Republican House Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has condemned Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s description of how a post-birth abortion would take place under his abortion bill, calling Northam’s comments “barbaric.”

On Thursday, Rep. McCarthy tweeted that he couldn’t even imagine the kind of “twisted mindset” that would rationalize Northam’s vision for abortion in his state:

“Ralph Northam’s comments were barbaric. I cannot begin to fathom the twisted mindset that rationalizes the killing of the innocent — born or unborn. #ProLife

On Wednesday, Gov. Northam said that, under a bill he supports, a baby born alive could be “kept comfortable” and then “resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired” – the implication being that the baby could be left to die if the family decided they did not want to keep their child.
