Planned Parenthood Donated Millions to Virginia Governor Who Made Abortion Comments

Planned Parenthood, one of the largest abortion providers in the United States, donated millions of dollars to the Virginia governor who made controversial abortion comments on Jan. 30.

The Virginia affiliate of Planned Parenthood threw its support behind Ralph Northam, a Democrat, in August 2017, dropping $3 million and providing close support, deploying canvassers to knock on 300,000 doors and sending mailers to another 400,000 homes.

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia confirmed the donation and support to the Washington Post. While Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie voiced opposition to abortion unless it was in the case of rape, incest, or when a mother’s life was at stake, Northam voiced support for abortion even in the second and third trimesters, despite the majority of Americans being against late abortions.

“Northam has been a key ally to abortion groups, making the issue a top priority during his time in Richmond,” the openly liberal Post stated.

Earlier in 2017, Planned Parenthood and other liberal groups launched a $2 million advertising campaign that had negative ads against Gillespie, claiming that he didn’t have the right stance on so-called women’s issues.

Gillespie responded to The Hill, saying: “It’s no surprise that Planned Parenthood would spend millions of dollars on Ralph Northam’s behalf, given his extreme positions like supporting abortions in the eighth or ninth month or just because the unborn child is a girl.”

Northam has acknowledged the support and told Ballotpedia he was proud to have the backing of the group. “Ralph is proud to have a 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood,” his office told the website. “Ralph will continue to be a brick wall, stopping attacks on reproductive rights and access to health care.”

He also held multiple campaign events at Planned Parenthood locations in the state.

VA gov on abortion this morning:

“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"

15.5K people are talking about this

On the eve of the 2018 elections, Planned Parenthood reminded supporters that it endorsed Northam, saying he and other candidates have “taken bold actions in support of Planned Parenthood.”

Northam caused an uproar on Wednesday, Jan. 30, when he appeared to say during a radio interview that a woman could have a baby and then decided whether to kill it or not, a radical view that critics called “infanticide.”

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. 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,” he said. “And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Northam later released a statement in response to the backlash but it seemed to confirm what he said, though restricting the killing to babies with “severe fetal abnormalities” or those that doctors deemed “nonviable.”

Northam's office responds to questions about his comments on WTOP earlier today:

His comments came in support of the Repeal Act, a Democrat-backed bill that would have changed abortion legality in Virginia.

Currently, women can have abortions up to the moments before birth but only if three doctors certify that continuing with the pregnancy would endanger the woman’s life or “substantially and irremediably” impair the woman’s health.

The Repeal Act would only require one doctor to certify the pregnancy would “impair the mental or physical health of the women” and would delete the words “substantially and irremediably” from the line referring to the requirement for a woman to get an abortion so late.

A Virginia House subcommittee that considered the bill voted 5-3 to table it on Jan. 28. The office of Majority Leader Todd Gilbert, a Republican, told anti-abortion group Live Action on Wednesday that the bill will not leave the subcommittee and no further action will be taken on it.

What are they going to discuss?  The baby is born...too late to discuss abortion.  Euthanasia?  What kind of insanity is this?

The only thing to discuss at that point is murder. What else do you call it when you intentionally terminate the life of another living breathing human being?

Remember this from the 2016 Presidential debate?

Hillary has no problem with full term abortions. In fact, Baby killing is routine for these monsters.

Virginia Governor Says He Doesn’t Regret What He Said--or Way He Said It—About Letting Born Baby Die
https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/terence-p-jeffrey/virginia-governor-sa...

That's because these people have no souls or compassion.

Let's just say the kid had down syndrome & the woman is inequipped to care for the child; for sure there's plenty of willing people & resources to take over. 

Murder (Late Abortion) by any other name is still murder.

The US military is the real culprit who fucked-upped the definition of murder. Not the abortionists. Well they're both the same. They just target different age ranges.

Any government that condones the murder of the unborn and newly born can be just as willing to murder their adult citizens! Why can't the idiots see that the Democrats are just another incarnation of Communists dedicated to bringing down America as we know it? Fucking disgusting!

Just think all the charges against Gosnell could be dropped because they would just be the same horror show this fucker was conducting! Jesus this is insane!
