Five states passing legislation to allow abortion up to 40 weeks, and after birth

CNN: Unborn baby born at 21 weeks is "thriving"
CNN: Unborn baby born at 21 weeks is now “thriving” at 3 years old

Last week the Governor of New York signed a law that makes abortion legal right up to birth. But other Democrat governors are willing to do the same thing in their states. We’re really seeing Democrats reveal their real priorities now. It’s not job creation, it’s infanticide.

So Virginia is going infanticide, next. Here is video of a Democrat legislator being questioned about her infanticide bill:

So will the bill get signed into law? Here’s the latest report about the Democrat Governor of Virginia from The Federalist:

When asked about the controversial late term abortion bill presented in Virginia’s House of Delegates this week, Governor Ralph Northam said a fully developed child born in the third trimester would be kept alive, but the physician and mother would get to discuss and decide whether to take its life or not.

“If a mother is in labor…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 mother,” Northam said on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” segment this morning.

Here’s the Governor in his own words:

Just to be clear, if people are deciding whether the baby should live or die after it’s been born, that’s infanticide. Babies are viable at 22 weeks, so there will be abortions being performed on viable babies, from 22-36 weeks, and even after birth.

Next, there’s Rhode Island.

The author of the Rhode Island bill, Edith Ajello, says:

[…]The Rhode Island Reproductive Health Care Act, co-sponsored by state Sen. Gayle L. Goldin and Rep. Edith H. Ajello, would strip away even minor, common-sense abortion regulations – ones that a strong majority of Americans support. It would eliminate all protections for unborn babies and codify Roe v. Wade into state law in case the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the ruling.

Ajello described protections for unborn babies as “insidiously restrictive, harmful and patriarchal reproductive laws.” Her bill would even repeal the state partial-birth abortion ban and fetal homicide law, which provides justice to pregnant mothers whose unborn babies are killed by abusive partners, drunken drivers or others whose illegal actions cause the death of the unborn baby.

The ACLU, which supports Ajello’s bill, has claimed fetal homicide laws are problematic because they treat “a fetus as a person.”

[…]Earlier this month, [Rhode Island Gov. Gina] Raimondo promised to support the pro-abortion bill in her State of the State address, NBC 10 reports.

Life News reports that more states are introducing legislation to remove all restrictions on abortion:

New York, Vermont, New Mexico and now Rhode Island politicians are pushing radical pro-abortion legislation that could legalize the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth in their states.

Earlier this week, Rhode Island lawmakers introduced legislation to keep abortion legal and unrestricted if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, the AP reports.

So it’s New York, Virginia, Rhode Island, New Mexico and Vermont.

The only silver lining to this cloud that I can think of is that Democrat voters who don’t pay attention to the news will hear about this and reconsider whether they want to be on the side of people who don’t think that a baby is a baby, even when it’s just about to be born, or has just been born.

  1. I think Rush Limbaugh was right this morning in that with Kavanaugh having been appointed to the supreme court and Ginsberg on her last leg, which, if she goes, would give Trump ANOTHER s.c. appointment, the liberals are pushing through as much as they can get away with now so if Roe v. Wade gets overturned they can claim states rights and ignore it. That makes perfect sense and all of this goes right in line with the liberal playbook.

    1. Actually the status quo before roe was states decide. So that’s what it would be. Roe was the imposition of abortion on all the states. Canceling roe just restores “let each state decide”.

      1. I think all the laws we’re seeing is because the left believes that he’ll vote against it, but that’s not the case. For that, we’ll need to replace RBG with Amy Barrett, then the left should be scared.

        1. You have to pay attention to the legislation, as some things get passed, while others are defeated by Democrats:

          https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-joint-resolution/43

          That bill blocked Planned Parenthood from receiving Title IX funding, and was introduced by (then) Representative Diane Black of Tennessee.

          This one passed the Republican House, but failed in the Democrat Senate:

        2. I think men need to be careful of the unfortunate tendency in some women (usually ones who have not been raised by or around men) to want to escape from situations that make them feel bad. It is really important for men to vet women for their ability to finish what they start, especially if it was hard to do, before entering relationships with them.

  2. I just find it crazy that elected officials will push this stuff. Usually even in Canada many of the worst laws are by decree of an unelected court that fears no loss of job because of citizen backlash

    1. Yes… Canada has no legal limit on the age of abortion at all for any reason whatsoever… one of the few countries in the world like this…. thanks to the court.

  3. The Democrat Party has always been the party of slavery, whether actual, with whips and chains, or economic, with welfare, public housing, etc.
    Ever since abortion was legalized, long before Roe v. Wade, they have devolved to being the party of first-degree contract murder.
    Infanticide is merely the next logical step.
    (BTW, when was abortion made legal in the USA? Roe v. Wade merely expanded it to all 50 states).

    1. This is true. A lot of moderate pro-choice and pro-life with exceptions people that I am meeting on the street are outraged by this, and, by their own admission, becoming more pro-life.

      I hope this destroys the Democratic Party too – they have been on the wrong side of so many human rights atrocities, I have lost count.

  4. Looks like Northam might soon be the ex-governor of Virginia, although not because of his stance on infanticide, but over a 35-year old racist picture of him. Oh well, couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Maybe there’s something to this karma thing after all…
