In New York, the focal point of the new abortion law is that it codified Roe v Wade into state law. Abortion is legal for any reason before “viability.” It is also legal after viability if the baby has a disability or if the purpose of the abortion is to preserve the mental or physical “health” of the mother. “Health” could mean anything. The mother could say she’s stressed out at the thought of being a parent and that could qualify for the mental health exception. The law also legalizes abortions performed by non-doctors such as nurses and nurse practitioners. Since the passing of the New York bill, the same legislation has been introduced in Vermont and Virginia. Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo also asked the Rhode Island legislator to send her the same bill. This is all on top of the six other states (Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, and Oregon) that already have no limit on abortion.
Most notably, Virginia delegate Kathy Tran, while being questioned by delegate Todd Gilbert, admitted that the bill, of which she was a primary sponsor, would allow doctors to murder a baby at 40 weeks as the mother is going into labor. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam defended Tran on Wednesday while on WTOP radio. He makes clear that the bill would allow physicians and families to murder babies by neglect even after the baby is born. “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 physician and the mother.”
Abortion supporters are now out in the open in support of infanticide and abortion during labor and delivery. Tune into The Mark Harrington Show to sift through the implications of the “new normal” for abortion advocates.
