Wow.

Maybe you’ve already seen it? New York state recently passed legislation that expands access to abortion in that state – and there’s a video going viral of the lawmakers standing and actually cheering its passage.

Yes, cheering the fact that more children will be legally killed in their state (you can view the video below).

The video has inspired many strong reactions from pro-lifers, including Dr. Robert P. George, law professor at Princeton and well-known Catholic.

“Until a few minutes ago, I had never felt physically ill as a result of watching something on television,” he wrote on Facebook. “But the video footage of New York legislators applauding and cheering the monstrous late-term abortion bill they passed yesterday on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade literally nauseated me.”

The sheer inhumanity of applauding an act licensing and facilitating the killing of six, seven, eight, even nine month babies–babies who could be delivered and survive; babies with fully formed faces, eyelashes, fingernails; babies who hear and are familiar with their mother’s voice–turned my stomach.

How can so many be utterly blind to such gross and manifest evil? These people were cheering.”

Here’s his full comment on Facebook:

What kind of people are we? How can so many be utterly blind to such gross and manifest evil? These people were cheering. They were *cheering*. Where did this fanatical commitment to ensuring that the lives of children in the womb count for nothing–indeed less than nothing–come from? How did this contempt for human life insinuate itself into people’s hearts?”
