Vocal Point-Jon Speed

Recently, the state of New York passed one of the most liberal abortion laws in the country. Lifenews.com writes, “The law appears to restrict late-term abortions, but it adds a broad ‘health’ exception for abortions after 24 weeks. The exception would allow women to abort unborn babies up to nine months of pregnancy for basically any reason, including ‘age, economic, social and emotional factors,’ according to New York Right to Life.” So, in effect, the law leads to abortion on demand until the moment of birth. To do his own part to protest against this unjust law, Jon Speed, a Christian owner of a bookstore in Syracuse, New York, decided to close down his shop one day just to prevent having to pay for taxes that day. Going forward, all taxes to New York from his shop will be “sales taxes collected under duress.” Jon Speed joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the new law and his protesting act.
