WARNING: The following may be triggering. I’m angry. God help us.
You can say that it’s no big deal, or that I’m just mischaracterizing the whole thing, you know, like the way the left did the Covington boys in D.C..
But if you can watch the video below and listen to the words of Governor Ralph Northam as he defends the Repeal Act and still think this man is being unjustly condemned, tell my why you are not living in denial.
Let’s go back and look at this, if you didn’t catch it the first time. The Governor of Virginia said:
“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “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.”
Correct me if I’m wrong (I’m not), but don’t many people believe that until the baby, the infant, has breathed its first breath, it’s not technically a person? This is the general argument given by many on the left, specifically those who support abortion. Some even use Genesis 2:7 as the foundation for their religious justification for abortion, claiming that the Bible describes a person becoming “alive” only after receiving the “breath of life.”
So what, then, does Gov. Northam mean when he says that the infant would be kept “comfortable”? And what is it about a DELIVERED INFANT that’s not a BABY? …AND, if I may ask, how does resuscitation come into play???
Guys, I’m not sorry to tell you this, but what the Governor is trying to describe as nice and caring and letting the parents and doctors make a right decision for them is nothing short of MURDER!
Abortions at any other time in the pregnancy aside, you can’t sit there and tell me that it is OK under any moral, ethical, or legal circumstance to birth a living, breathing, baby – regardless of its deformities – and then have a “discussion” over whether or not the child should live!
Oh, and the whole argument he makes about men shouldn’t be keeping a woman from making decisions about her own body – well, when the BABY is BORN it is NOT HER BODY! Never was in the first place, and it certainly isn’t when it’s outside her womb!
Anyone who can support a law like this should never condemn the Nazis and their concentration camps. Anyone who supports a law like this, knowing full well a baby could be born and allowed to die on a table (if not be directly killed by the physician), should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.
THIS. IS. MURDER.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
That’s a mighty big if.
Correct. But let’s look at this from another perspective. What’s it going to take? Well, consider the previous verse…
If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; – 2 Chronicles 7:13
We live in a country that is rapidly heading toward full-blown idolatry, bringing with it even the people of God. Yet, we see little of nationwide calamity – yet. What’s it going to take before this people turns its heart back to God? Will it ever? I kinda doubt it at this point. America is NOT God’s covenant people, and He has not sworn any oaths to us regarding our longevity or land, so like other nations of the past that God allowed to prosper when they did justly, then destroyed them in judgment when they crossed a line, I believe we are on the chopping block and the ax is already being lifted.
They’re going to provoke real Christians to stand up. Then things will get interesting.
I can only hope and pray that the left has crossed a line where Christians, whatever party, will stand up and be counted.
But this really isn’t just the left. The right wing will come out and talk trash and act like heroes but do nothing. They’re all in this together. Meanwhile, we the people have nobody in our corner but God. But we act as though we have nobody…
It gets worse. I just saw “get well” cards at a grocery store for transitioning males and females. Just 5 years ago this wouldn’t be. It’s both a scary and exciting time to be living in. The wheat and the tares.
This is so alarming! I’m sure Canada will propose similar legislation. Even back in the 80s, I knew of a case where the doctors wanted to starve a newborn to death because of a birth defect. The parents didn’t agree, thankfully.
Yet England let little Charlie die, right?
Am I thinking of the wrong name, or was there more than one? I’m thinking there was more than one, right?
I’ve only heard of Charlie and then Alphie. But I’m sure there are far more.
True. I worry that Canada, with government subsidized health care, will jump on the bandwagon for economic reasons. Assisted suicide will soon evolve into “compassionate euthanasia”, the mentally ill, the developmentally challenged, and the invalids will be considered too expensive to keep alive, and those who can’t speak for themselves will have their right to life decided by someone else. The moral decline is happening shockingly fast.
I think of all the arguments about personhood and “yes, the fetus is a distinct human being and the cells are living but what does ‘living’ mean and when does the law recognize it as a person?”
Like, if you’re having to play that game, you should know you’re already deep into something questionable and disturbing…
But it doesn’t stop there, so then we see people making a case for post-birth abortion. An actual persuasive case for “wouldn’t it be alright if parents could decide at age 1 whether they want to continue raising a child?”
And you ask, naturally, “what’s next? If we allow this, what other madness are we all going to pretend is okay?”
They love to tell us, “Well, the slippery slope argument is a logical fallacy, so you’re not making a persuasive rational argument for your case.”
Sure, fine, but what I am doing is watching as the bounds of what we call acceptable keep moving farther and farther until now you’re justifying post-birth abortion. It might be a logical fallacy but it’s also an observable reality.
Part of me wants to believe he misspoke or incorrectly characterized the details… but it seems clear as day, and delivered calmly.
I have slid down some slippery slopes, so I know they are real. As a matter of fact, I saw a YouTube video just last night of people falling off cliffs and stuff. And you know what? Once they started sliding down the slippery slope there was not stopping until they hit the bottom. So, I completely agree with your statement that “It might be a logical fallacy but it’s also an observable reality.” I’ve seen it, done it, and now I see it playing out in the “life” debate.
It’s sorta akin to the statement: “It ain’t paranoid if they’re really after you.” It ain’t a fallacy if it’s really happening – and it is.
Murder is murder, no matter how refined it sounds. One of the seven things that our God hates is: “Shedding of innocent Blood”. Whew, I would not want the wrath of our God upon me.:(
What he proposes is horrific! Thanks for speaking out! ❤️
Christians have sat silent for far to long. Our altars need to be used and we should be praying and seeking His forgiveness for our complacencies and then in love speak the truth. We all need to seek Him and allow Holy Spirit to awaken our dry bones. Otherwise we will loose our nation. I am sorry this nation was founded on God and EVERY Federal monument has scripture inscribed on each monument. Murder is murder whether it be human or animal but animals become endangered species and federally protected Who protects those humans who need it the most? . God have mercy on our nation because we are sliding down a very sad place and Gods hand will be removed.
Bro. Anthony, you are so right. The Ten Commandments says, “You shall Not murder.” Yes, He allows wars to keep evil in check, and for our country’s defense. But outright, premeditated murder against another human being, (especially a baby!) is beyond unacceptable. I would hate to be in the governor’s “shoes” on Judgement Day. (And for those of you who disagree, Yes, there will be a Judgement Day!)
