According to Canon Law, he's automatically excommunicated.
Waiting for the Church's public pronouncement that Cuomo has been automatically excommunicated.
Waiting ... still waiting ... I hear crickets ...

oh8eleven,

I thought I'd give this a try and I left the following message for Cardinal Dolan.

Cardinal Dolan,

According to Canon Law:

http://www.catechism.cc/articles/abortion-excommunication.htm

“Those Catholics who publicly announce their denial that abortion is always gravely immoral, or who publicly promote abortion, or who publicly argue in favor of legalized abortion, also commit a mortal sin and also incur a sentence of automatic excommunication.

This sentence of excommunication applies to Catholics who are politicians, as well as to those Catholics who are political commentators, or public speakers, or who write or otherwise publicly communicate their erroneous view that abortion can be morally-acceptable or that abortion should be legal. This sentence of excommunication also certainly applies to those Catholics who claim to be theologians or Biblical scholars, but who believe or teach that abortion is not always gravely immoral.

Those Catholics who promote abortion are automatically excommunicated for two reasons. First, they have fallen into the sin of heresy by believing that abortion is not always gravely immoral (canons 751 and 1364). Second, these Catholics are providing substantial assistance for women to obtain abortions by influencing public policy to make abortions legal, and to keep abortions legal, and to broaden access to abortion. Those who provide such substantial assistance commit a mortal sin and incur a sentence of automatic excommunication (canon 1398). ”

As a supposed Catholic, Governor Cuomo is committing mortal sin by enabling and advancing abortion in New York State. I urge you to inform Governor Cuomo of his grave sin and that he should not be receiving the Eucharist until he sincerely repents for his mortal sin and vows to sin no more. In addition, you and your fellow priests should be denying him the Eucharist!

Cuomo is obviously guilty of all that I've highlighted. Now that I've pointed out the obvious to him, we'll see if Cardinal Dolan does anything about it.
