Va. Gov. Northam draws outrage from GOP for defending abortion bill

WASHINGTON — President Trump and other prominent Republicans are attacking Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam for comments he made on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” program Wednesday.

Northam — a pediatric neurologist — was discussing a bill that would loosen restrictions on third-trimester abortions. The bill was tabled in the Virginia House of Delegates this week.

The controversy actually started on Tuesday when a video of Fairfax County Delegate Kathy Tran, the bill’s sponsor, circulated online. In the video, Tran acknowledges that her bill would allow women to seek abortions at any point in her pregnancy– including late into their third trimester– if their physical or mental health were at risk.

The policy of permitting final trimester abortions when the mother’s life and/or physical or mental safety is at risk is already legal in Virginia.
