No Regrets: VA Gov. Stands By Abortion After Birth Comments


Governor Ralph Northam says he doesn’t have any regrets about the controversial statements he made on abortion Wednesday.

“Do you regret what you said yesterday or the way you said it?” a reporter asked Northam in regards to comments he previously made on a radio station.

“No I don't,” Northam replied at a press conference Thursday.  “I appreciate the question. I'm a physician. I'm also the governor. But when I'm asked questions a lot of times it is put in the context of a being a physician, again realizing you know, how we approach, how we manage patients, how we offer advice and counsel. So no, I don't have any regrets.”

Earlier in the conference, Northam positioned the topic as one of “reproductive health.”

"Virginia Democrats are on the side of ensuring women have access to the healthcare they need. There is a fundamental difference between us and the Republicans, in what we believe on a woman's right to choose. We believe legislators, most of whom are men, should not be making decisions about women's choices for their reproductive health." 

Speaking on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” Wednesday, Northam defended his support of a bill proposed in the Virginia Assembly that would legalize elective abortions on demand through the ninth month of pregnancy all the way up until the moment of birth.

When asked to respond to public outrage over the proposal, Northam seemed to suggest that not only can babies be terminated up until the moment they’re bornbut that full-term, born-alive infants can be left to die without medical care if the mother wishes.
