Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) revealed that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam supported a bill that allows a mother to decide to “abort” a baby during labor.
“Governor Northam supported a bill that would allow abortions when a mother was already in labor,” said Cruz during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “For all of us who are parents, imagine that.”

Cruz stated that Governor Northam also supports allowing parents to decide whether or not a baby should live or die after a baby has been born.
“[Governor Northam] said, and I quote, ‘The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.’ This is a sitting governor, the Commonwealth of Virginia, calmly discussing allowing this baby to die.”
