Shortly after the scandalous photos from Governor Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook — which he now denies
are of him — surfaced and created a media firestorm, Hillary Clinton joined the first Democratic presidential hopefuls to call for his resignation. Given her role in the recent passage of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s radical Reproductive Health Act, this was likely a more calculated move than most realize.
Decent Americans from across the nation were rightly horrified when New York passed Governor Cuomo’s partial-birth abortion and infanticide law on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and celebrated by lighting up the World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower — our monument to self-sacrificing heroes and murdered innocents — pink.
On January 7, Hillary Clinton joined Gov. Cuomo and Planned Parenthood at a pre-celebration rally for the law at New York’s Barnard College. Her participation is significant. Clinton’s support for legalizing partial-birth abortion was the very issue that candidate Donald Trump highlighted against her in the 2016 campaign — which helped secure his support with prolife voters. As political pundits continue to play the guessing game about Clinton’s 2020 presidential aspirations, her presence at Cuomo’s event might be a sign that she does not want her radical abortion stance to matter in this next presidential election.
The game changer was the video that went viral on January 30: Governor Northam speaking on radio, explicitly stating that VA’s proposed partial-birth abortion bill, which mirrors New York law, would legalize abortionists to kill a baby after the infant is born alive. The visceral outcry to his shocking words had the potential to spiral out of control and ricochet back to Cuomo. Democrats got a taste of what was in store when Nancy Pelosi, at a Capitol Hill press conference the next day, was asked for her reaction. No surprise, she quickly dismissed the question with “I’m sorry I just don’t know what he said yesterday.” Nobody bought that.
The release of the photos, which came on February 1 , around 24 hours after Northam’s infanticide comments, conveniently provided the Democratic Party a needed distraction.
Aside from protecting Cuomo, these leaked photos also saved Clinton. Since Cuomo hasn’t been forced to backpedal on New York’s law, Hillary has also been protected from having to distance herself from her role and support in getting Cuomo’s partial birth abortion law passed.
When Clinton endorsed Cuomo’s law prior to passage, she seemed to be counting on the general American public being over their shock from revelations years ago that the partial birth abortion procedure involves puncturing an unborn baby’s head and sucking out his or her brain. But now Northam introduced a whole new shock factor into the equation by exposing the details of a law allowing the execution of a newborn.
Clinton, who campaigned for Northam in his race against Ed Gillespie, took a stand against Northam for his racism; yet, here’s the catch: Clinton has refused to distance herself from the racist agenda of Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger. Sanger is on record advocating for forced sterilization and eugenics and wrote in her own autobiography about speaking to a women’s group affiliated with the KKK.
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America gave the Margaret Sanger Award to Hillary Clinton for her “contributions to the advancement of women’s health care.” During her acceptance speech, Clinton said: "It was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage, her tenacity, her vision…"
Hillary Clinton and the Democrats don’t want the truth that America is legalizing infanticide to stay in the news. Otherwise it might break through the dulled consciences of voters who consider themselves “moderate,” “balanced,” or “centrist” — yet vote for candidates who support an abortion agenda so radical that babies up to the moment of birth or even after can be killed simply at the whim of their mother. For the sake of our nation, the truth must prevail, and despite Democrat and media efforts to bury the story, more and more Americans must be confronted with the fact that standing for “pro-choice” means supporting infanticide.
