Oh my gosh! Really? Dem co-sponsor of late-term abortion bill apologizes, says she did not read the text

Another dem thinking every horrible thing they do is OK if they apologize.

 

A Democratic co-sponsor of a controversial Virginia bill that would repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions is apologizing to her constituents for supporting the legislation, saying she didn’t read the bill or know how far it went.

The backpedal comes as Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is defending himself amid fierce criticism that he suggested a child could be killed after birth in remarks a day earlier about the same legislation. And Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, the primary sponsor, released a video Thursday standing by the bill.

 

But in an email to her constituents on Wednesday, Del. Dawn Adams of Richmond said she didn’t fully understand the bill when she signed on to it as a co-sponsor.

VIRGINIA GOV. NORTHAM FACES BACKLASH FOR COMMENTS ON 3RD-TRIMESTER ABORTION BILL

“By now you have heard about the abortion bill, or seen the video,” Adams said in the email. “I vaguely remember signing on to this, and I did this in solidarity with my colleague and as a symbolic gesture for a woman’s right to choose.”

Adams said she didn’t know what was in the legislation before adding her name to it. “I did not read a bill I agreed to co-patron and that wasn’t smart or typical. I will work harder and be better for it.”

She added: “I am sorry that I did not exercise due diligence before this explosion of attention; had I done so, I would not have co-patroned.” Adams said she thought it only reversed “onerous” abortion regulations implemented by Republicans in 2012, and didn’t realize it “sought to do much more.”

The email was first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The bill – which was tabled in committee earlier this week – would remove a number of restrictions currently in place regarding late-term abortions, including doing away with the requirement that three physicians certify a third-trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman's death or impairment of her mental or physical health. The third trimester lasts until 40 weeks.

Tran sparked outrage from conservatives this week when she was asked at a hearing if a woman about to give birth and dilating could still request an abortion.

“My bill would allow that, yes,” she said.

Tran released a video on social media on Thursday saying she “was really surprised by the line of questioning that I got” in the hearing.

“I want to be very clear about what’s currently allowed in Virginia law,” Tran said. “Right now women are able to access an abortion in the later stages of pregnancy under certain conditions with the approval of medical doctors. I’ve done nothing to change that. What I have done is try to make sure that women are able to make these decisions and access these services in a timely manner.”

Democrats are the reason we can't have nice things.

This is another time and place where we have powerful men and women
making our own laws. 
 

This is not your mama's Little House on the Prairie.

I think we all can agree abortion shouldn't be used as a form of birth control.  I hope, we all can agree that most abortions aren't the result of a woman waiting into the last stages of pregnancy to she doesn't want the baby anymore.  If someone has the stats feel free to post them....

But this is what we should focus on to have honest debates about abortion:

“I want to be very clear about what’s currently allowed in Virginia law,” Tran said. “Right now women are able to access an abortion in the later stages of pregnancy under certain conditions with the approval of medical doctors. I’ve done nothing to change that. What I have done is try to make sure that women are able to make these decisions and access these services in a timely manner.

Should a woman who becomes pregnant as a result of rape, be forced to have that baby?

If there are pregnancy complications that put a woman's life in danger, should she be forced to continue the pregnancy?

Would single payer health care go along way to ensuring women had adequate health care to pregnancy complications?

All life is sacred, but leaving the decision up to a patient and a doctor doesn't sound like a snuff law or a death panel to me.
