Pandemic Reveals Soul-Searching Past Due on Abortion

Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to claim lives globally, bringing normal life to a standstill. In the midst of this pandemic, which brings out both the best and the worst in people, we have on display yet more evidence of the corruption marking the business of abortion in our nation.

This largely unregulated industry is run by those who, despite any attempt to deny it, are committed to abortion above anything else. They think it's a fundamental right transcending all others (though the courts do not see it that way).

The abortion industry is more concerned with taking the lives of children in the womb than preserving the lives of the rest of us.

Meet abortion practitioner Jen Villavincencio, for instance.

She performs abortions at an outpatient clinic affiliated with a Michigan hospital, and she does abortions at other facilities in the state. But she's  so worried about carrying the virus home to her husband that they sleep in separate rooms.

"I’m scared. I’m scared of hurting my family. I’m scared of hurting my husband. I’m scared of hurting other people," she said in an interview with an abortion rights magazine.

What about carrying the virus from the abortion centers to the hospital?

What about the pregnant women she sees who have not come to her for an abortion?

They take second place, behind what she sees as her "moral" duty — terminating the life of the unborn.

Meanwhile, in Alabama, abortion practitioner Yashica Robinson has stopped doing hysterectomies, but continues her abortion practice.

In Pennsylvania, many Planned Parenthoods are doing only abortions — which puts the lie to their claim that abortion is just one of many services offered at the nation’s number one abortion seller.

In Missouri,  abortion practitioner Amy Addante Tweeted about her conflicts over postponing medical procedures for patients with painful conditions.

"Luckily, abortion care is not impacted," she noted.

Lucky for whom? Not the unborn. Not the moms, whom abortion devastates and who are potentially exposed to this deadly virus while accessing "abortion care." 

Abortions are continuing despite the efforts of governors in many states to safeguard their citizens. Abortion is clearly a non-essential healthcare procedure — that’s why the vast majority of abortions taking place in the United States are classified as "elective," and why its proponents place it under the banner of freedom of choice.

But those governors who are insisting simply that abortion clinics follow the same directives as other medical facilities and stop performing non-essential procedures are seeing their orders invalidated in federal court.

In Texas, for instance, a federal judge blocked Gov. Greg Abbott’s order to halt abortions during the viral outbreak. Planned Parenthood, predictably, went to court. There, a federal judge blocked Abbott’s order. Then an appeals court reinstated the order, sending Planned Parenthood back to court. As it stands right now (it changes daily) only chemical abortion is permitted in the Lone Star State.

Chemical abortion is risky also.

Though Planned Parenthood is working to illegally expand telemed abortions through all 50 states, women still have to show up at abortion centers — which may not be known for their attention to hygiene — to take the first pill, receiving the second to take the next day, at home. And, the complication rate is four times higher than with surgical abortion, necessitating further contact with healthcare workers.

Even in states where abortion has been shut down, some providers in Maryland, Louisiana and Ohio have continued the practice in violation of the law.

Abortion practitioners are breaking the law and exposing themselves and their patients and staffs to a deadly virus. All other medical practitioners are cooperating with the states’ directives. But we see a common pattern here, called the "abortion distortion."

All the rules that apply everywhere else get bent and broken when it comes to this one area of activity.

And this is how we can expect this industry to act once the unborn are again protected by law.

When one area of society’s activity is so abnormal and dysfunctional, it’s a pretty good sign that something is seriously wrong and remains unresolved in regard to that activity.

Perhaps we can hope that one of the lessons our nation brings out of this pandemic is that we have some serious soul-searching yet to do about abortion.
