It seems that whole slipper slope phenomenon is real because just a week after New York passed a bill that allows late-term abortions, other states across the country are starting to follow suit.
In fact, Democrat lawmakers in two different states have introduced similar bills that will allow for abortions all the way up to birth.
This, ladies and gentlemen, could truly signal the end of our great experiment in liberty. A society that is immoral and refuses to protect the rights of its most vulnerable citizens will not last long.
Kathy Tran, a Democrat who serves in Virginia’s House of Delegates, introduced legislation last week that would effectively eliminate most existing regulations on abortion in the Old Dominion State and even allow abortions up to the moment of birth.
The bill, known as the Repeal Act, would eliminate the requirement that second trimester abortions be performed in a hospital and eliminate “all the procedures and processes … required to effect a woman’s informed written consent to the performance of an abortion.”
Most egregiously, the bill would allow third trimester abortions if a physician believes the child would even impair a woman’s mental health. The bill states:
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.
On Monday, Tran, in an exchange with Virginia House of Delegates Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R), openly admitted the bill would permit abortions up to 40 weeks, the length of an average pregnancy.
Gilbert asked: “How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated it would impair the mental health of the woman?”
Tran responded: “I mean, through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.”
To clarify, Gilbert asked if that means the “end of the third trimester,” to which Tran said: “Yes. I don’t think we have a limit in the bill.”
Tran later went on to admit that this would also include aborting a child as a woman was in labor about to deliver the child.
Do you folks realize what this means? These people are literally talking about killing babies. This is the legalization of murder, all based on arbitrary guidelines, with the end goal in mind of destroying the family unit.
There can be no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
It’s a sad, sad time in our country when babies are slaughtered as they are being born, all so the mother can have sex with reckless abandon without having to worry about the consequences of her actions.
Shame on us as a nation for allowing this to happen. We have crossed a threshold, and to be perfectly honest, it’s not likely we will come back from this one.
