Andrew Cuomo Defends Legalizing abortions up to birth.
Jesus had his Judas and we have ours. His name is Andrew Cuomo! Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God" (Mk. 10:14). And Cuomo says, let the little children (up to birth) die, at the hands of the abortionist, for the sake of money, greed and convenience!
“If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of stumbling blocks! Occasions for stumbling are bound to come, but woe to the one by whom the stumbling block comes! Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for, I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my Father in heaven (Mt 18: 2-10).

Researchers Diagnose Herod the Great
By AMANDA ONION. Jan. 25, 2002
The leader is probably most notorious for the "Massacre of the Innocents," as described in the gospel of Matthew. When, upon hearing that a new king of Jews had been born in Judea, Herod ordered the killing of all male infants of Bethlehem aged 2 years or younger...
The clues to Herod's diagnosis were listed in ancient history books and, according to Jan Hirschmann, the lead diagnosing doctor in the case, included "intense itching, painful intestinal problems, breathlessness, convulsions in every limb and gangrene of the genitals"... https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=98107&page=1
Herod did not fare very well after murdering the little children. Governor Cuomo has also cooperated in the murder of little children by defending legalized abortion. I wonder if Cuomo will fare any better than Herod? Cuomo says that he is not here to represent his Catholic faith and evidently, he is not here to represent the words of Jesus, either.

Should Governor Andrew Cuomo be Excommunicated? George J. Marlin, MONDAY JANUARY 28, 2019
Governor Andrew Cuomo is very different than his father, Governor Mario Cuomo. The elder Cuomo tried to be St. Thomas More and Machiavelli at one and the same time.
In his famous 1984 Notre Dame speech on “Religious Belief and Public Morality,” the More-Cuomo said “The Catholic Church is my spiritual home. My head is there and my hope. . . .[and] I accept the Church’s teaching on abortion.” But the Machiavelli-Cuomo gave himself an “out” by claiming that as a public official, he could not impose his private religious views on the rest of society.
Cuomo uses or spurns the Church when it suits his political ends. While he discarded Church teaching on abortion, he embraced and praised Pope Francis’s message concerning the needy and the marginalized. And when the pope visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral on September 24, 2015, Cuomo made sure he was in a front pew. It was great political theater for the governor...
President Trump on Abortion, State of the Union Address 2019: "There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.
These are living, feeling, beautiful, babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb. Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.
And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God."
"He [John the Baptist] will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb" (Lk. 1:14-15). The Lord called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name (Isa. 49:1).
Governor Cuomo, by making himself the enemy of the little ones, who have yet to be born, has made himself the enemy of God. In so doing, he has become our enemy as well. How should we respond to our enemies? The human temptation of course is to hate our enemies; however, Jesus tells us to love and pray for our enemies.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Mt. 5:43-44).
Jesus told Saint Faustina that the greatest of sinners is worthy of the greatest mercy. And so, let's pray for Governor Cuomo, that he may have a change of heart, and turn to the mercy of God.
