Infanticide is a hot topic of conversation as of a late, due in part to the recent law passed in New York state that legalizes third-trimester abortions performed by non-doctors. Governor Cuomo couldn't wait to sign the law while simultaneously criticizing the death penalty. Apparently unborn baby's lives don't matter but he doesn't feel the same way about convicted murders.
But how do other state's leaders feel about the topic?
Meet Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam. During a recent radio interview he revealed some rather surprising opinions about the topic of infanticide - killing a child within one year of it's birth.
The whole conversation started about Democratic Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran introduced HB 2491 (the Repeal Act) earlier this month. The bill was created to repeal the state’s current restrictions on late-term abortions. The bill would basically make it legal for a doctor to perform an abortion when a woman is dilating, meaning she is about to give birth.
Aborting a baby after it's been born is murder, right? But what about while it's being born?
Northam told WTOP listeners, "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."
His vague answer leads many to believe he's okay with killing a baby. Strange that he didn't have a more clear position on this topic, no?
