DR. JOE A. MANN, PhD
148 THE GREEN
WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA, 23185
To: Dr. Ralph E. Northam, Governor
Commonwealth of Virginia
From: Dr. J. A. Mann, PhD
Subject: Your Resignation as VA Governor Requested
Dear Governor Northam:
Please consider this a formal request for you to resign immediately your position as Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Your support for House of Delegates bill HB-2491, so-called 3rd trimester “abortion,” is unacceptable. The proposed procedure is, in fact, the taking of human life. It's murder, which is codified and adjudicated as a capital crime. Anyone capable of analytical thought, with intellectual integrity, respect for human life, decency, and morals should consider the proposed procedure taking of life. Your own words give credence to that reality. Your assertion that a baby who survived the efforts to take its life would be “made comfortable and resuscitated,” apparently meant to be done if the decision to terminate the life is rescinded, defies credibility of defining this as abortion. It is undeniably infanticide. None of the talking points, such as the right of a woman to do as she wants with her body and for women's health make this procedure anything different. It is, in reality, an inhuman departure from honor, morals, decency and more, giving in to radical political excess.
We never would have expected a physician, a pediatrician yet, who must have spent his life helping children, presumably even saving lives, would stray so for from such pursuit to the inhuman, immoral and unacceptable advocacy of taking of human life-- infanticide, murder. Recognize it for what it is and do the honorable thing. Resign, the only way to regain the dignity we believe you must have had, before yielding to such unacceptable radical political excess.
Additionally, if Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, has the same position on HB-2491 as you, we ask him to resign as well.
Respectfully and sincerely submitted,
Joe A. Mann, PhD
Williamsburg, James City County, VA
