With the recently passed law in New York allowing for late-term abortion, and new legislation being considered by other states, the U.S. is now on par with countries like China and North Korea in our abortion policies. That should disturb you.
On today’s show, we talked about another late-term abortion bill that has been introduced in Virginia. The so-called “Repeal Act” being sponsored by Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran would reportedly remove all limits on abortion, all the way through the day of, and apparently even during birth.
The bill would remove a number of restrictions currently in place regarding late-term abortions, including doing away with the requirement that two other physicians certify a third-trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman's death or impairment of her mental or physical health. The third trimester lasts until 40 weeks.
When questioned by Virginia Delegate Todd Gilbert, Tran admitted that her bill allows for a woman to abort her baby while she’s in labor.
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.”
This bill even removes the definition of informed consent, meaning medical professionals don’t even have to warn mothers of potential risks. It also removes the need for patient consent, as well as lifting civil penalties.
This is nothing short of death-on-demand, and without disclosure.
