In what appears to be a classic case of terminal tone deafness, the Democratic Virginia assemblywoman who is proposing an up-to-birth abortion bill actually praised her parents on Twitter for saving her from death in communist Vietnam as a baby.
“In 1979, my parents & I fled Vietnam as boat refugees,â€ Del. Kathy Tran said in the Tweet that she originally made on Dec. 13, 2018.
â€œMy dad was a dentist in the South Vietnamese Army & went to reeducation prison,â€ she said. â€œUpon his release, my parents took me, not yet seven months old, onto the open sea. They risked our lives for hope, opportunity & freedom.â€
Tran tweeted her comments, which were pinned to the top of her account, in regards to an Atlantic story about the Trump administration’s changing U.S. policy toward â€œVietnamese migrants.â€
The story noted:Â â€œExclusive: The Trump administration has decided that Vietnamese migrants who arrived before the establishment of diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Vietnam are subject to standard immigration lawâ€”meaning they are all eligible for deportation.â€
On Monday, Tran discussed her bill in a Virginia House of Delegates subcommittee with GOP Delegate Todd Gilbert.
During the exchange, she hinted that her bill would allow a woman to have an abortion even when she’s full-term and dilating, about to give birth, CNSNews.com reported.
Gilbert:Â â€œSo, where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth â€“ she has physical signs that she is about to give birth â€“ would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified? Sheâ€™s dilating.â€
Tran:Â â€œMr. Chairman, that would be a, you know, a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make, at that point.â€
Gilbert:Â â€œI understand that. I’m asking if your bill allows that.â€
Tran:Â â€œMy bill would allow that. Yes.â€
For the record, several OB/GYN physicians have gone on the record since Tran introduced her bill and the state of New York appears to have passed a similar one to say that there is no medically necessary reason “for the health of the mother” to abort a late-third trimester baby.
â€œThereâ€™s absolutely no reason to kill a baby before delivery in the third trimester,” Dr. Omar L. Hamada, an OB/GYN and former army surgeon, told Fox News.
“Not a fetal or maternal indication â€“ what we say in medicine. If thereâ€™s a problem, and there are problems in the third trimester, both with the babies and with the mom that require delivery, just deliver the baby. We donâ€™t have to kill it.”
Abortion extremists on the Left, who permeate the Democrat Party, are trying to claim that murdering late-term babies while edging towards legalizing post-birth abortions isn’t about the newborns, it’s about “women’s health,” “women’s freedom to choose,” and “a doctor’s decision.”
This is about whether we as a society value the sanctity of life or not. Democrats increasingly are demonstrating that they don’t — as a matter of policy — even to the point of being grossly hypocritical.
