A Virginia House Representative has proposed another radical abortion bill, allowing abortions up to the moment of birth.
Representative Kathy Tran proposed House Bill 2491 that would allow abortions late into the third trimester. “It strikes out language in the current law allowing third-trimester abortions only when the pregnancy “is likely to result in the death of the woman or substantially and irremediably impair the mental or physical health of the woman.” The bill takes out “substantially and irremediably,” thereby allowing abortions for any loosely defined “health” reason,” according to Life News.
Taking it a step further, according to LifeNews viral video, Rep. Tran states that her proposed bill would allow legal abortion even if the mother is in labor.
Delegate Todd Gilbert asks, “where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth, that she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion if she was so certified? She’s dilating.”
Rep. Tran – the mother of four children- responds, “My bill would allow that, yes.”
Attempting to relieve the pressure from herself, Rep. Tran tries multiple times to avoid answering specific questions about her bill. Stating that, “I don’t think we have a limit in the bill”, Rep. Tran seems unsure of what all her bill entails.
A further look into the bill indicates that HB-2491 would also allow for first and second trimester abortions to be performed by non-medical doctors and showing pregnant women an ultrasound prior to an abortion would no longer be a requirement.
The loud pro-abortion advocate, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, has no problem with Rep. Tran’s statements as he defended infanticide after the release of this viral video.
Thankfully, this barbaric bill has been DEFEATED!
Life Action News reported,
“Live Action News reached out to Rep. C. Todd Gilbert’s office who said the bill will not leave the subcommittee and no action will be taken on it. The Washington Free Beacon said the Repeal Act “when put to a vote… was defeated” and The Daily Progress reports that it was killed. The Washington Times and other sources are reporting that the bill has been tabled or suspended. Nearly half of the Democratic caucus supported it, despite the fact that it allowed for the abortion of viable babies even if the mother was in active labor.”

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
