There are two lives in every pregnancy

Credit Gov. Northam for pulling back the veil of decades-long deceit and revealing for Virginians and all Americans that the “progressive” left worships at the altar of abortion and even infanticide.

There are two distinct lives in every pregnancy: the mother’s and the baby’s. Men and women have many choices they can make before conception. But their baby has no choice — and no voice — and therefore ought to receive at least equal if not the preponderance of legal protection.

Babies are the epitome of helpless innocence. If we as a civilized society fail to summon the moral courage to stand for our fellow human beings’ rights and protect children in the womb, then our collective salvation is surely damned.
