This comes after a majority of Democrats on Capitol Hill would not discuss state legislature bills allowing late-term abortions Thursday, one day after Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam defended the “Repeal Act,” a proposed bill that would remove restrictions on abortion in Virginia. The governor made controversial comments about late-term abortion.
“If a mother is in labor … the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable,” Northam said. “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 mother.”
West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin told The Daily Caller News Foundation when asked about Northam’s comments:
“I haven’t seen anything. I’ve been in retreats. Obviously I just got out of a meeting.”
“I’m literally mid-sentence talking to staff about the vote I have to take right now. Happy to talk to you soon,” Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said to TheDCNF. “I’ve been in a caucus retreat for two days.”
Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy also said he did not hear the comments.
“I have no idea what he said. I have no idea what happened there. I do follow the governor of Vermont though, all the time,” Leahy told TheDCNF.
The comments received massive pushback from Republicans on Capitol Hill and across the country.
