Last week’s outrage over Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s statement that babies born alive following a botched abortion could be allowed to die quickly evaporated when a racist photograph from Northam’s medical school yearbook began circulating.

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.”

The sub-committee tabled Tran’s bill. But many fail to realize that Northam’s statement that “the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired” applies equally to Virginia’s current abortion law....
