The abortion debate erupted anew this week after a video surfaced showing the Democratic sponsor of a Virginia abortion proposal acknowledging it could allow women to terminate a pregnancy up until the moment before birth, for reasons including mental health.
This is what is wrong with Democrats. They have no values. They do not respect the concept of life unless they are the ones playing god. Behind the approval of a similar abortion up to birth in New York, now Democrat Del. Kathy Tran has sponsored a similar bill in Virginia. The bill allows women to terminate their pregnancy up to the moment of birth for reasons including mental health. The bill only requires one doctor to make the call. When the previous bill required two additional physicians to make the call to terminate the pregnancy.
Yet in Iowa, a judge struck down an abortion law that bans, “a woman from obtaining an abortion once a fetus’ heartbeat is detected, saying it violated the state’s constitution.” Republican Rep. Reynolds sponsored the bill saying if life is said to end when a heartbeat stops, then life should be defined to begin when a heartbeat starts.
In a video posted in the link below, you see Democrat Rep. Kathy Tran give a sad commentary.
“Todd Gilbert, the Republican House majority leader, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician said it could impair her “mental health.”
“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so-certified — she’s dilating,” he asked.
“Mr. Chairman, that would be … a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.
“I understand that,” Gilbert replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”
Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”
