Another example of what will happen if Republicans lose the House of Delegates and the State Senate, Democrats will remove all restrictions on abortion, including abortion on demand up until just before the child is born. A similar bill has recently passed in New York.
The bill’s chief patron, Democrat Kathy K.L. Tran explains her bill would allow for women in active labor to request that her baby be killed:
The text of HB 2491:
Abortion; eliminate certain requirements. Eliminates the requirement that an abortion in the second trimester of pregnancy and prior to the third trimester be performed in a hospital. The bill eliminates all the procedures and processes, including the performance of an ultrasound, required to effect a woman’s informed written consent to the performance of an abortion; however, the bill does not change the requirement that a woman’s informed written consent be first obtained. The bill eliminates the requirement that two other physicians certify that a third trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health, as well as the need to find that any such impairment to the woman’s health would be substantial and irremediable. The bill also removes language classifying facilities that perform five or more first-trimester abortions per month as hospitals for the purpose of complying with regulations establishing minimum standards for hospitals.
According to physicians, there is NEVER a reason for a viable infant to be aborted. They can be delivered and placed for adoption. Always. There are hundreds of thousands of Americans desperate to adopt an infant. It is interesting that Delegate Tran’s physician witnesses did not appear. I suspect that’s because Delegate Tran was unable to find a doctor who would back this disgusting bill allowing the killing of infants.
All patrons of this horrendous bill can be found here. Patrons include two Delegates from Loudoun County, David Reid 32nd district, and Wendy Gooditis of the 10th district. Senator Jennifer Boysko of Loudoun is also a patron. Let’s vote them OUT in November. They are far too radical for Loudoun County. Anyone who supports this disgusting bill should be defeated in November.
