Virginia Voters Beware: Terry McAuliffe Stands With Late-Term Abortion
life news ^ | Matthew Clark

Terry McAuliffe is bringing his radical pro-abortion agenda to a whole new level.

McAuliffe is joining forces with the standard-bearer for late-term abortion (i.e. the killing of a viable baby), Wendy Davis, literally fundraising off the brutal destruction of human life and endangering women (though it’s not the first time).

Davis is the pro-abortion legislator who inspired a mob to literally shut down the Texas legislature earlier this year in order to prevent a bill from passing that would ban late-term abortions and ensure that abortion clinics abide under reasonable health standards.

Now, she is joining forces with McAuliffe to bring her radical agenda to Virginia. This weekend, she sent an email on behalf of McAuliffe attacking Ken Cuccinelli for supporting laws that require abortion clinics to abide by even the most basic health standards.

The Virginia law she attacks in her email prevents a Kermit Gosnell from ever preying on women in Virginia or committing his abhorrent form of late-term abortions here. Gosnell is directly responsible for the death of a Virginia woman who sought an abortion in the unsafe conditions of Gosnell’s clinic in Pennsylvania. Virginia law would have prevented Gosnell from committing his heinous acts in those abysmal conditions. Yet, Gosnell was allowed to operate his clinic. As a result, this Virginia woman and her baby died. Neither had to, and in Virginia, undoubtedly, neither would have.

Yet, Davis and McAuliffe call the law that prevents those same dangerous conditions in Virginia “medically unnecessary regulations.”

Davis and McAuliffe are seeking to usher in a regulatory system (or lack thereof) in Virginia that would invite Gosnells to prey on women and babies with impunity – abortions up until or even after birth and no safety requirements in clinics. That is a War on Women.

Democrats have gone all-in for abortion running a pro-abortion triumvirate in Virginia (Mark Herring earlier this year placed access to abortion as one of the top three issues facing Virginia).

Davis is the hero of the most radical fringes of the “pro-choice” community, where the only choice is more abortion, no matter the cost.

Davis and McAuliffe can seek to recast what happened in Texas as an “attempt to limit women’s access to health care,” but it was a bill to limit abortion after 20 weeks and ensure abortion clinics operate under basic safety standards. They can call the unlawful shutdown of the Texas legislature a “people’s filibuster,” but it was an unruly mob shouting “hail Satan.” They can ignore the horror of Gosnell, but Virginia law and Attorney General Cuccinelli are standing on the side of life and women’s safety.


If that’s the kind of Virginia McAuliffe wants to usher in, I’m sure the voters of Virginia will reject it. McAuliffe has no answers to jobs and is avoiding questions about federal investigations of his failing businesses; in desperation he turns to the politics of the abortion distortion.

There’s one thing Davis wrote that’s unquestionably true, “What happens in Virginia doesn’t stay in Virginia.” If we allow ourselves to be duped by this slight of hand, it is going to have far-reaching effects.

I’m afraid VA is a lost cause for conservatives; the liberals in Greater DC just overwhelm the state. People in Roanoke and Lynchburg never know what hit them.

He needs to perform one, or at least witness one.

Then he might sense how he and all his fellow democrats and their voters are viewed by sensible people.

Ugh these people are going to come out so badly in history. Worse than Hitler. 55 million babies they’ve killed. Late term or not, this will end. No one knows when, but it is against natural law and it will end.

And after it does, these people will be seen as monsters.

I have heard McAuliffe on Laura Ingraham’s show, and she referred to seeing McAuliffe at Mass.

Where does Laura Ingraham go to church? The pastor needs to be informed that Canon 915 prohibits giving Communion to obstinate public sinners like McAuliffe.

The libertarians are also partial birth abortion.

This is how they word zero interference, zero limits.

“”1.4 Abortion
Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.””

Well, they are wrong. The fetus is a person who, in this silly ruling, gets a say, but is ignored.

If the fetus is not a person then they can provide the proof that it isn’t, but they cannot.

There is actually plenty of proof that states that it is a person.

All of these people, regardless, are going to have to face final judgment, whether they believe in that or not. That’s where they’re going to find out the fetus is a person.

I think that’s a bad time to realize what one has known, by natural law, and common sense, all along.

Very bad time.

I am appalled that this carpetbagging scum hack is polling anywhere north of Carlos Danger.
