The nursing home deaths in New York and what is transpiring in Afghanistan are the result of the reckless and heartless decisions of two men that we all knew had a history of promoting death. Of the two major political parties in America, one promotes death and the other life. The Democratic Party has for decades promoted abortion-on-demand and now abortion up to the moment of live birth and in some cases abortion after live birth if the child survives the abortion procedure. Both of the men in question are Democrats. Both of them were raised Catholic. At some point in each of their lives they turned away from valuing human life to promoting death.
In January 2019, when then-Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the most extreme abortion legislation into law, as a man who was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith, he wasn’t embarrassed or ashamed for signing the legislation — he celebrated it. In his joyful exuberance for the future killing of innocents, he ordered that several of New York City’s landmarks be lit up in pink including the spire atop the newly rebuilt One World Trade Center building standing in close proximity where thousands of Americans and foreign nationals were murdered when the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001, after al Qaeda terrorists flew passenger jets into each of the towers.
Now it’s been revealed by the new governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, that her disgraced predecessor Andrew Cuomo lied about the numbers of deaths from COVID-19 in New York State. On the day that Cuomo left office, he reported some 43,400 deaths from COVID-19 across the state. Hochul corrected the number upward to 55,395. In March 2020, Andrew Cuomo, as governor issued an executive order sending vulnerable senior citizens with co-morbidities and weakened immune systems into nursing homes that had previously been identified as environments where the COVID virus spread rapidly and pervasively and where seniors in documented cases on the west coast had quickly contracted the virus and died. When those New York seniors quickly contracted the virus and subsequently died, Cuomo also underreported the number of nursing home deaths by more than 50%.
