On Jan. 28, in Richmond, Delegate Gilbert unmasked the Democrats’ goal of unfettered and unlimited abortions when questioning the sponsor of proposed legislation to expand the legal limits of abortion. As if to underscore that testimony, Gov. Ralph Northam the next day verified that his goal was to allow abortions up to and even after birth.

The Democrats were chagrined at being “outed,” so they shifted tactics quickly. Suddenly the focus was diverted to the Equal Rights Amendment, which would invite expanded abortion procedures under its nebulous framework. No matter that the time to ratify the ERA has expired. No matter that the ERA provides no more rights than are already accorded. It provides the necessary cover for the Democrats to continue their incessant undercover war against late term fetuses and unwanted newborns.
