Michael Medved: Democratic Push for Late-Term Abortion is Repulsive and Suicidal

Democrats across the country seem insanely determined to pursue a repulsive political strategy to expand access to late-term abortions, despite overwhelming opposition to the gruesome practice.

In Virginia, for instance, the law already allows women to get-late term abortions if giving birth would “result in the death of the woman or substantially and irreparably impair the mental or physical health of the woman.”

The proposed new law would remove the words “substantially and irreparably” and allow abortion with the certification of a single doctor, not three as currently required- meaning one doctor, citing concerns for his patient’s mental health, could abort the baby at the very moment of birth.

This is extreme, radical and it’s outrageous—and it’s guaranteed to unite Republicans in opposition and damage Democratic prospects for 2020 and beyond.
