Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has had a rough couple of weeks.
First, he jumped onboard with some of the strictest state-wide gun-laws in the nation. Second, he declared a State of Emergency for the most peaceful pro-gun protest in recent memory. And today, he was reamed by President Donald Trump at the annual March for Life rally.
“We love the Commonwealth of Virginia, but what is going on in Virginia?” Trump asked the pro-life crowd, according to TheBlaze. “The governor stated that he would execute a baby after birth; you remember that.”
It’d be hard to forget Northam’s controversial comments from last year, where he blurred the lines between abortion and infanticide while discussing a state-level abortion bill during a radio interview.
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam said. “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.”
Trump lauded the activists attending the 74th annual March for Life, concluding his speech with a call to remember the importance of each and every life brought into the world.
“We cannot know what our citizens yet unborn will achieve, the dreams they will imagine, the masterpieces they will create, the discoveries they make,” the president said. “But we know this: Every life brings love into this world.”
