The pro-abortion Democrat governor who defended infanticide is now facing massive criticism after a photo emerged that appears to show Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam appearing in a photograph that shows him and someone else dressed up in a KKK hood and in blackface.

The photo, from Northam’s 1984 yearbook at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and was shows “two people, one wearing white Ku Klux Klan robes and a hood, the other with his face painted black,” The Virginia Pilot reported.

A photo from Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook shows two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.

The photo, which The Virginian-Pilot obtained a copy of Friday from the Eastern Virginia Medical School library, comes from the 1984 yearbook, the year Northam graduated.

On the half-page set aside for Northam, there is a headshot of him in a jacket and tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and a third of him sitting casually on the ground, leaning against a convertible.

The fourth photo on the half-page has two people, one wearing white Ku Klux Klan robes and a hood, the other with his face painted black. The person with the black face is also wearing a white hat, black jacket, white shirt with a bow tie and plaid pants. Both are holding canned drinks.

Northam apologized for the photo but would not say which person in it is him and would not agree to heed calls for his resignation.

“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook that is clearly racist and offensive,” he said in a statement.

“I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now,” he said.

Leading pro-life figures were quick to point out how it’s not surprising that an abortion activist would have appeared in such a picture, noting the ties between abortion and racism.

Pro-life advocates also noted how the liberal media and abortion activists who went after Brett Kavanaugh and the pro-life teens in MAGA hats have little ability to look the other way at the photo.
