Virginia Democrats are pushing to loosen restrictions on late-term abortion. A new bill proposed in the Virginia legislature by Democrat Kathy Tran, would make it easier for women to kill their babies during the third trimester of pregnancy.

Presently, Virginia law only allows for abortions during the third trimester if three doctors agree that continuing the pregnancy would result in the mother’s death or “substantially and irremediably” impair her mental or physical health.

The new legislation would reduce the three-doctor-approval requirement to only one doctor. The bill further seeks to remove the words “substantially and irremediably” when referring to the dangers of continuing the pregnancy.

In a video that’s been widely shared on social media, Tran admits her bill would allow for abortions up until moments before birth.

Republican Todd Gilbert asked Tran: “How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?”

“Through the third trimester,” Tran responded. “The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.”

Gilbert questioned further: “Okay. But to the end of the third trimester?”

“Yep,” Tran replied. “I don’t think we have a limit in the bill.”

The following day, Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam, said on air that he was a supporter of infanticide and did not want to government involved in the decision to kill a baby.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Governor 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 mother.”
