Policies questioned

To the Journal editor:

Earlier this year, Gov. Cuomo of New York signed into law the Reproductive Health Act that, among other things, expands abortion from 24 weeks to full term, and removes legal protection for babies who survive the abortion procedure.

At least one other state is now scrambling to follow suit; Virginia House Representative Kathy Tran has introduced a bill that would legalize an abortion even while the mother is in labor.

When Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam attempted to defend the bill recently, he ended up shocking people further by stating that an unwanted infant who was born alive could simply be left to die.

If these laws don’t disturb us to the core, then what could? Who’s the next group to lose its legal protection?

Many of us feel that radical laws like these are all simply the logical result of legalized abortion in this country. I would, however, like to encourage pro-lifers with the thought that these new bills merely prove the desperation of pro-abortion lawmakers lately.

I believe that Roe v. Wade will be overturned in my lifetime and that America will once again begin to heal as a nation.
