Democratic Gov. of New York Andrew Cuomo signed legislation allowing late-term abortions Tuesday and Dr. Omar Hamada appeared on “Fox & Friends” Monday to speak out against it.
Hamada is a board certified OB/GYN and said it’s unconscionable to celebrate the death of infants.
“You know, that’s actually sick. I mean, that we’re celebrating the death of infants, of babies that could live outside of the womb right then,” he said.
“In fact, at the base of the World Trade Center I don’t know if you know this, but there is a memorial to 9/11 that — in which is listed the names of the victims and then also the fetuses. I think there were four or six fetuses that were killed. And they list those as victims. Now they’re celebrating that they’re able to take the lives of those [fetuses],” Hamada continued.
Cuomo held a ceremony to celebrate the signing of “The Reproductive Health Act” which expands women’s access to abortions up to the points of fetal viability. It also says a woman can abort her child after 24 weeks of development when “there is an absence of fetal viability, or at any time when necessary to protect a patient’s life or health.”
Hamada claimed there is almost no reason to terminate a pregnancy in it’s third trimester and said the child should be delivered instead of killed.
“There’s absolutely no reason to kill a baby before delivering in the third trimester — not a fetal or maternal indication is what we say in medicine,” he said. “If there’s a problem and there are problems in third trimester both with the babies and with moms that require delivery, just deliver the baby. We don’t have to kill it.”
