The Wrong Debate

There are cries for Governor Northham to step down because of the photograph in his yearbook of a Ku Klux Klan – see post from two days ago.

But this has overshadowed a larger issue – the one of infanticide.  He tried to help out Delegate Tran who would have permitted abortion while a woman was in labor.  Governor Northam, who is also a pediatrician doctor, stated “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen.  The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable.  The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” 

In other words, the child would be born, and then the parents would decide if they wanted to keep the child or not.  That is infanticide, something Dr. Hippocrates would never have consented with.

Interestingly, the coverage of infanticide was one time on the 2nd page of the newspaper.  The coverage of the evil of racism was front page news for several days on end.

Lord, drive the evil of infanticide from our land.
