Last week, people were shocked when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and other Democrats cheered when he signed a bill allowing for abortions to take place up until the moment of birth.
But it isn’t just New York where Democrats are pushing such vile laws.
Virginia is also pushing a similar law eliminating all restrictions on abortion.
From Daily Wire:
Along with allowing abortion up to the moment of birth, the so-called Reproductive Health Act also loosens restrictions on who performs them, and removes the fatal procedure from the state’s criminal code. “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” reads the legislation signed by Cuomo.
So long as a licensed practitioner acts in “good faith,” says the law, an abortion can be performed “to protect the patient’s life or health.” Notably, “health” was defined by the Supreme Court (Doe v. Bolton) to broadly include “emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age.”
Virginia House Democrats propose legislation to allow abortions up until the moment of birth
Todd Gilbert (R): Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth…would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion?
Kathy Tran (D): My bill would allow that, yes pic.twitter.com/UHgzU3EGDA

Gilbert: Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.
Tran: Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the woman would make at that point.
Gilbert: I understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.
Tran: My bill would allow that, yes.
Kathy Tran’s Twitter profile ironically notes this:
“Fighting for a welcoming and inclusive Commonwealth where all thrive.”
When she’s basically justifying what is little more than infanticide.
