Dr. Stephen Krason, professor of political science and legal studies, discusses the new laws on abortion in New York.
Many commentators have perceived that the New York State law that legalizes infanticide when a child has survived a late-term abortion is a watershed. This was certainly buttressed by both the State’s celebratory lighting up of the Freedom Tower building after its passage and the subsequent public justification of infanticide by Virginia’s governor (a pediatrician, no less) as well as the quick moves in certain other states to following the Empire State’s lead.
Dr. Stephen M. Krason is Professor of Political Science and Legal Studies, Director of the Political Science Program, and Chairman of the Department of Political Science (which includes the Human Life Studies, Humanities and Catholic Culture, Legal Studies, and Political Science Programs). He is also Associate Director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life at the University. He earned his J.D. and Political Science M.A. and Ph.D. at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
