Well, He is a Virginia Democrat


The Washington Free Beacon reports that Senator Tim Kaine has hinted that he may oppose a bill that would require proper medical care for a baby that survived an abortion. When asked by a constituent if he supported the pending Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, Kaine, who has claimed personal pro-life beliefs rooted in his Catholic faith, dodged the question while acknowledging that the bill would only apply to abortion survivors.

“This bill would establish new requirements for health care practitioners in the case of a fetus who survives an abortion,” he replied in a Feb. 12 letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. “I support the right of women to make their own health and reproductive decisions. For that reason, I oppose efforts to weaken the basic holding of Roe v. Wade.”

The Senate will hold a roll-call vote on the bill in an effort to force pro-choice politicians to take a stand on the radical abortion positions taken by states such as New York. Denying care to survivors is far beyond the beliefs of most voters who see denying care to a live child as a form of infanticide.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on Monday.

  1. “The basic holding of Roe vs Wade” …. Obviously never read the case. While Roe is no longer good law in most of its holdings, Roe acknowledged the interests of the state in preserving life in the third trimester.
