Video of Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran defending her controversial bill that would allow abortion even up to birth in the state of Virginia caused outrage this week.

The text of Tran’s bill further states, “No locality, including a service district created pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 24 (§ 15.2-2400 et seq.), shall spray any pesticide intended to suppress an infestation of the fall cankerworm during the period beginning March 1 and ending August 1.”
