The Governor of Virginia: Lets Be Civil About Killing Newborns

By Michael Brown

For those who question whether abortion is really baby killing" the governor of Virginia Ralph Northam has left us no doubt. Not only does he advocate the possible killing of a newborn baby he wants us to be civil" when discussing it. 

This is reminiscent of Nazi leaders discussing the slaughter of Jewish children women and men in icy dispassionate terms the way an accountant would discuss balancing the books. Such is the face of evil.

Earlier in the week it was reported that During a radio interview on Wednesday morning Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) seemed to endorse killing an infant after it has already been delivered alive (specifically in the case of a baby surviving an abortion).

In the scenario described by Northam a baby would be born alive and resuscitated if necessary and then doctors and the mother could have a discussion which based on context would determine whether or not the child would be killed. While pro-life advocates view all abortion as infanticide what Northam described would be infanticide by any definition."

This of course is the deadly and logical progression of the spirit of abortion. 

It is not satisfied with terminating the life of a 12-week-old baby which could not live outside the womb. It is not satisfied with terminating the life of a 32-week-old baby which could live outside the womb. It must also kill the baby outside the womb if the baby somehow managed to survive an abortion.

Thats what the infamous Kermit Gosnell did. Killing babies inside the womb wasnt enough.

To repeat: This is the deadly and logical progression.

Thats why in 1995 President Clinton vetoed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. Then 20 years later in 2015 President Obama promised to veto the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (HR 3504). 

As stated by Carol Tobias president of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) President Obamas subservience to the abortion lobby is so complete that he now threatens to use his pen to protect the abortionist who would kill a baby born alive rather than to protect that helpless baby."

Getting back to the Gov. Northam after his initial comments drew so much controversy a reporter asked him Some members of your party have said privately that and maybe one publicly that your comments yesterday could have been more precise or they werent helpful."

So he was asked Do you think do you regret what you said yesterday or the way you said it?"

Northam replied without hesitation: No I dont."

And then this which is utterly baffling and completely contrary to the life-saving ethic of the medical profession: Im a physician. Im also the governor."

He continued But when Im asked questions a lot of the times it is put in the context of being a physician again realizing how we approach how we manage patients how we offer advice and counseling so no I dont have any regrets."

So he had no regrets about making his barbarous comments about killing a newborn baby. (And remember: The context of those comments was the proposal of a new abortion Virginia law that would have allowed a full-term pregnant woman who was already dilating to choose to abort the baby even for alleged mental health reasons.)

None of that troubled the governor.

Instead he said But I do find that how my comments I did answer that question I regret that those comments have been mischaracterized the personal insults towards me I really find disgusting."

No Gov. Northam. 

It was your comments that were disgusting sir. It was your beyond-extreme pro-abortion baby-killing words that were disgusting. 

And while I regret that some people have responded to your ill-spoken words with ugly words of their own you sir bear the responsibility for making such an evil suggestion.

Or perhaps we should expand the parents discussion" about whether to let any handicapped baby live? Or what about any unwanted baby? Maybe kill that one too?

And yet theres more.

Gov. Northam ended his response with this: So again as I said in my comments about this earlier we can agree to disagree but lets be civil about it."

What? Lets agree to disagree" about the ethics of infanticide? Lets be civil" about terminating the life of a newborn?

With all respect sir that is not going to happen. Not as long as there are Americans with a conscience. Not as long as there are Americans with a heart.

We do recognize that abortion can sometimes be an agonizingly difficult choice for a pregnant woman like a 16-year-old raped by her drunken uncle. While we still say that abortion was the wrong choice we do not condemn the teen as a moral monster.

In contrast just as New Yorks new abortion law is monstrous and just as the failed Virginia proposal is monstrous so also the governors comments are monstrous and beyond.

Gov. Northam we will never agree to disagree" with you about infanticide. As Vice President Pence wrote what youre advocating is morally reprehensible and evil."

May the Lord grant you repentance.
