The New York Times Ignores Ralph Northam's Infanticide Comments

The headline in The New York Times this week read: “Republicans’ Messaging on Abortion Puts Democrats on the Defensive.”

The story claimed that President Trump made “false statements that Democrats would ‘execute’ newborn babies.”

It seems the Times forgot the words of Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam. It was Northam, appearing on a radio show, who said this about aborting babies when the mother is in labor:

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “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.”

In case you weren't paying attention, New York Times, that's infanticide. 

But not a word of this in the story. Which is hard to believe since this is straight from the "real reporters."
