Pro-abortion Governor wannabe Terry McAuliffe celebrates visit to Virginia abortion clinic

By Dave Andrusko

Okay, this comes as no surprise to anyone who has followed the career of Terry McAuliffe the once (and he hopes again) governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Earlier today, he tweeted out that he was “Grateful for the opportunity to tour the Whole Woman’s Health facility in Charlottesville this afternoon with @SallyLHudson.” [Hudson is the pro-abortion state Delegate who represents that area of Virginia.]

McAuliffe was a pro-abortion stalwart when he was the 72nd governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018.  Under Virginia law, he couldn’t run immediately for back-to-back terms but he could after pausing for breath.

McAuliffe is running against pro-life Republican Glenn Youngkin, although judging by McAuliffe’s ads, he is determined to persuade voters he’s actually running against Donald Trump.

Here are a couple of thoughts.

#1. If we want to link similar to similar, McAuliffe described the abortion-until-birth proposal of Virginia Del. Kathy Tran as “common sense” law. As Nic Rowan reported, in January 2019 , Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R.) asked Del. Tran 

Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified?  She’s dilating.”

Tran said that was a decision the woman and her doctor must make privately. Gilbert then asked if the measure would allow for abortion right before birth.

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

On April 1, 2019, when McAuliffe was on The John Fredericks Show, Fredericks asked, “If you were governor, would you have vetoed that bill if it hit your desk?” After much to-ing and fro-ing, McAuliffe said, “I would not have vetoed the bill.”

To repeat, in the world McAuliffe  occupies, Del. Tran’s radically pro-abortion bill is “common sense.”

#2. The pictures McAuliffe tweeted out came from his appearance at the Whole Woman’s Health of Charlottesville, Virginia.  On their webpage, we read “One-day abortion care, including abortion pill (taken at home) up to 11 weeks since last menstrual period (LMP) and abortion procedure (in clinic) up to 16 weeks LMP”–and that they can “fast-track appointments for our patients with special circumstances.” 

In the photos everyone is wearing a mask. Must make sure everyone is safe….except unborn babies.

“I’ll always fight to protect women’s clinics as gov.,” McAuliffe vows.

I have no doubt that were he elected to a second term, he would again be, as he bragged during his first term, a “stonewall” against any and all pro-life legislation.
