Virginia Governor Ralph Northam defended a situation where a severely deformed newborn infant could be left to die, saying if a woman desired an abortion during labor, “a discussion would ensue” between doctors and the mother. Is this ethical?
Now Dems are arguing for infanticide...no low is low enough for them.
If you want to require resuscitation of a newborn who is severely deformed and destined for a short and painful life you should never be allowed to have a DNR.
If the mother expresses the desire for an abortion just after labor has begun, I would hope that a discussion would ensue. It’s what happens after that may be the problem.
Of course, if she makes this statement while in hard labor, I would hope it is taken with a grain of salt and any discussion would transpire after birth. Almost anything can and has been said during that time and usually not meant.
It is my understanding that he is also a doctor. His license should be pulled.
No it shouldn’t.
The moral and legal requirements would be the same here as they would for a car accident or other situation where any other human child was grievously injured.
“In reality, existing state law already provides for abortions throughout the third trimester”
This is a moot argument.
No, it’s not. He was defending an initiative to increase that to after birth as well.
Even if you’re pro-choice, it should be a no brained that doctors have a medical responsibility to do everything they can do to ensure the health and safety of a newborn infant after it has been born
