Except for the quiet sobbing of a grieving mother, silence filled a dark hospital room in the middle of the night. Holding her daughter, whose spirit had slipped quietly into heaven before her body emerged into this world, the mother wept until her tear ducts ran dry.
There is no more desperate feeling than that of a parent holding a dead child. You would do anything. You would pay anything.
But at that moment there is nothing to do but pray. And cry.
Those memories flooded back to me last week as I watched Democrats in Virginia calmly describe their ghoulish plans to murder babies as they were being delivered, and after. Democratic State Delegate Kathy Tran testified in favor of her legislation allowing abortions up to the moment of birth:
“I mean, through the third trimester,” Tran said. “The third trimester goes up to 40 weeks.”
“OK, but to the end of the third trimester?” Republican Majority Leader Todd Gilbert asked her.
“Yup, I don’t think we have a limit in the bill,” Tran replied.
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified?” Gilbert asked. “She’s dilating,” he added.
“My bill would allow that. Yes,” Tran said, as calmly as any grocery store butcher goes about their business.
Tran’s testimony shocked me, but not as much as what happened next. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam took it a step further by advocating for abortion after delivery.
“If a 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 that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So I think this was really blown out of proportion,” Northam said during a radio interview. Don’t worry — if we miss on the first try we’ll certainly get them on the second, Dr. Mengele.
The governor of Virginia — a pediatrician, by the way — advocates murdering children after delivery and he thinks everyone else is blowing it out of proportion. During his campaign, Northam supported “high quality, affordable health care for all Americans.” I don’t usually think of killing a live human post-birth as “health care,” but I’m not angling to direct the next “Faces of Death” movie the way Northam apparently is.
