Legalized Genocide

New York has supported and furthered genocide by legalizing abortion at any point during the pregnancy, even up to the birth of the child.

The Democratic Governor of NY, Andrew Cuomo, “signed into law the Reproductive Health Act, which, among other things, takes the word ‘abortion’ out of the state’s criminal code, ensures that doctors and clinics who provide abortions can’t be charged and codifies that abortions can be performed after 24 weeks if the fetus is not viable or the mother’s health is at serious risk.” (CNN). 224 more words

What Was Then, Is Still Now: A City Upon a Hill of Oppression

The author of last year’s blog post spoke on how today’s American public is generally ignorant of the original “fantasy of religious superiority and human inequality,” inspired by Winthrop’s “City Upon the Hill.” However, I feel as though subconsciously, it is exactly those ideas that dangerously fill many Americans with pride when imagining their beloved, “City Upon a Hill.” 504 more words
