Senator Marc Panepinto (NY 60th Senate District) makes no bones about the fact that he has a serious departure with the Catholic Church and does not shy away from the fact.
Panepinto believes that the Catholic Church is denying the rights of woman by opposing the live cervical dislocation (essentially decapitation) of infants during the birthing process in or at the end of their ninth month of pregnancy – a practice referred to as partial birth abortion.
Panepinto proudly defends this “right to choose” and is committed to leading the charge to pass Governor Cuomo’s “Tenth Point” of his proposed Women’s Equality Act, which would legalize such extreme and inhumane procedures in NY State.
In the coming months Panepinto is expected to promote his support of abortion rights, say political operatives. They expect that the Cuomo Administration will rekindle the issue as he seeks passage of his “women’s equality” themed legislation.
