New York’s abortion ‘barbarism’ having ripple effect

New York’s new abortion law, which effectively allows the procedure until birth, already is having impact.

A prosecutor dropped one of the charges that had been brought against a man suspected of stabbing and killing a pregnant woman in Queens on Feb. 3, noted the American Center for Law and Justice.

“We told you that New York’s barbaric abortion law would have real life (and death) consequences. Unfortunately, we’re already seeing the first evidence of that,” the organization, which has demanded from the state information about the abortion lobby’s influence on the law, said ACLJ.

After the law was signed Jan. 22 by Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Virginia tried to pass a similar law. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam drew attention when, in defense of the bill, he advocated infanticide.

ACLJ said that in the Queens case, an “unspeakably savage crime that’s hard to even comprehend, let alone describe, will now go unpunished.”

“A man attacked his pregnant girlfriend in New York, reportedly dragging her out into the public vestibule of their apartment building and stabbing her repeatedly in the stomach as neighbors say she pled for the life of her unborn baby,” ACLJ said.

“This brutal murder of Jennifer Irigoyen, a real estate agent, fitness instructor, and mother to another young child, was captured on surveillance camera. Neighbors say they rushed out to help her after the assailant fled, and say she gasped for breath as they asked who attacked her.”

Irigoyen was five months pregnant when she died.

The New York Post reported the suspected killer targeted the 35-year-old woman’s stomach.

“The victim – a classically trained pianist who sold luxury homes and also worked as a professional Latin ballroom dancer and Zumba instructor – was stabbed several times in her neck and the left side of her stomach, police sources said,” according to the report.

Her boyfriend, Anthony Hobson, surrendered shortly later to authorities and was charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, illegal abortion and criminal possession of a weapon.

District Attorney Richard Brown called it a “heinous crime,” ACLJ said.
