholic legislator under my jurisdiction who voted for the bill as well as the Governor.”
“Enough is enough,” continued Stika. “Excommunication is to be not a punishment but to bring the person back into the Church. It’s like medicine for them. But this vote is so hideous and vile that it warrants the act. But thankfully I am not in that position. Very sad.”

@another vet: Exactly. This is why most of our criminals and mass killers are liberals; they have no respect for the rights, liberties or lives of others; anything that gets in the way of their urges can appropriately be eliminated. Cuomo has codified it.
@Deplorable Me: Kamala’s town hall notes: I’ll take away your doctor, your guns, your wealth, your free market, your wall. Any questions? oh resist and we will come and take it by force.
@kitt: Also, “I’ll do to the entire country what I did to Willie Brown.”
I fixed it for you
Do you think a fetus is alive?
Do you think a fetus is life?
When does a fetus become an infant?
Greggie Gullible has no idea. All he knows is that the left tells him an unborn child is just a clump of cells (or some other non-descript excuse) and that only the woman (mother) has a right to life.
He ignores that at 22 weeks of gestation, an unborn child can have a blood transfusion or even heart surgery. Why would any doctor perform such procedures on a non-human?
Science has shown us that life begins at conception and it is at that moment, the unborn child begins its process of development into a full human being just as a toddler develops into an adult. It can never be anything else. Roe is bad law. Even those Constitutional scholars who are pro-death for the unborn admit to that. But Roe is the sacred cow of the left. What the left cannot achieve legislatively it will achieve with the decision of nine unelected jurists in black robes.
@retire05: RvW isnt law, its a decision of a court separation of powers, the Legislative branch, not judicial or executive branches make laws. It is an entirely unconstitutional method to have the states follow court decisions, the unconstitutional law should force legislature to repeal the law or re-legislate it. As marriage, healthcare and abortion are not enshrined into the constitution it would be up to States to make laws regarding those matters. A totally lost concept to those that want to centralize all power to the federal government.
@retire05: Crap like THIS will be the demise of Roe v. Wade. Many conservatives want to kill it and such overkill, so to speak, will be just the impetus they needs. It just has to get to the Supreme Court.
Now Virginia is proposing the same thing. Maybe the left wants to force the issue before Bader is proven dead. After that and Trump puts another Constitutionalist on the bench, Roe v. Wade is in serious jeopardy.
@Greg: Just because someone is powerless, without a voice doesn’t mean that life is disposable. The way Mr. Greg thinks slavery would still be alive and kicking in this country.
