The latest abortion law in New York is just that – an abortion of justice. A report has surfaced of a man murdering his girlfriend in Queens, as well as their unborn baby, which she reportedly wanted. The man is being charged with murder, plus several other charges, but he will now NOT be charged with abortion.
This from DW:
New York’s new law allowing late-term abortion has resulted in the dropping of abortion charges against a man arrested for murdering his pregnant girlfriend.
Jennifer Irigoyen was a 35-year-old real estate broker, a classical pianist, a professional Latin ballroom dancer, a certified Spinning instructor, and a licensed Zumba instructor. She was the mother of a 12-year-old boy from a previous relationship and five months pregnant at the time of her death.
This amazing woman’s life — and the life of her unborn child — was cut short after they were both stabbed to death in her Queens apartment building, according to Gothamist. Surveillance video from the apartment building showed Irigoyen being murdered, according to the superintendent, who told the New York Post that the woman screamed, “He’s got a knife! He’s going to kill the baby!”
Irigoyen’s boyfriend, 48-year-old Anthony Hobson, turned himself in to the 104thPrecinct in Ridgewood, New York, and was arrested for the murder. He was initially charged “with murder, tampering with physical evidence, abortion, and criminal possession of a weapon,” according to Gothamist, but the “abortion” charge was later dropped.
The Post reports that the abortion charge was dropped because of a new state law that allows abortion up to the minute of birth. Even though Irigoyen wanted her baby, it was not considered a life under the new law. A spokesperson for the District Attorney told the Post the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.”
As The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo previously reported, the law, called the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), repealed abortion from the state’s criminal code and removed the law limiting abortions beyond 24 weeks. The abortion can be performed by a licensed practitioner in “good faith” up to the minute a baby is born “to protect the patient’s life or health,” yet “health” is not defined in the legislation.
Ostensibly billed as a “women’s healthcare” law, the RHA states that “”every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.” Irigoyen didn’t get to make those choices, yet the man who did won’t be charged for ending a pregnancy she wanted.
As The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti previously reported, this bill removed protections for “wanted” children by removing abortion from the criminal code. Until January 23, someone murdering a pregnant woman and her unborn child would be charged with abortion under the state’s existing murder laws. That charge was removed on January 23.
Irigoyen and her unborn child were murdered on February 3, less than two weeks after the law went into effect.
The New York State Catholic Conference opposed the law, saying that it “removes accountability for those who would harm unborn children outside the context of medical termination of pregnancy.”
As Irigoyen’s case shows, the NYSCC was right. There will be justice for Irigoyen’s murder, but not for that of her unborn child, whom she wanted. Could Hudson have gotten away with just the lesser charges had he only stabbed and killed Irigoyen’s unborn child?
New York abortion activists cheered wildly when the new law passed.

I suppose I should feel at least some sense of relief to know that the man will be charged with the murder of his girlfriend, but I still have a hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach when I realize the baby’s right to defense was stripped away by the law.
My opinion is that I don’t think the lawmakers could sink any lower than they have with this new law. I think it was a new low when they approved removal of protection for even wanted babies, which you no doubt saw here in the above article, and on which we reported in NEW YORK’S NEW LAW REMOVES PROTECTIONS EVEN FOR WANTED BABIES We reported more details their depraved thinking in the article CELEBRATING NY ABORTION LAW – ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER LIT WITH PINK. It’s totally heartbreaking.
I don’t know about you, but for me, the thought of murdering a baby makes my stomach churn. It goes against everything naturally built into a decent human being. Animals will give their lives for the sake of the babies, but yet some people think it’s a good thing to be able to murder a baby before it’s even born!
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
