Gov. Northam: Bill Allows for Post-Birth Abortion


Just when you thought that voting Democratic couldn’t get any deadlier, Dems in Virginia want to give mothers the right to kill their children even after birth.

In light of the new pro-abortion bill passed in New York, Democrats in the state of Virginia are taking things even further by proposing a shocking piece of legislation that would allow the killing of a baby right up to the moment of birth.

In an almost unbelievable exchange between Virginia House Democrat Kathy Tran and Republican Todd Gilbert during a House subcommittee hearing, it was made clear that, under HB 2491, the mother would be permitted to request an abortion even as she is showing signs of going into labor.

“Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth…would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion?” Gilbert asked. “She’s dilating..”

“My bill would allow that, yes,” Tran responded.

Gov. Ralph Northam threw gas on the fire Wednesday when he said during a radio interview that an infant could be left to die even after birth.

On Wednesday morning, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam appeared on WTOP Radio to answer questions about the new bill, which he fully endorses.

During WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” segment, Northam defended HB 2491, also known as the Repeal Act, noting he believes Tran’s comments were “really blown out of proportion.”

When asked to explain what Tran meant when she said the bill would allow women to abort their children even as their body is dilating and preparing to deliver, Northam offered an unsettling response.

“This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians and the mothers and fathers that are involved,” he said. “When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician — more than one physician, by the way — and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s non-viable.”

Northam went on to offer a troubling scenario that appeared to support not only Tran’s bill, but out-of-the-womb infanticide:

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he said. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
