The Moralizing Cuomo Brothers

Mario Cuomo was given to flowery denunciations on many subjects, but not abortion. There he would fall silent and simply say that he is “personally opposed” to it. His sons don’t even maintain that conceit. Andrew and Chris are both personally and publicly supportive of abortion.

Recall Andrew’s comment that pro-lifers don’t even belong in New York: “Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon and anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are, and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Both Cuomo brothers have inherited their father’s penchant for high and moralistic rhetoric. They have also inherited his incoherent moral philosophy.

Last year, he signed into law the most liberal abortion law in the country. “Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion,” Cuomo said. “With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body.”
