Killing Babies in Virginia (God Have Mercy!)
VA gov on abortion this morning:— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) January 30, 2019
“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 & mother" pic.twitter.com/cc15pVLjIQ
I previously planned to share a different post today, but could not get past this clip I came across of the governor of Virginia literally expressing his consent of the killing of babies who have just been born. You can view his comments above. In my previous blog post regarding late term abortion in New York, I pressed the question of why stop with babies in the womb? I didn’t expect someone to be so forthright so soon, but it would appear the governor of Virginia is trying to one-up New York.
This is grotesque. This is murder. It is sickening to hear the governor talk so nonchalantly about murdering babies. If we don’t talk, who will? If we don’t share, who will? If we don’t stand up then who will?
The amendments being made to Virginia’s abortion laws can be found here in full text with the relevant portion being at § 18.2-74. The bill is not concerned with the viability of the fetus and a major change being made removes the requirement that the pregnancy would "substantially and irremediably" impair the woman's health. This would essentially allow a late term abortion for any reason although they would have you to believe that isn’t the case.
As I’ve said before, every human is made in the image of God. With speech such as the Governor of Virginia’s, the United States is well on it’s way to being those who sacrifice their babies to foreign gods now both in the womb and outside the womb.
As Christians we need to be praying for our nation now more than ever. God, grant us repentance. God have mercy on us.
