Abortion Up to Birth: Virginia Bill Follows New York State’s Damnation of Child Extermination
The floodgates are open. After last week’s astonishing legislative abomination in New York State, legalizing abortions up to the moment of birth (and after) the Virginia assembly is considering similar law that would extend abortion rights up to the very moment a child is delivered.
In this disgusting video, the Virginia bill’s sponsor is shown dancing around the issue of what the bill actually allows in terms of abortion practice and intervention in prenatal viability, finally admitting that the intent of the bill is to legalize abortion up to the very moment of delivery.
Democratic Delegate Kathy Tran introduced HB2491, or the Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal the state’s current restrictions on late-term abortions. If passed, the measure will do away with the state’s requirement that second and third-trimester abortions be performed only to preserve the health or life of the woman. A woman seeking to abort would no longer need to obtain an ultrasound before having an abortion, under the proposed law.
Currently, three physicians must conclude that a third-trimester abortion is necessary to preserve the health or life of the woman. Those requirements are stripped under the proposed legislation, which also removes the state’s mandate that second and third-trimester abortions be performed in hospitals.
