Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) said that he didn’t have any regrets about the controversial comments he made regarding a new abortion bill that would lift the ban on third-trimester abortions when asked about them at a press conference on Thursday.

During an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP on Wednesday, Northam was asked about where he stood on allowing abortions, even when a woman is dilating and minutes or hours away from giving birth.

“If a mother is in labor – I can tell you exactly what would happen – 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 mother,” Northam responded.

Critics quickly pounced on Northam’s answer, which sounded like he was talking about killing infants after they are born.

A reporter asked Northam on Thursday during a press conference whether he regretted what he said or the way he said it.

“No, I don’t,” Northam responded. “I’m a physician. I’m also the governor. But when I’m asked questions, a lot of times, it is put in the context of being a physician, again, realizing how we approach, how we manage patients, how we offer advice and counseling.”

“So, no I don’t have any regrets,” Northam said.

Northam told the reporter that he found the personal insults directed at him to be disgusting.
