"Mario Cuomo's abortion argument is a bloody legacy"
Cuomo claimed that day he shared the pro-life goal of moving America towards an end to abortion. But his speech — and his years in politics — did the opposite.
Cuomo’s Notre Dame argument became a pillar of the Democratic Party. Catholic Democrats pointed to Cuomo in declaring themselves “personally opposed to abortion,” but politically pro-choice. The governor had written a blank check for politicians to don the mantle of the Church, but ignore its hard and fast teachings.
With that blank check in hand, Cuomo’s party became extreme on abortion. Pro-life speakers were effectively banned from the podium at Democratic Conventions. The current Democratic President raised money off his defense of partial birth abortion, and opposed state laws to protect children who survive abortion attempts. The abortion lobby is at the heart of the Democratic fundraising apparatus.
And on other Catholic teachings, Cuomo’s party has no use anymore for tolerance, now trying to force nuns to provide contraception coverage, and curb the free exercise of religion when it clashes with elite sexual morality.
Read Cuomo’s speech closely, and you see the seeds of this intolerance — this compulsion cloaked in the rhetoric of pluralism. Cuomo in 1984 wasn’t merely defending legal abortion — he was defending taxpayer-funded abortion. The political issue on his plate in Albany wasn’t an abortion ban, it was abortion coverage under Medicaid.
In Catholic terms, the policy decision to spend taxpayers' money on abortions is “formal cooperation in evil.” Forcing people to do so against their will is hardly “help[ing] create conditions under which all can live with a maximum of dignity and with a reasonable degree of freedom,” as Cuomo said a good statesman should do in a pluralistic society.
In 2014, his son, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life… have no place in the state of New York.”
Guess it's a good thing I don't live in New York anymore, if that governor thinks I'm "extreme" for supporting the right to life for all.

"After Abortion,...run by Emily Peterson and Annie Banno, two women who had abortions in the 1970s, ...tries to avoid the political tug-of-war that tends to come with this turf. They concentrate instead on discussing the troubling personal effects of abortion on the mothers." ~ Eric Scheske, Godspy contributing editor, in NC Register's "Signs of Life in the Blogosphere", 2/2006
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."
