New reports show embattled Virginia Governor Ralph Northam received nearly $2 millions in donations from Planned Parenthood during his campaign.

That means the country’s largest abortion provider was Northam’s third largest contributor in 2017.

Earlier this week Northam sparked controversy over his defense of a late-term abortion bill, by suggesting a newborn baby could be left to die after birth.

When asked to clarify his comments on Thursday, the governor only doubled down on his stance and said he did not regret making those remarks.

He is now facing pressure from planned parenthood to resign over a separate incident involving a racially charged photo in which he claims was not him.
