Somewhere around Twitter, I saw somebody complain that people are spreading “lies” about Virginia Democrats. The on-point response from somebody else (paraphrasing): “People are spreading direct quotes.”
Sometimes these things are better seen. Watch Virginia Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran explain her pro-abortion legislation. As the Republican chairman of the committee to which she’s presenting digs into what the bill would allow, Tran’s face actually winces, because she knows what she’s about to say:
Gilman: Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth — 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 [certified as having a mental health reason]?
Gilman: She’s dilating.
Tran: [Winces.] Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the woman would make at that point.
Gilman: I understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.
Tran: My bill would allow that, yeah.
All pretense is now off the table. This is infanticide, as Democrat Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam subsequently went on the radio to confirm. The interviewer asked about the exchange quoted above, and Northam answered thus:
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.
Notice that we’re no longer talking about a fetus, here. This is an infant. Apparently, many Democrats have become so intrinsically radical that they are now willing to admit that. It’s their religion, and human sacrifice is allowed.
By the way, infanticide is evil… just in case that isn’t clear anymore.
