Today, the governor of Virginia essentially endorsed infanticide. He began his comments by discussing a bill in the Virginia House introduced by a Democrat that would allow abortion right up until birth.
But the governor, Democrat Ralph Northam, took it a step further when he said that after child is born the mother and family should “have a discussion.” To say the comments are shocking, sickening and vile is to put it lightly.
Northam has been getting major backlash from conservatives and people who generally don’t support infanticide.
One of those not real thrilled with Norhtam’s comments was Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse. He didn’t hold back:
“This is morally repugnant. 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.”
Other notable conservatives responded to Northam’s pro-abortion comments:
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. https://t.co/Npxa4c5JdI

I never thought I would see the day America had government officials who openly support legal infanticide. https://t.co/VzM4FPO7QT

If you want to know how media bias works. The governor of Virginia openly advocates infanticide and is not challenged by the interviewer at all. https://t.co/BvUsZPB6Qz

It will be interesting to see if Northam tries to walk back his comments & how long it takes him to do so. https://t.co/cJ2FedjSOw

This only difference between a baby Virginia Democrats are fine with killing and a baby Virginia Democrats believe receives at least some protection is passage through the birth canal. That's insane.

Post-birth “choice.” This is chilling. https://t.co/10MHQpLjAd
