Virginia Democrats have taken their advocacy for abortion to the extreme. In 2019, a Democrat delegate introduced legislation to permit abortions up to and including the moment of birth, while then-Governor Northam infamously justified denying care to a newborn infant. In 2022, General Assembly Democrats reaffirmed their extreme position by defeating legislation that would have required life-sustaining care for infants born alive. Virginia should not have abortion laws emulating China and North Korea.
Paul Milde supports Governor Youngkin’s proposal to permit abortions during the first 15 weeks of pregnancy, allowing exceptions later in the pregnancy in cases of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother is endangered. And because Paul Milde is pro-life, he supports the “Born Alive Infant Act,” which would require life-sustaining care for infants born alive.
