Man who allegedly murdered his pregnant girlfriend won’t be charged with death of baby after Cuomo’s bill

Thanks to a radical abortion bill signed into law last month by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a man who allegedly murdered his pregnant girlfriend will reportedly not be charged with the murder of her unborn baby.

Instead, it appears that suspected murderer Anthony Hobson, 48, will only be charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Jennifer Irigoyen, 35, as well as tampering with evidence and criminal possession of a weapon.

“The defendant is being held pending arraignment in Queens Criminal Court on a complaint charging him with second-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon,” Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced in a press release Friday.

According to the New York Post, Brown had originally sought to charge Hobson “with second-degree abortion as well as murder.”

“But a DA spokeswoman later told The Post that the abortion charge ‘was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today,’ the outlet reported Friday evening.

This suggests Brown had to adjust his plans after it dawned on him — perhaps because of prodding by the Post — that Cuomo’s new law has essentially made the murder of unborn babies legal.

Signed into law on Jan. 22, the so-called Reproductive Health Act empowered New York women with the alleged “fundamental right” to kill their unborn baby at any time during their pregnancy, including even moments before birth.

“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,” the governor proudly stated during the signing ceremony.

“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.”

This means Hobson was legally justified in stabbing Irigoyen so many times in the torso, neck and abdomen that he killed her baby.

“[S]hortly before 1 a.m. on Sunday, February 3, 2019, surveillance video captured the defendant as he allegedly dragged the victim, 35-year-old Jennifer Irigoyen, from the hallway of her third floor apartment into the stairwell of her Myrtle Avenue building,” Brown’s press release noted.

“Shortly thereafter, the defendant allegedly stabbed the expectant mother multiple times in the torso, neck and abdomen. Ms. Irigoyen, who is survived by a young child from a previous relationship, was transported to a local hospital where she and the unborn child died.”

While the fact that Irigoyen died is clearly unforgivable, as evidenced by the charges against the suspect, the fact that her baby also died is just apparently nothing but a random “fun” fact.

Locals seem to feel differently.

“I feel so sad. There is not only one person but there is two persons. That’s really sad,” one Queens resident said to local station WCBS.

Except in the radically far-left state of New York, babies are no longer considered people, as noted by social media:


The latter Twitter user is sadly mistaken if he seriously believes Cuomo has any interest in “rectifying” his radical abortion bill. The governor is a far-left radical who’s entirely divorced from the facts.

Case in point: Earlier this week he penned a op-ed for The New York Times blasting the “religious right” for criticizing his radical abortion agenda.

“[M]ost Americans, including most Catholics, are pro-choice,” the governor wrote.

While the statistics bear this out, a Marist/Knights of Columbus poll conducted last month found that even 60 percent of “pro-choice” Americans believe there should be at least some restrictions on abortions.

“The two labels – pro-life and pro-choice – mask a much greater consensus that lies beneath those labels,” Knights of Columbus vice president Andrew Walther announced in a statement at the time of the poll’s publication. “If you actually ask people, ‘What do you want the policy to be?’ as opposed to, ‘Pick an imperfect label for yourself,’ I think that in that case what you see here is a very positive trend.”

Correct. And if Cuomo sincerely believes that a majority of Americans see nothing wrong with letting suspects such as Hobson off the hook for murdering unborn babies, he himself is likely the one who’s very sadly mistaken.
