Even the most nascent pro-lifers are outraged over New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's new extreme pro-abortion law. The bill, which he signed this week, allows abortion up to 24 weeks.
His signature was awarded with a standing ovation in the New York state assembly. It was met with derision just about everywhere else. Pro-life groups and figures on social media are sounding off on both the callousness of the legislation and the hypocrisy of the governor.
Let's be *very clear* about New York's new law permitting abortion for any reason up until birth that @NYGovCuomo & #prochoice Americans are celebrating:https://t.co/nQ6LfpAZ86 pic.twitter.com/escdfMifzj— Susan B. Anthony List (@SBAList) January 24, 2019
Cheering for the legalization of the murder of babies one moment before they enter the birth canal, as well as legalization of harming a fetus, is simply ghoulish. https://t.co/R79x1wJ3ZF— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) January 23, 2019

But champions the poisoning, dismemberment, and fatality of children in the womb during abortion. https://t.co/SmnUxTLAum
Football star Benjamin Watson agreed with these sentiments, writing, "it is a sad and evil day when the murder of our most innocent and vulnerable is celebrated with such overwhelming exuberance."
Joining them in their outrage was a small bookstore in upstate New York called Jon Speed. To protest the new legislation, the store closed up shop on Wednesday and tacked the following message on the door.

The book store is closed today, a day of mourning in NY. In honor of the thousands of babies that will die in the years to come, we shall not be collecting sales tax for this tyrannical government today. We will on other days, under duress, but not today pic.twitter.com/ZVJimiTGN0
The store owner posted the same message on his website.
As a result of their bold stand, Jon Speed Books is enjoying a sharp increase in traffic to both its website and store front.
Cuomo probably has no interest in heeding the above concerns, considering a few years ago he basically told pro-lifers they were not welcome in New York. This week he celebrated the new pro-abortion law by lighting the One World Trade Center in pink.
