Pro-Life Author on Late-Term Abortion Push: Judging Value of Life Is 'Dangerous Territory'
Pro-life author and speaker Daniel Ritchie said Monday that judging the value of a child's life because of irregularities he or she may have enters "dangerous territory."
His remarks come as Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) faces mounting calls to re'I'm Really Proud of It': Grocery Store Owner Stands By 'Heaven Has a Wall' Adsign, in part, due to comments he made on late-term abortion.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) recently signed a bill that legalizes abortion up until birth in his state, and a proposed bill in New Mexico would scrap language regarding criminal abortion from a state law.
Ritchie -- who was born without arms -- said on The Story that severe birth defects were justifiable reasons for late-term abortion in New York and Virginia.
"Doctors truly do not know what the long-term prospect is for a lot of these kids," he said. "I think that we start to step in dangerous territory when we start to think how valuable a child's life will be based on what they have or don't have."
Cuomo came under fire from conservatives and religious leaders following the signing of the Reproductive Health Act, as the governor had cited his Catholic faith days before signing the legislation.
Fox News reported that the proposal in New Mexico passed in the state's House, and that Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) will sign the bill if it passes in the state's senate.
