Virginian Democratic Governor Ralph Northam has stunned many people by saying some babies should be allowed to die right after they’re born. The news came soon after a Democrat bill was blocked in the Virginia House of Delegates that would have allowed babies to be aborted up until the last second, even while the mother is in delivery. Northam, who was a paediatric neurologist before being elected Virginia’s governor in 2018, made the comment during a radio interview. The program’s host asked Northam if he supported the bill that would allow a woman to receive an abortion even while she was going into labor.
“Third-trimester abortions are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of more than one physician, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a foetus that’s non-viable.” “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “The infant would be delivered, kept comfortable and resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” The governor added that he thinks the furore over the bill and Virginia Democratic Delegate Kathy Tran’s comments “was really blown out of proportion.”
Many people responded to the governor’s remarks on Twitter. Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted: “I never thought I would see the day America had government officials who openly support legal infanticide.” US Rep. Mark Meadows wrote: “If you’re an even moderately pro-life activist in Virginia, or anywhere in the country, this should get you off your couch. Stomach turning.” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) also released a statement in response to Northam’s comments. “This is morally repugnant,” Sasse said in the statement. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’
