|As a reminder, the Democrat who sponsored the shameful legislation, Simon’s colleague Kathy Tran, said that HB 2491 “would allow abortions at any point in pregnancy up until the point of childbirth in certain cases.” Shortly thereafter, disgraced Governor Ralph Northam shed further light on what Simon’s bill sought to legalize:
“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.”
And so, although McGrath admits that she is “further left” and “more progressive than anybody in the state of Kentucky,” she fits right in with her pro-abortion pals in DC.

In An Interview With Bloomberg, McGrath Said, “‘I’m One-Hundred Percent Pro-Choice. I Align With Everything Emily’s List Aligns With.'” “McGrath is mounting her first campaign systematically, pragmatically, balancing fundraising against other concerns. She has kept her distance from Emily’s List, the financial engine that powers the campaigns of many Democratic pro-choice women. I thought that might suggest unorthodox Democratic views on abortion; I was wrong. ‘I’m one-hundred percent pro-choice. I align with everything Emily’s List aligns with,’ she told me. Then why isn’t she raking in the pro-choice dough? ‘I don’t want to be tied to a litmus test,’ McGrath said. ‘I don’t want to be tied to any national interest like that, where people can say, you’re just a puppet.'” (Francis Wilkinson, “Amy McGrath Has a Bracing Message for America,” Bloomberg, 10/31/17)
