Kathy Tran Explains Her VA Abortion Bill While Co-Sponsor Runs For The Hills

Yesterday we wrote about Virginia having their own ‘hold my beer‘ moment in the abortion ghoul dance. The defenders of this heinous atrocity, including Governor Ralph Northam, are all butt hurt that we are calling them out. Well, Kathy Tran has decided to explain the VA abortion bill even as her co-sponsor is backpedaling madly.

Did y’all get that?

She knows women! Abortions are necessary! The regulations currently in place are MEAN and super burdensome! The other legislators who questioned me were RUDE!

She goes on to inform us that the fact is, women can already get a late-term abortion, but the hoops they have to jump through are just so hard.

As NRO’s David French found out, the bill’s changes are indeed barbaric.

The bill reduces the number of doctors required to certify the alleged medical need for an abortion from three to one, and — critically — eliminates any required showing of severity before the doctor and mother can determine that the birth would impair her physical or mental health. Under the bill’s actual text, virtually any claim of impairment would suffice to meet the act’s requirements. Anxiety? Depression? The conventional physical challenges of post-partum recovery? Any of those things could justify taking the life of a fully formed, completely viable, living infant.

This attorney’s argument in favor of the bill most certainly shows how horrific this is.

Why is this horrific? Because Kathy Tran ADMITTED during her testimony the other day that this bill allows for an abortion to take place even as the baby is being born. She was very clear and unequivocal on that point. Watch again.

So no, Kathy, we didn’t misunderstand one bit. You’ve reworked the legislation to make it easier for women to change their mind at the very last second and murder a child. You’ve reworked the legislation to make it easier for a women to claim mental distress of the made-up variety in order to murder a child just as it’s being born.

Those who are defending this are advocating infanticide and murder.

Your own co-sponsor is running for the hills on this.

A Virginia lawmaker sent an email to her constituents Wednesday night apologizing for attaching her name to a controversial abortion bill without reading it closely enough.

In a newsletter, Del. Dawn Adams, D-Richmond, said she “did not exercise due diligence” before co-sponsoring the abortion legislation with Del. Kathy Tran, D-Fairfax. Tran became the focus of a social media firestorm this week after Republicans circulated video of her saying the bill would allow abortions up until the moment of birth if one doctor certified that the mother’s physical or mental health was at risk.

It’s good that she is backpedaling. But you know what? Adams had ONE job, and that job is to work for her constituents AND make sure she fully understands all aspects of each piece of legislation she supports, sponsors, and votes for/against. She failed miserably at that job in this instance.

Folks, Ramesh Ponnuru makes a very uncomfortable point.

Roe v. Wade held that states could prohibit abortion late in pregnancy only if they made an exception for abortions meant to protect the pregnant woman’s health. Justice Harry Blackmun’s majority opinion in that case mentioned several health harms that unwanted parenthood could cause. Roe’s companion case, Doe v. Bolton — written by the same justice and handed down the same day — also suggested that health should be read broadly. As Blackmun put it, “the medical judgment may be exercised in the light of all factors — physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age — relevant to the well-being of the patient.” An exception this broad would of course swallow any prohibition: An abortionist will always be able to say that in his professional judgment, having the child would have adverse emotional or familial consequences.*

Roe V Wade was and is so broad that it’s no wonder Democrats are now feeling completely emboldened in publicly advocating for the murder of a child up to and past the point of birth.

Kathy Tran can attempt to make her case all she wants. She can attempt to use the ‘it’s for the women!’ flag. And yet we know as does she that what she is advocating for is evil. Period. Full. Stop.

  • I saw that Tucker show last night.
    I was furious.
    Tuckers guest Monica Klein (in fact ALL of his guests) should have their mike and camera pulled upon a warning from him that they are refusing to answer his question.
    She did not answer once.

    Saw that episode on Tucker. It’s not that she wouldn’t answer his questions, it’s that she couldn’t. She was unable to do any critical thinking, couldn’t do anything but recite talking points. That’s a sign of cult brainwashing.
