Chairman's Message

Barbaric Abortion Legislation


This week many Americans were shocked by seeing Democrat members of the New York Legislature celebrating after passing a bill legalizing the abortion of full-term babies, even at the point of the mother’s dilation.  The bill authorizes lethal injection of these babies, even when New York law forbids lethal injection for its criminals convicted of first degree murder!

In Virginia, a similar bill was introduced in the General Assembly by Rep. Kathy Tran, a Democratic, who in testimony before sub-committee said the bill would allow abortions up until the moment of birth.

Fortunately, because Republicans have a majority (by a slim margin), this bill was tabled.

But Ralph Northam, Virginia’s Democrat Governor and a pediatric neurologist, went public to support Rep. Tran’s bill. He carefully articulated how under the bill, a child could be born alive and “left comfortably” or resuscitated should the mother so choose.

“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, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Under the leadership of the Democratic Party, attempts are being made to take America and Virginia to a new low of active, legal infanticide! I am NOT okay with that direction. Our Republican Party and 5th District leadership is not okay with that direction. And I hope that Americans and Virginians will not be okay with that direction.

This November, Virginian’s will once again have the choice of who will represent them in Richmond. In 2017, a flood of far-left liberal Democrats were elected, almost giving them a majority in the House and Senate. It is critical that conservative Republicans are elected this year in order to stop the barbaric legislation being pushed upon us. 

It is time for every citizen to stand up and engage. Enough is enough!
