It was Virginia delegate Kathy Tran who brazenly confirmed this week that the bill she sponsored would allow a woman in the process of giving birth to decide to have an abortion instead.
Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam then endorsed the idea, stating: “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 physicians and the mother.”
Rush Limbaugh warned on Tuesday that Democrats are “not backing down” on abortion, they “are doubling down.”
“The Democrats and child murder, infanticide, they’re not backing down. They’re not trying to dial it back a little bit. They are doubling down on what they’re talking about,” he said.
“What is it with Democrats and making people comfortable before you kill ’em? You remember ABC had this televised one-hour special from the White House back during the Obama administration where Obama was gonna answer questions from the American serfs about health care. And a woman stood up. And I have said over and over again, when I saw this, I couldn’t believe I was seeing it in America.
“But a woman stood up, an American citizen and asked the president of the United States about her mother. Her mother was close to 100 years old and had a tremendous will to live, but needed some kind of surgery, maybe a new kidney or something in order to live. And the woman wanted to know if under Obamacare her mother would be allowed to get that procedure and continue living. And Obama looked right her in the eyes and said, ‘No. I don’t think in that situation, uh, we have to make a determination on, uh, who — who — can’t afford it for everybody’ and went on and on and on and finally said in a situation like that we would give ’em a pill and make them comfortable.”
Limbaugh pointed out the defeats the abortion empire has suffered in the past two years with a pro-life president putting two justices on the Supreme Court and other federal courts.
“They just hate, hate, hate. And they love just throwing it back in our face. They love cramming their corruption and their perversion and their sickness right down our throats. And it causes them to get a standing O in the New York State Senate in celebration. In the state of Virginia, there’s nobody apologizing, there’s nobody standing up and trying to walk this back. There’s no Democrat out there saying, ‘Wait a minute. This is not really what –’ No. They’re all doubling down on this.”
He said it’s all part of a strategy to support abortion at any time for any reason.
“This is part of a nationwide plan, folks, from elected Democrats in a lot of states. New York, where you’ve already heard the audio of standing ovations after it was announced that children can be aborted up to the due date and that children can be aborted by nonmedical personnel. Rhode Island has similar legislation. Vermont has similar legislation. New Mexico is getting in on this action. Their quest is to make it a constitutional right! In New York, it has been proclaimed constitutional now.
“All of that late-term abortions up to and including during birth, right before the due date, nonmedical personnel. What are we gonna call that, the fourth trimester? You know, we always used the terms these people use. You know, we debate it on their terms. They get to set the language. That’s why you can’t call this ‘murder.’ You can’t! No, no. This is not a murder. This is abortion. It’s inviable tissue mass and so forth. But they’re trying to get late-term abortion passed all over this country very fast now,” he said.
He warned: “This is the beginning of the next phase of where they want to take abortion. New York state’s beat them to it. New York state’s way ahead of them in Virginia. This is an attempt — you know what happens. It’s the reverse of defining deviancy down. So they make the proposal to make it legal to terminate the life of a baby after it’s born or at the moment it’s being born. And everybody has the cow reaction, ‘Oh, my God. It’s horrible, my God.’ You get that out of your system, and maybe two months later, six months later you come around and propose it again. And the reaction is a little less strenuous.
“And then you come back in maybe a year or two, you propose it again. This is how they wear people down on these things, by continually coming back, returning to issues and trying to get them passed. No defeat is ever a defeat. So what this is is a marker for where they want to go. They’re not there yet in Virginia but it’s where they want to go.”
