Radical Abortion Measures in New York and Virginia Point to Depravity of Society and the Need for Pro-Life Americans to Stand for the Unborn

Timothy Plan Founder Art Ally—Abortion Will Not Be Funded by the Faithful

ORLANDO, Fla.—Those who are committed to defending life in America have been saddened, discouraged and, rightfully, deeply disturbed about two recent moves by states to allow women to abort their unborn babies right up until birth.

Last week, New York lawmakers passed shocking legislation that allows abortion up until birth. Now, Virginia is proposing a similar law that goes even further.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat elected in 2017, said a baby born with health complications could live or die based on what the mother and doctors decided. “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered,” Northam explained. “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.”

Timothy Plan communications adviser and author Robert Knight has written about how Northam is topping New York and backing outright infanticide.

“Virginia’s governor has come out in favor of allowing newborn babies to die if the mother and doctors want it that way,” Knight wrote. “Northam, who himself is a pediatrician neurologist, shocked many on Wednesday morning when he endorsed infanticide during a radio interview on a Washington-area station. He made the comments in reference to a late-term abortion bill filed in Virginia that would go even further than the New York State law signed on Jan. 22 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that legalizes abortion right up to the baby’s due date.”

Knight also noted that the Repeal Act (HR 2491), sponsored by Delegate Kathy Tran, a Northern Virginia Democrat, would do away with nearly all the state’s abortion restrictions. Women going into labor at 40 weeks would still be eligible for abortions. On Tuesday, a House subcommittee voted 5-3 to table the Repeal Act, with all Republicans voting to table it and all Democrats voting against tabling it.

Continued Knight, “This smacks of the same callous disregard for human life exhibited by legislators who have opposed Born Alive Infant Protection Act laws that would require doctors to care for babies born after botched abortions. What New York State enacted and what Virginia’s governor and Democrat legislators have proposed is nothing less than barbaric.

“Among other things,” Knight added, “the bill would reduce the number of doctors required to certify late-term abortions in Virginia from three to just one. Gov. Northam said he actually opposes that change. The words ‘substantially and irremediably’ would be deleted when referring to the alleged health threat to the woman posed by continuing a pregnancy. That means any health reason whatever, including the woman’s emotional state, could be used to justify the abortion.”

In part, it was Timothy Plan founder Art Ally’s pro-life commitment that led him in 1992 to start helping churches provide biblically sound retirement resources for pastors. Today, Ally’s commitment has expanded beyond the pulpit to help Americans make God-honoring investments that support life—at all stages.

“Infanticide is the ultimate evil,” Ally said. “Nothing is more horrific than the death of an innocent unborn child who is voiceless, helpless and whose plan from the Lord is birth and life. We will be held accountable if we don’t help stop the killing of our most precious ones.

“With the rise in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), Timothy Plan can make it possible for people to no longer have to choose between funding companies that support abortion,” Ally continued. “BRI affords the freedom to invest not only wisely but morally, including matters of the protection of sacred life. Investors who know they are pleasing God with their finances can sleep well at night for honoring His will and sticking to His plan.”

For 25 years, Timothy Plan has helped people achieve their financial goals while investing in a morally responsible manner. Timothy Plan, for example, does not invest in those companies that support abortion or have other agendas contrary to the teachings of Scripture—or that are actively participating in activities that may prove destructive to our communities-at-large.

Mutual funds are available through a prospectus (Timothy Plan Prospectus) by contacting the fund or a financial professional. When considering a mutual fund, investors should always carefully read the prospectus before inventing to analyze the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
