The Democratic Virginia delegate who has recently come under fire for sponsoring a bill in the Virginia House of Delegates that would allow the termination of a pregnancy up to 40 weeks old, is also the chief patron of a bill that would protect the lives of â€œfall cankerwormsâ€ during certain months.
Democratic Virginia Del. Kathy Tran introduced â€œHouse Bill No. 2495 â€“ Fall cankerworm; spraying prohibited during certain monthsâ€ on Jan. 9, the same day as â€œHouse Bill No. 2491 â€” Abortion; eliminate certain requirements.â€
Tran came under fire Tuesday for her support of legislation that would allow an abortion to be performed just moments before the birth of a child.
