Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam suggested that infants can be killed after birth in an appearance on a popular local radio show in Virginia Wednesday morning.
According to MRCTV, Speaking on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” Wednesday, Northam defended his position supporting a bill proposed in the Virginia Assembly that would legalize elective abortions on demand through the ninth month of pregnancy all the way up until the moment of birth.
When asked to respond to public outrage over the proposal, Northam seemed to suggest that not only can babies be terminated up until the moment they’re born, but that full-term, born-alive infants can be left to die without medical care if the mother wishes.
“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered,” Northam began, speaking of babies born with anomalies that, according to liberals, would’ve warranted abortion. “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 did not clarify what a “discussion” would involve, or what “anomalies” justify for infanticide.
Absolutely disgusting. Virginia Governor @RalphNortham defends leaving born-alive infants alone to die.
THIS is the revolting consequence of legalized, culturally-accepted abortion. If a “fetus” can be slaughtered, why can’t a newborn be discarded too, like so much trash? pic.twitter.com/gabfsh64p0

This is horrific.
Dem Gov. Ralph Northam, a pediatrician himself, is defending born-alive abortions:

A significant amount of others weighed in displaying their disgust.
Josh Jordan noted, “Gallup did not poll about letting a newborn die on the table after being delivered as discussed by Gov Northam in Virginia today, because that’s beyond abhorrent.”
Partial birth abortion has historically been opposed by 80%+ of the country.

The bill, which has been tabled as of this writing,“…eliminates all the procedures and processes, including the performance of an ultrasound, required to effect a woman’s informed written consent to the performance of an abortion; however, the bill does not change the requirement that a woman’s informed written consent be first obtained. The bill eliminates the requirement that two other physicians certify that a third trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health, as well as the need to find that any such impairment to the woman’s health would be substantial and irremediable.” – Read More
