Ralph Northam Used Talking Points From Planned Parenthood When He Defended Infanticide
From Life News:
“Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam took talking points directly from the Planned Parenthood abortion chain in January around the time when he made his infamous comments defending infanticide, new government documents revealed this week.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request showed that the Democrat governor and his staff worked very closely with the billion-dollar abortion chain. One of Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s senior staff members even used a Planned Parenthood email address, according to the government records.
“These new emails show that Planned Parenthood was running the press operations of the Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam after he endorsed infanticide during a radio interview,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is incredible that a Northam staffer was actually using a Planned Parenthood email address to launder abortion talking points to other government officials and the media.”
The pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List described the relationship as “corrupt and barbaric.”
According to the report:
The February 1, 2019, FOIA documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that on January 30, 2019, Alexsis Rodgers, a policy director in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, used a ppav.org [Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia] email account.
Northam told WTOP radio: “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 desires. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” Several hours after Northam gave the viral interview on WTOP, Rodgers sent talking points from her ppav.org email account titled “Topline messages for Northam” to PPAV representative Missy Wesolowski, who then forwarded them to the Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Services, Gena Berger.”
