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.

Heard about that today...
Seems the left are jockeying for position on who is more immoral.
If you did that to laboratory testing animals you would go to jail...
And the governor was still calling it abortion... I had thought the term at that point would be infanticide?
So I guess if you're 15-16, have a kid and throw it in the dumpster then it's OK now?
Sad part is that not a SINGLE Democrat that I have seen has stood up and said "Wait, What?"
They're just all supporting it.
I was a preemie by 2 months.
This is just crazy.
"When we talk about third trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician by the way. And it is done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that is non-viable."
And by the same thinking, how long after birth would this be legal? Leftists beware, are you in that time frame...? Just saying...

On the bright side this ends the whole argument about when leftists think life begins... it doesn’t and never has mattered to them... because now even after the baby is born they’re cool with killing it... so everything leading up to this was them just greasing the slope...
