Come to learn more about the so-called, “Equal Rights Amendment” (ERA) and how it can be used to overturn all restrictions on abortion (including abortion up until birth) & mandate taxpayer funding of these procedures.
On January 30, 2019 Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam said that a baby could be full term, fully delivered of it’s mother and THEN a decision will can be made as to the life of the baby (Interview with WTOP).
Here’s what he said, “If a mother is in labor…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 & mother”
This is open support for infanticide, and now the Governor is trying to backtrack on his comments. The people of VA will not be fooled.
This followed a discussion about a bill proposed this session by Delegate Kathy Tran (Springfield, VA) would allow for abortion up until the point of dilation during labor just before birth. Here’s a transcript of what occurred during the sub-committee hearing on the bill:
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is 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,” he continued, using the term for a woman’s cervix naturally opening to allow a baby to exit his mother during birth. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”
“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.
The bill would have repealed restrictions on third trimester abortions, allow abortionists to self-certify the necessity of the procedures, eliminate informed consent requirements, repeal health and safety standards for abortion clinics, allow late-term abortions to be performed in outpatient clinics, waive ultrasound requirements, and eliminate the 24 hour waiting period for abortions in Virginia, among other provisions.
The bill may have died in committee, but the agenda for abortion until delivery continues.
