Country music legend Charlie Daniels blasted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) over the weekend after the Empire State controversially legalized late-term abortion last week.

What did Daniels say?

According to Daniels, Cuomo and New York Democrats "created a new Auschiwitz dedicated to the execution of a whole segment of defenseless citizens."

The sweeping new pro-abortion law is one of the most extreme in the nation, critics say. But progressives considered its passage a victory. Cuomo even ordered the One World Trade Center to be lit pink in celebration.

On Sunday, Daniels followed up his tweet with another, warning that progressives will next be "coming after the seniors next with Euthanasia."

What does the New York's new law allow?

As TheBlaze previously reported:

The Reproductive Health Act would permit abortions after 24 weeks if the health or life of the mother is at stake. It also allows abortions at any point in a pregnancy if the baby is determined to not be viable outside the womb. It also moved the regulation of abortion from criminal law to public health law.

Finally, it changes the law to allow licensed, certified, or authorized health care practitioners to perform abortions, instead of limiting that to only physicians. According to reporting by WNYT-TV, this would include nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
