Ralph Northam backlash reveals Democrats care more about old ‘black face’ photos than infanticide

The Virginia abortion bill raised a lot of ire in the pro-life community, but it was Gov. Ralph Northam who quickly took over the headlines after explaining “infanticide.”

“…I can tell you exactly what would happen, 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.”

The outrage came from the right with most on the left defending Northam’s remarks to give him cover because he was speaking in terms of a deformed baby or that late-term abortions are so rare.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to comment on Northam’s controversial sentiments.

Fast forward to some recon into Northam and the release of old yearbook photos involving Northam, a black face and KKK pic.

Now the left turned on Northam and call for his resignation.

Sen. Tim Kaine: “I no longer believe Governor Northam can effectively serve as Governor of Virginia. The events of the past 24 hours have inflicted immense pain and irrevocably broken the trust Virginians must have in their leaders. He should step down and allow the Commonwealth to begin healing.”

“The photo is racist and contrary to fundamental American values. I join my colleagues in Virginia calling on Governor Northam to do the right thing so that the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia can heal and move forward,” said Pelosi.

And then Hillary Clinton: “This has gone on too long. There is nothing to debate. He must resign.”

Chuck Schumer agreed: “I agree. It’s past time. Governor Northam should resign so Virginia can move forward.”

The list goes on and on, read here.

Silence on killing a baby after surviving an abortion or allowing a mother to call for killing the baby after birth sends a clear message of tolerance. Meanwhile, identity politics warrant an outrage over outdated yearbook photos which no one cared about until this week.

Now Senate Democrats are blocking an effort to pass legislation clarifying that babies who survive attempted abortions must receive medical care.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., rejected the motion to pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, authored by Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and co-sponsored by other Republicans.

Sasse had sought to pass the bill via unanimous consent, meaning that one senator could stop it by objecting.

“You’re either for babies or you’re defending infanticide,” Sasse said before the vote. “That’s literally what this bill is about.”

Murray said in objecting to the call for unanimous consent the U.S. already had laws against infanticide, and accused Sasse of misrepresenting the purpose of his legislation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said during his opening remarks on the Senate floor Monday that the legislation was “the very definition of something that might receive unanimous consent.”

“What could be more unanimous than this? … It’s harrowing this legislation is even necessary,” McConnell said.

He added that he hoped Democrats “don’t invent any reasons to block this bill later today. I can assure them this won’t be the last time to assure newborns are offered this final legal protection.”
