Looks like babies are going to be in danger in Virginia if the governor gets his way. Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) has decided to back the Repeal act.
A bill that would allow mothers to abort babies while giving birth to them. The bill repeals the current restriction that stops people from killing babies in the third trimester.
“When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician—more than one physician, by the way—and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s non-viable,” Northam said.
“So in this particular example 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.”

Senators have already stepped up and criticized the pro-infanticide governor.
“This is morally repugnant,” Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., said in a statement to National Review. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”
Senator Jim Demint hopped on Twitter to chastise the governor.
“VA Gov Northam is no moderate, this is one of the most vile, radical pro-abortion positions ever put forward. This is evil. He should recant or resign.”
Wow, how do you support a bill like this? This bill is beyond nasty, allowing the murder of fully developed children. I agree with Demint, Northam needs to resign after supporting such a heinous bill.
