    New York Law allows Anthony Hobson to kill his girlfriends baby

    Prosecutors initially included a charge of abortion against the Queens man arrested Friday in his pregnant girlfriend’s murder — but rescinded it because of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new Reproductive Health Act.

    Queens District Attorney Richard Brown sent out a press release saying Anthony Hobson, 48, would be charged with second-degree abortion as well as murder in Sunday’s fatal stabbing of Jennifer Irigoyen, 35.

    But a DA spokeswoman later told The Post that the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.”

    Cuomo signed the RHA into law on Jan. 22, the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

    The law removes abortion from the state’s criminal code and puts it into public health law.
    Accused murderer spared abortion charge thanks to Cuomo’s new law

    What a shame and outrage. It is obviously a CRIME to kill a fetus against the mother's wishes, except in New York. This law is so obviously wrong. It will allow criminals to commit abortions and not get punished. If a boyfriend doesn't want to be a father he can give his girlfriend for example misoprostol, and he would not be charged with a crime.

    RIP Jennifer Irigoyen and her unborn child.

    Couldn't they chose to prosecute under UVVA?

    Exactly.

    Prosecutors have always prosecuted using either feticide laws or the UVVA. They have never prosecuted using an abortion charge for someone killing a fetus against the wishes of a pregnant woman.

    But pretending they can’t prosecute because of an abortion law is just bogus.
    They are looking for headlines not a prosecution.

    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I see he's abandoned his thread.

    The state is right as the law sees it. How do you charge someone with homicide if the embryo does not have rights.

    I love the debate this case will envoke

    Why is it a crime?...according to the left the fetus isn't even a human. What exactly would the crime be? Killing cells?

    Exactly right. By current standards killing a viable fetus should not be murder

    Exactly. I've made this argument before. If an attacker takes a bat to a pregnant woman and the unborn dies...is it murder or simply assault? Following their definitions its just assault.
