Last week, the New York legislature passed and Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill that permits abortion at any moment in the third trimester. Cuomo and his fellow infanticides hailed this as a great moment for women’s right, even to the point of having the World Trade Center illuminated with pink lights, because, as we know, no woman is truly free unless she can kill her offspring.
Think about it. Throughout the last trimester, most babies are viable outside the womb.
Many of us thought, naively, that this was simply a function of New York Democrats being the soulless pagans that they are. But now we’re seeing it is not a uniquely New York happening.
First New York, and now a proposed Virginia bill that would legalize abortion up to the moment of birth…
This is a sad commentary on the culture of death that continues to creep insidiously into the laws of our county…

To understand how barbaric this new bill being proposed in Virginia is, you have to listen to this exchange.
Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran is the sponsor of The Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions. The bill — which was tabled in committee this week — has the support of top Democrats in the state, including Gov. Ralph Northam.
The bill would remove a number of restrictions currently in place regarding late-term abortions, including doing away with the requirement that two other physicians certify a third-trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health. The third trimester lasts until 40 weeks.
Todd Gilbert, the Republican House majority leader, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician said it could impair her “mental health.”
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so-certified — she’s dilating,” he asked.
“Mr. Chairman, that would be … a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.
“I understand that,” Gilbert replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”
Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”
I want to clear something up so that there is absolutely no doubt.
I’m a Board Certified OB/GYN who has delivered over 2,500 babies.
There’s not a single fetal or maternal condition that requires third trimester abortion. Not one. Delivery, yes. Abortion, no.

This creature literally is proposing that a woman could be in the delivery room, dilated, the baby crowning and she could tell the Ob-Gyn to suction the kid’s brains out and that would be not only legal but worthy of praise.
There are two parallels streams running through a bill that even Josef Mengele would not have endorsed.
Infanticide is merely a natural extrapolation from Abortion. If it can't be seriously wrong to kill a tiny bit of protoplasm, then it can't be so very wrong to kill a somewhat bigger bit, and what real difference does it make whether it's inside the womb or out?

But more to the point, it shows these infanticides realize that the baby is alive and that it is human. And if they acknowledge restrictions at any point in pregnancy, then their whole argument goes away. If you agree that it is improper to abort a baby at 25 weeks, what makes doing it at 23 weeks okay? What has changed in the nature of the baby that makes it now worth protecting. These same people are much the same group that is pushing euthanasia for the elderly and infirm. There is a connecting feature here. In the society they envision, if you are a perceived burden at any point, they will kill you.
I’ve written before on my view that the fight against abortion is at least as important as the fight against slavery. People who actively seek to promote abortion are deserving of no more respect than your typical Louisiana slavemonger. What is worse is the weasels who say “I’m personally opposed to abortion but I think a woman should have the right to choose.” I’m confident that one day, perhaps not in my life, vile and pathetic creatures like Delegate Kathy Tran will be scorned and ostracized and the pro-abort movement will be seen as just another manifestation of man’s cruelty and inhumanity to the helpless, like the KKK, like the Nazi T4 program. If I’m lucky, Tran and others like her will stand trial for their monstrous behavior and receive secular as well as Divine retribution.
