This time in Virginia. A bill has been proposed there to abort up to…and after…birth. Via freebeacon.com:
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D.) commented Wednesday about a controversial 40-week abortion bill and in so doing said the law allows an abortion to take place after the infant’s birth.
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. 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,” Northam said, alluding to the physician and mother discussing whether the born infant should live or die.
A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy. The video of Delegate Kathy Tran presenting her bill led to an exchange where she admitted that her bill would allow for a mother to abort her child minutes before giving birth.
“How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated that it would impair the mental health of the woman?” Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R.) asked.
“Or physical health,” Tran said.
“Okay,” Gilbert replied. “I’m talking about the mental health.”
“I mean, through the third trimester,” Tran said. “The third trimester goes up to 40 weeks.”
“Okay, but to the end of the third trimester?” Gilbert asked.
“Yup, I don’t think we have a limit in the bill,” Tran said.
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified?” Gilbert asked. “She’s dilating.”
Tran responded that is a decision between the woman and her doctor would have to make. Gilbert asked if her bill would allow an abortion right before the infant was born.
“My bill would allow that, yes,” Tran said.
And a little further down:
Northam continued by saying government shouldn’t be involved in these types of decisions and that legislators, especially male legislators, shouldn’t be telling women what to do.
“I think this was really blown out of proportion. But again we want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions. We want the decision to be made by the mothers and their providers. And this is why Julie, that legislators, most of whom are men by the way, shouldn’t be telling a woman what she should or shouldn’t be doing with her body,” Northam said.
I don’t need to be a woman to know that it’s fucking MURDER to abort a baby 10 seconds before a woman gives birth. Lady, that is not your right. Do these people have any compassion at all? How utterly self-centered and morally deprived does one have to be to take the position that this is okay? This is pure evil.
Again, as with the NY abortion law, this country may not be worth saving if this is the direction we are going to go. I do not want to live in a country where this becomes acceptable. We have to fight back against this. Literally murdering children.
Are people enjoying the civilization we have now since we removed Christ from the equation? Is this really better? Do people really feel like we’ve hit some kind of moral nirvana, some higher level of moral consciousness, since we became a post-Christian nation? I for one do not think allowing babies to be murdered seconds before they are born, or after they are born, is a step in the right direction. I will post this video once again as long as the link stays up to remind people what a third trimester abortion entails.
