When Ralph Northam was running to become governor of Virginia in 2017, Planned Parenthood was behind him every step of the way.

“It’s really clear that Virginians want and need a fierce champion like Dr. Northam to stand up for them and to stand up for women’s health,” Jennifer Allen, chief executive of Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, said as she announced that abortion supporters would spend up to $3 million to elect Northam, The Washington Post reported at the time.

Planned Parenthood also praised Northam for taking “bold actions” to support abortion.

In the end, Planned Parenthood invested $1.99 million into Northam’s campaign, according to The Virginia Public Access Project.

During the campaign, David Abrams, a spokesman for Republican Ed Gillespie referred to Northam as having “extreme positions supporting abortions in the eighth or ninth month.”

This week, Northam’s support for abortion has again become a leading political issue after the governor issued a statement that appeared to endorse infanticide. Northam was speaking on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor,” after a Democrat in the Virginia House of Delegates introduced a bill that would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth.

“So in this particular example if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. 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 the mother,” Northam told WTOP.

The response was blistering.

“This is morally repugnant,” said Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said in a statement to National Review. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”

Others responded on Twitter.

Northam insisted he had said nothing wrong.

“I have devoted my life to caring for children and any insinuation otherwise is shameful and disgusting,” he tweeted.

    Sounds like somebody is owned by Planned Parenthood. Call it what it is..bribery..and should be an ethic’s violation, as well as, a crime. Politicians should not be immune from consequences of a “monetary” bought run for office and influence in a political position. Corrupt Democrat to say the very least.

    No WONDER he recommends leaving newborns to suffer & slowly die while being left to the elements: He’s a baby murderer who has sold his soul to satan.

    Planned Parenthood is not about “women’s health”. They are about killing babies. My mom was 7 mo pregnant when she fell and that led to my birth. They are killing babies who are born live and using our tax dollars to do it.

    How can a non-profit organization like Plan Parenthood legally donate money to a candidates campaign? It’s not a legal move nor is it ethical.
