As media continue to obsess over the “Send her back!” chant, I though it might be a good idea to remind readers of what our same media decided was a “couple of days and out” story: Virginia Governor ralph northam’s support of infanticide.
These are northam’s words. Not paraphrased, not doctored.
“When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of physicians, more than one physician by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus which is non-viable. So in this particular example, if the mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if this is what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.”
In other words, it is not enough to allow abortion until the moment of birth. northam is saying, in so many words, that if the abortion fails and there is a live child on the table, the child “would be kept comfortable” while they decide whether or not to allow it to live.
That is infanticide. There is no way to rationalize or sugar-coat it as anything else.
It meshes nicely with the fact that, in February, Democrats aggressively prevented a vote on the “Born Alive Survivors Protection Act – which says that if a child survives an abortion doctors must treat it as a human being and make every effort to keep it alive.
Tell me: what do YOU call a child that is born alive? A fetal lump? A hood ornament?
And it also meshes nicely with the legislation passed by Democrats in several states that allows abortion right up to the moment of birth, which, unless you contort reality into something unrecognizable, is every bit as much infanticide as what northam described.
Amazing, isn’t it? “Send her back” is a political maelstrom. But killing live babies is no problem at all – as long as it’s two of media’s demigods – Democrats and Planned Parenthood – promoting the killing.
That is the state of our media today.
And they wonder why fewer and fewer people trust them?
I sure don’t.
