**UPDATE** In response to an announcement from Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran, and State Senators George Barker and Scott Surovell calling off tomorrow’s scheduled town hall in Lorton, VA, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List offered the following comment:
“We are disappointed Delegate Tran and her colleagues chose to call off their town hall rather than face pro-life constituents, who were looking forward to the opportunity to voice their alarm over Delegate Tran’s radical abortion bill in person. Tran has taken to social media attempting to defend her legislation that, by her own admission, would allow abortion on demand right up through the moment of birth. Now she needs to listen to the voters. Our peaceful demonstration will take place as scheduled.”
Virginia Delegate Tran, Governor Northam Reveal Support for Abortion, Infanticide
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The national pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) along with The Virginia Family Foundation, Virginia Society for Human Life, Students for Life, and others will hold a press conference in Lorton, VA this Saturday, February 2nd, to voice opposition to Virginia State Rep. Kathy Tran’s bill to allow abortions right up until birth. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam — who claims to uphold Virginia values — admitted on Wednesday: “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.”
The press conference will take place ahead of Delegate Tran’s public townhall event in Lorton, VA.
“On the heels of New York’s radical expansion of abortion, Delegate Tran’s bill and Governor Northam’s statements reveal with alarming clarity what the modern Democratic Party stands for and their agenda for our nation – abortion on demand, up until the moment of delivery and even beyond. This position is irreconcilable with the beliefs, values, and desires of most Americans,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List.
