According to federal law, an infant born in the United States is considered a citizen. There is no waiting period while some official decides to grant or not to grant citizenship. At the moment of birth the infant child is a citizen of the USA and therefore entitled to all the privileges and protections of the Constitution. To kill that infant at birth either by refusing neonatal care or deprivation of life sustaining nourishment is most accurately described as infanticide, which is what Gov. Northam has suggested in his public statement regarding abortion at birth. And this astonishing lack of human compassion from a pediatrician and the leader of the VA Democratic party! In the name of all that is good, sane, just, and legal, Gov. Northam should resign!
