Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) advocated for the murder of newborn babies in a radio interview with DC-based WTOP on Wednesday.
After years of convincing young women that their unborn babies are ‘just a clump of cells’ and they have a ‘choice’ to dispose of the ‘cells,’ the Democrats are now openly advocating for the murder of born-alive babies, also known as infanticide.
We knew this was coming.
Governor Northam was asked about a new bill that would lift restrictions on late term abortions (3rd trimester) in Virginia.
The radio host pointed out the new bill proposed by Kathy Tran, a Democrat lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates, would allow for a mother to abort (kill) the baby minutes before giving birth.
“She [Kathy Tran] was pressed by a Republican delegate about whether her bill would permit an abortion even as a woman is essentially dilating, ready to give birth and she answered that ‘it would’ permit an abortion at that stage of labor,” the radio host Julie said. “Do you support her measure and explain her answer,” Julie added.
“I wasn’t there, Julie. And I certainly can’t speak for delegate Tran. But I would tell you one, the first think I would say, this is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved,” Northam said. “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.”
Northam continued, “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.”
Yes, he said that.

Update: A spokesman for the far left Governor released a statement to ‘clarify’ Northam’s endorsement of infanticide.
“The governor’s comments were limited to the actions physicians would take in the event that a woman [facing nonviable pregnancy or severe fetal abnormalities] went into labor.”
