O'Reilly: Is The USA Becoming A Nation That Embraces Barbarism?
BILL O'REILLY: "A number of judges and politicians are doing things that harm defenseless children and babies in the womb. To me as an America, that is unacceptable. As you know, we have long advocated Jessica's Law, named after 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford, who was brutally raped and murdered in Florida by a convicted sex offender who never should have been out on the street. After that murder, some states quickly passed laws that sentenced child rapists to prison for decades, but some states were resistant, so we began to move. The Factor's campaign proved to be very effective, with just five states that still refuse to protect their children. They are Hawaii, Colorado, New York, Illinois, and Vermont. Perhaps the most egregious situation is in New York State, where Governor Andrew Cuomo will not get behind Jessica's Law. Cuomo does not seem to care about the safety of children; in fact, he's behind a proposed new law that would allow abortions in New York to be performed at any time for pretty much any reason. That means if a 12-year-old girl goes in for an abortion, New York will not investigate how the girl got pregnant. Obviously she has been the victim of statutory rape, but Cuomo does not care! On BillOReilly.com we have all the contact information for Governor Cuomo. You can tell him that his behavior is barbaric, because it is. Talking Points does not like to pinpoint Americans in this way, but I do not want my country to be a place of barbarism and I will fight against that!"
