At a rally with tens of thousands of supporters last night, President Trump took another opportunity to expose the Democratic Party’s extreme agenda of abortion on demand through birth and infanticide. He called out Governor Ralph Northam for supporting infanticide and letting babies die who survive abortions.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late-term abortion. [Booing] Ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb, right up to the moment of birth. [Booing] And if you look at Virginia, the governor of Virginia, he was even talking about essentially, you would say an execution. He was talking after the baby is born, the doctor will talk to the mother and they’ll make a decision as to whether or not that baby lives. This is a radical Democrat idea! That’s why I’ve asked Congress to prohibit extreme late-term abortion because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from God.

Trump slammed Gov. Ralph Northam, who said on radio show that parents and doctors can have a conversation about whether to revive a baby who survived an abortion. Northam later defended his pro-infanticide remarks. Northam apparently thinks it’s okay to kill a baby once the infant is fully delivered.

“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother,” he said.

Later Northam doubled down on his support for infanticide via a spokesman, who essentially said the governor was only talking about infanticide in cases of disabled babies. Then Northam said he had no apologies for promoting infanticide.
