Virginia Third Trimester Democrat Abortion Bill is Insane

Kathy Tran, a Virginia delegate and a Democrat put forth a bill seeking to loosen third-trimester abortion restrictions and it is causing controversy. A video of Tran discussing her Repeal Act bill – which she acknowledged would allow abortion right up to the moment of delivery – has gone viral.


“So the way the suggestion that we’ve made in the bill is to say it’s in the third-trimester with the certification of the physician,” Tran said.

Gilbert: “So how late in the third trimester would you be able to do that?”

Tran: “…Through the third trimester. The third trimester goes all the way up to 40 weeks.”

Gilbert: “To the end of the third trimester?”

Tran: “I don’t think we have a limit in the bill.”

Gilbert: “Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical signs that she is about to give a birth. Would that still be a point where she could request an abortion if she’s so certified… she’s dilating.”

Tran: “Mr. Chairman that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician, and the mother would make at that point.”

Gilbert: “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”

Tran: “… My bill would allow that, yes.”

Gilbert: “I could have said a week from her due date and that would be the same answer correct?”

Tran: “That it’s allowed in the bill, yes.”

Gilbert: “You substantially changed the standard by removing a couple words, correct?”

Tran: “Yes, I’m aware.”

Gilbert: “What type of mental health conditions would you anticipate would be utilized by physicians under these circumstances to determine that a child that is otherwise viable is worthy of an abortion?”

Tran: “You know, again I’m not a physician so I can’t make those calls as to when a physician would determine that a woman’s mental health where they would be able to certify an abortion at that point.”

Gilbert: “But the doctor, the physician, wouldn’t have to have any specialized training in mental health to make that determination under your bill, right?”

Tran: “Under this bill, no.”
