Ostensibly a holdover from Virginia’s long tradition of eugenics and forced abortions, did you know that the Commonwealth will pay for your abortion should your baby have… um… deformities?
State Senator Tom Garrett (R-Lynchburg) is carrying a bill that would fix this holdover.
…and true to their DNA of abortionpalooza, the Senate Democrats are outraged — just outraged! — that Garrett would even contemplate dismantling their post-eugenics miracle. From their release:
SB 826 would end the subsidies for abortions for Medicaid-eligible women who are carrying a fetus which would be would be born with a “gross and totally incapacitating physical deformity or mental deficiency.”
Gee — wonder who that includes? Senator Barbara “the Barbarian” Favola (D-Arlington) was just giddy with excitement…
“SB 826 will leave the poorest Virginia women without any options when their pregnancy goes terribly wrong…. These decisions are personal and intimate decisions that should be made by a woman in consultation with her family and her doctor. Poor women should not have their rights trampled on by the Commonwealth…
Wasn’t aware that our Founding Fathers froze in the snows of Valley Forge and bled in the battlements of Yorktown to provide Favola with taxpayer-funded abortions, but I digress — no one’s “rights” are being trampled (the baby in the womb perhaps being excluded from the conversation) — other than perhaps the taxpayer being forced to pay for a procedure that Democrats just seem delirious with joy to impose upon low-income women.
Now… want to be really offended? State Senator Don McEachin (D-Richmond) has an opinion on… um… life unworthy of life.
Senator Garrett would force vulnerable women to bring a child tragically incompatible with life into the world.
Read that again.
“Tragically incompatible with life.”
Determined by whom, Senator McEachin? You?
Eugenics has a dangerous and vile history in Virginia, creating a system where in the 1920s and 1930s the government was forcibly sterilizing human beings on a rate that caught the attention of certain Nazis back in Germany, who studied the “racial hygiene” experiments spearheaded by Margaret Sanger and the radicals at Planned Parenthood.
SB 826 is a good bill. For the Senate Democrats to go all the way off on a limb and saw it off just to be intellectually consistent in their celebration of abortion-at-all-costs is a sign of policy consistency perhaps… but the human element has been ripped right out.
Rather than creating a society that simply kills those deemed “incompatible with life” — why aren’t we creating systems that value and protect innocent life?
…because I don’t know about you, but this person?
…is a saint. Not “tragically incompatible with life” as McEachin and the Senate Democrats openly state. That’s barbarism.
