Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to acknowledge Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments on late-term abortion, claiming she does not know what he said Thursday.
“I just don’t know what he said yesterday,” Pelosi said in response to a reporter’s question about Northam’s comments.
This comes as Northam defended the “Repeal Act,” a proposed bill that would remove all restrictions on abortion in the Commonwealth of Virginia, saying controversial comments about late-term abortion.
“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable,” Northam said. “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 mother.”
