Really? Planned Parenthood Claims Abortion 'Essential and Life-Affirming' During Coronavirus


In Texas, Mississippi, and Ohio health departments are rightly calling abortion procedures non-essential and ordering clinics to close. Some abortion clinics are now challenging the orders through lawsuits, trying to claim abortion is "essential."

Planned Parenthood’s Meera Shah told Buzzfeed:

“Pregnancy-related care, especially abortion care, is essential and life-affirming (I’m not sure she knows what that means...) especially now when there is so much insecurity around jobs and food and paychecks and childcare.” 

Well there it is. People may end up being poor, thus, we must kill them. 

Meanwhile, According to The Atlantic, “All over the country, patients are finding their nonemergency surgical appointments canceled as hospitals prepare for a spike in coronavirus cases. Surgeries for early-stage cancer, joint replacements, epilepsy, and cataracts are all getting pushed back – to ration much-needed personal protective equipment, keep hospital beds open, and to shield patients from the virus.”

Who would have thought in the days of the Coronavirus, you wouldn’t be able to see your doctor if you have cancer, but you could have an abortion.
