When New York City passed third-trimester abortion-on-demand, Democrats cheered.
Democrats in Virginia thought they could pull a fast one and pass a similar bill that the sitting Governor defended while justifying infanticide.
But the woman responsible for the bill just got the worst news of her life.
Virginia Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran went viral when a video showed her defending legislation she introduced that would allow abortion up until the moment of birth.
Even self-described “pro-choice” people on social media couldn’t stomach the thought.
But the Democratic Party rushed to her side and now they’re suffering the consequences.
Tran canceled a scheduled town hall meeting in her district because she was too afraid of facing the voters.
Masking her tail-between-her-legs defeat as a security issue, Tran said in an announcement, “we are very disappointed to have to make this decision.”
She’s trying to pin the blame on angry pro-lifers after she sparked protests in her district over the weekend.
Nearly 1,000 pro-lifers showed up on Saturday to where the town hall was supposed to be held.
The Susan B. Anthony List called her out, saying:
We are disappointed Delegate Tran and her colleagues chose to call off their town hall rather than face pro-life constituents, who were looking forward to the opportunity to voice their alarm over Delegate Tran’s radical abortion bill in person.
Then they said the one statement that shut her down:
Now she needs to listen to the voters.
Virginia holds odd-year elections for state offices, so Tran is up for election this November.
And already a bevy of Republican challengers are lining up to send her packing.
Tran was elected in 2017 after Republican Dave Albo, who occupied the seat for 24 years, retired.
Tran is a sitting duck because polls show voters are rejecting her abortion extremism.
Breitbart News reports:
Despite the postponement of the townhall, Students for Life of America (SFLA) plans to have Tina Whittington, SFLA vice president, as a speaker at the press conference and rally.
Whittington, a Virginia resident, said in a statement: “Millennials understand the violent reality of abortion and see past the attempt by pro-choice groups to disguise legalized infanticide as ‘choice.’ We will continue to speak out against this great injustice.”
“With leaders in New York and Virginia pushing America’s abortion extremism to infanticide, the need to defend women and preborn infants from these inhumane practices is energizing voters nationwide,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLA president. “To get ready for the day after Roe, SFLA is launching a new c4 organization, Students for Life Action, getting this Pro-Life Generation activated for the ground game of defending life.”
A recent poll, conducted by pollster the polling company, inc./WomanTrend for SFLA’s Institute for Pro-Life Advancement, found 70 percent of millennials support restrictions on abortion.
A recent Marist poll also found 75 percent of Americans want substantial restrictions on abortion, including 60 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of those who identify as “pro-choice.”
