The furor over Gov. Andrew Cuomo's inhumane pro-abortion bill in New York, which allows abortion up to 24 weeks, has yet to subside. But on the heels of his signature, a lawmaker in the state of Virginia has introduced an even more radical piece of legislation. Virginia House of Delegates member Kathy Tran (D-Fairfax) has offered up a bill would allow a mother to get an abortion at the very end of her third trimester. Subcommittee Chair Del. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) had to hear it to believe it.
Heartbreaking... This isn't in New York, this isn't in California, this happened just this week right here in Virginia. @VAHouseDems proposed legislation to provide abortions up to just seconds before that precious child takes their first breath.

In the video, Gilbert asks Tran up until what point physicians be allowed to perform an abortion. She was very candid.
"Through the third trimester," she said. "The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks."
"I don't think we have a limit in the bill," she said, rather casually.
Gilbert, as you can tell by his long pauses and tone of voice, is stunned by her answers. So he dares to ask more questions. Does Tran's bill allow a woman who is dilating and about to give birth permission to ask her doctor to abort her child?
"My bill would allow that, yes," she replied.
Tran is hardly the only Virginia Democrat to support the bill.
Pro-lifers are shocked that the extreme is suddenly becoming the new normal.
New York just passed a bill essentially legalizing abortion up to birth. Virginia is now considering a bill that would explicitly allow abortion up to birth. This is not about viability or “safe, legal, and rare.” This is unlimited abortion on demand of fully formed babies.— Alexandra DeSanctis (@xan_desanctis) January 30, 2019
This is horrifying. The calm, casual discussion of destroying a 9 month old human life. Lord have mercy on us. https://t.co/3xTotLEjw9— David Marcus (@BlueBoxDave) January 30, 2019
