Democrats in two states proudly introduce horrifying bills that would allow abortions up to birth

New York triggered an avalanche of outrage last week when it passed, and then celebrated, a new law allowing late-term abortions under certain circumstances. Unfortunately, the Empire State is not the only state to recently consider radical new abortion laws.
Allowing late-term abortions has also been on the legislative docket in Virginia and Rhode Island.

What happened in Virginia?

Kathy Tran, a Democrat who serves in Virginia's House of Delegates, introduced legislation last week that would effectively eliminate most existing regulations on abortion in the Old Dominion State and even allow abortions up to the moment of birth.
The bill, known as the Repeal Act, would eliminate the requirement that second trimester abortions be performed in a hospital and eliminate "all the procedures and processes ... required to effect a woman's informed written consent to the performance of an abortion."
Most egregiously, the bill would allow third trimester abortions if a physician believes the child would even impair a woman's mental health. The bill states:
The bill eliminates the requirement that two other physicians certify that a third trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman's death or impairment of her mental or physical health, as well as the need to find that any such impairment to the woman's health would be substantial and irremediable.
On Monday, Tran, in an exchange with Virginia House of Delegates Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R), openly admitted the bill would permit abortions up to 40 weeks, the length of an average pregnancy.
Gilbert asked: "How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?"
Tran responded: "I mean, through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks."
To clarify, Gilbert asked if that means the "end of the third trimester," to which Tran said: "Yes. I don't think we have a limit in the bill."
Tran later admitted the bill would permit an "abortion" even as a woman is in labor about to deliver her child.

  1. We should children to killed up to age 30. Which should also be the legal age of adulthood. And of course if you manage to survive that, we should start exterminating everyone on their 60th birthday.
