Coronavirus: Broadway Shows Cancelled Until June 7

Published

“Seen the lights go out Broadway,” are the words Bill Joel sings at the beginning of his 1976 song Miami 2017, but those lights won’t be turning back on until June 7, said The Broadway League Wednesday, as it does it’s part to help combat the spread of coronavirus.

The theaters will remain closed and the league will reassess what needs to be done to get the theaters reopened for patrons.

The Broadway League said the decision was made in accordance with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s (D) order and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines on social distancing.

“Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatergoers and the thousands of people who work in the theatre industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
