Infanticide in America: What a Difference a Year Makes

By Catharine Trauernicht

What a difference a year makes. Delegate Kathy Tran was elected to the House of Delegates in November 2017 and assumed office the following January. One year ago.

Do you know that she is sponsoring a bill in the VA legislature which, effectively, would bring New York State’s new abortion law to the Commonwealth, allowing abortions up until the moment of birth? Read a summary of HB 2491 here.

Ms. Tran’s parents fled Vietnam on a boat when she was only 7 months old. With her election, she became VA’s first Vietnamese-American elected official.

In this article written shortly after her 2017 election, Ms. Tran gushes about liberty and opportunity for all, even naming her newborn daughter after Ellis Island and the Liberty Bell. She has four children.

Speaking at an event at Duke University last October, Ms. Tran talked about knocking on doors and listening to voters, saying their stories “made it clear that the values I had — the values my parents had — are the true foundation of this country.”

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, anyone?

Coming on the heels of New York State’s new law allowing abortion throughout a pregnancy, and considering the horrified responses to that law, Ms. Tran should be feeling the heat herself. National Review posted a partial transcript and video of Ms. Tran defending her bill under questioning. Her cold, emotionless delivery is unsettling. Listen to how she wants VA abortion law changed.

This woman needs an opponent.
