We know the Coronavirus is about to get worse. By Monday, 3000 had died in the U.S. By end of Tuesday, 4000. One state over, Illinois officials released an emergency alert to residents pleading for additional licensed healthcare workers to come forward as they prepare for the pending deluge of death. Federal officials fear fatalities could reach nearly a quarter of a million Americans. That’s why the nation is on a Coronavirus lockdown.
Officials hope such draconian measures will slow the rate of infection so hospitals aren’t overwhelmed and critical medical supplies depleted.
New York City is the epicenter
In New York City, the epicenter of infections at the moment, Mayor Bill De Blasio is so insistent on a Coronavirus lockdown for the sake of public safety, that he even threatens to permanently shutter any churches that congregate to worship God. Said the mayor:
“The NYPD, fire department, buildings department — everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on, they will go to the officials of that congregation, they’ll inform them they need to stop the services and disperse. If that does not happen, they will take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.”
Yet inexplicably, he allows abortion clinics to remain open, having once characterized human abortion as a “sacred choice.”
No threat of permanent lockdowns.
Do they really need the money at the expense of public safety?
Does Planned Parenthood really need money that badly at the expense of siphoning off critical medical supplies during a pandemic? After all, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York enjoyed $98 Million in income in their recent Federal Form 990 filings. Here in Iowa, Planned Parenthood North Central States reported $68 Million.
Something is wrong with this picture.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds suspended elective medical procedures and surgeries, such as dental, eye, and abortion, in an effort to preserve precious health care resources during the upcoming critical weeks.
Big Abortion balked. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit on behalf of their clinics to block the governor’s action.
At a time when medical supplies are in such critical demand, when so many human lives are at stake, couldn’t these abortion clinics suspend operations for even a few weeks? Isn’t $68 Million enough?
