Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran, who filed legislation that would have made it legal to abort or murder a baby up to and after the point of delivery, now claims she did “nothing” to try to change existing laws.
In a bizarre and easily refuted video, Tran looks directly into a camera and claims that “women are able to access an abortion in the later stages of pregnancy. Under certain conditions, with the approval of medical doctors,” adding “I’ve done nothing to change that.”

Mere days earlier, when asked while on camera, “For an abortion at any point in the third trimester, are you changing the standard?” Tran responded quickly, “I’m changing the standard, yes.”
Her since defeated bill, which thanks to national notoriety will never leave its subcommittee, would have made it legal for a woman to give birth, then consult with a doctor, and make the decision to murder a living, viable infant.
Virginia Democrats have been in a desperate damage control mode this week after the bill became national news, and their efforts were only exacerbated when Virginia Governor Ralph Northam endorsed the bill and explained it further.
According to Northam, the bill would allow a woman to go through labor, give birth, then keep the infant comfortable while the doctor and the new mother determine whether to commit infanticide.
When asked if he regretted his statement or wished to amend it during a press conference on Thursday, Northam doubled down, saying he has no regrets, and condemned the “mischaracterization” of his statement and the “personal insults” some made against him.
For her part, Tran appears to care more about the lives of caterpillars than children, as on the same day she filed the infanticide bill, she also filed a bill that would protect the lives of gypsy moths and cankerworms for several months each year.

Senate Democrats Shut Down Late-Term Abortion Bans, Born-Alive Protections
This party supports late-term abortion.
Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.
The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.
The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.
The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.
In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.
Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.
Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.
Today the Senate was asked an important question: where is your line for protecting life? Is it when the child can feel pain in the womb? Or even after the child is born? https://t.co/B16HQ1ldzQ

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
