Ben Sasse Reels After Hearing Gov. Northam's Infanticide Comments

And we thought Andrew Cuomo had issues. Just a few days after the New York governor introduced a radical pro-abortion bill that would allow abortions up until 24 weeks of pregnancy, Virginia lawmakers have tried to one up him. On Tuesday, Virginia House of Delegates member Kathy Tran (D-Fairfax) introduced a bill that would permit abortions through all 40 weeks of pregnancy, right before the moment of birth.

When her stunned colleague asked her a few more questions about the bill just to make sure he was hearing her right, she admitted it.

“Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth," Del. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) noted. "Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.”

"My bill would allow that, yes," Tran said.

On Wednesday morning,  Gov. Ralph Northam weighed in on the controversy that arose after Tran introduced the bill. In the radio interview, the liberal governor defended the legislation and made another controversial statement about what's to be done with infants who survive abortions.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen," Northam said. "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 the mother.”

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is one of the many pro-lifers to express their outrage over the liberal governor's remarks.

“This is morally repugnant,” Sasse said in a statement. “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.”

Of note, Sasse introduced a bill a couple of weeks ago that would penalize physicians that refuse medical care to infants born alive after botched abortions. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require that any child born alive be transported to a hospital instead of remaining with the abortionist. The bill passed the House last year, but needs 60 votes to make it through the Senate.
