Beware the Word ‘Tweak’

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

Word is that Andrew Cuomo is amenable to a “tweaking” of the Women’s Equality Act that would alleviate concerns about partial-birth abortion. Brilliant attempt, as usual, to pretend to have fixed something that he hasn’t even begun to confront: That there are miserably high abortion rates in the state and he would make the state even friendlier to abortion, throughout pregnancy, when the state really needs some liberation from a regime of “choice” which may just mean women see no other option than abortion in their lives.
