The Democrat Governor of Virginia was widely criticized for a barbaric bill that would essentially enable infanticide. Fox News reports:
Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam came under fire Wednesday after he waded into the fight over a controversial abortion bill that one sponsor said could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth — with critics saying Northam indicated a child could be killed after birth.
Northam, whose office is now pushing back on those claims, appeared on WTOP to discuss The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, one of the sponsors, sparked outrage from conservatives when she was asked at a hearing if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion. The bill was tabled in committee this week.
“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.
Northam, a former pediatric neurologist, was asked about those comments and said he couldn’t speak for Tran, but said that third-trimester abortions are done with “the consent of obviously the mother, with consent of the physician, multiple physicians by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.”
This might be the turning point for the pro-life movement: Democrats have overreached and shown the country just how savage they truly are.
If a pregnant woman is shot in a crime and the baby in the womb dies, it is murder. How can it not be infanticide once the child is actually born?
why should we limit it to “up to the moment of birth”? I think the mother should have a couple of days to figure out if she wants to keep the blob of protoplasm. If she decides “no” then some non-doctor throws the blob into a trash compactor. I mean-a woman has rights you know
The Democratic Party, Is now known as the Party of Death. They should do away with
the donkey use the Skull & cross bones.
Apparently New York doesn’t have the same backlash, they rose and cheered at infanticide. Imagine ANYONE thinking that killing children is OK. Well, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Planned Parenthood and the Democrat party all have something in common.
You reap what you sow, Virginia. If you had not hired this guy in the first place you would not need to “backlash” against him now.
