Democrats mean what they say, abortions allowed up until the moment of birth and for some, like former Governor Ralph Northam, even after a child is born.
Currently Democrats are claiming Republicans want to ban abortion in Virginia. For instance the excellent Republican candidate for the State Senate in the 31st district, Juan Pablo Segura, has a Democrat opponent constantly running a TV ad saying he wants to ban all abortions, a position he has never taken. It’s simply a lie but that has never stopped a Democrat.
Now the Republicans are responding, explaining their position on abortion with a new ad.
From the Washington Post:
“Voters have a very distinct choice,” said Garren Shipley, spokesman for the House Republican Caucus, which paid for what he called a “six-figure” ad campaign. “Republicans have been absolutely clear from the get-go” that they favor a 15-week limit with exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the pregnant person, he said. “But Democrats can’t give you a straight answer about what they want to do.”
(Please see the comment below from Garren Shipley. The Post misquoted him. He did not say “pregnant person”, he said mother.)
