Abortion should be legal up to the moment of birth, according to Kathy Tran, a Democrat who serves in the Virginia House of Delegates. On Monday, Tran answered questions about her radical pro-abortion bill, which in addition to allowing for abortions in the third trimester would repeal many of Virginia’s commonsense safety and informed consent requirements.
On Wednesday, Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam went a step further by stating that an unwanted child that has already been delivered should be cared for only “if that’s what the mother and family desired.” This came on the heels of New York’s Governor, two-term Democrat Andrew Cuomo, signing a bill last week that legalized abortion up to birth. Taking to social media, Heritage President Kay Coles James denounced the actions, saying, “Policymakers shouldn’t cave to the well-funded radical pro-abortion activist groups peddling these extreme laws in states across the country. We can do better!”
