While everyone has placed coronavirus as a top priority, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) continues on its mission to keep abortion at the forefront.
I’m already ill at the fact that NAF is using the pandemic to bring attention to abortion.
Join us in praying for the restoration of pro-life values in our nation and in the hearts of people. Click below to get your free copy:
NAF sent out an email about how it is pressuring the medical community to not forget those who need abortions (emphasis mine):
As states and municipalities enact measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, more non-essential businesses will be instructed—or required—to close. At the same time, hospitals are preparing for a surge in COVID-19 cases and increased strain on their staff, resources, and systems, and will likely begin indefinitely postponing non-essential or elective procedures. During this public health crisis, pregnancy care, including abortion care, remains an essential health service. The National Abortion Federation (NAF) calls on leaders to ensure that outpatient abortion clinics can remain open and urges hospitals to continue to provide abortion care.
Are you kidding me? NAF admits the strain coronavirus will cause on the medical community but wants them to keep care going for abortions.
I find it precious that NAF included “pregnancy care.” First off, you’re an abortion group so yeah, I see right through you.
Second, pregnant women are in the high-risk group. The medical community will devote attention to pregnant women due to this fact.
But yes, the medical community will more than likely turn down elective procedures. If your abortion is an elective procedure then why should you receive special consideration over someone else? NAF tries to explain (emphasis mine):
Abortion care is a time-sensitive service that cannot be significantly deferred without profound consequences for women and their families. Abortion is provided for almost one in five pregnancies in the United States, as part of the continuum of pregnancy care. It is an essential health service. An individual and family decide to end a pregnancy for a complex constellation of reasons that include the impact of pregnancy and birth on their health, ability to work, and strained economic circumstances. These are conditions that do not go away—and are likely heightened—in pandemic conditions. Denying or deferring abortion care places an immediate burden on patients, their families, and the health system, and can have profound and lasting consequences. Patients presenting for time-sensitive care, including abortion care, need timely access to treatment, even during this pandemic.
DO NOT EVER say that abortion is part of pregnancy care. Abortion is infanticide. It makes me sick that these people consider it “care” when the end result of abortion is a dead human being.
I hate to inform you, but choosing to end your baby’s life is not an essential health service unless it fits into the criteria set in place by the state. While I am adamantly pro-life I try not to attack women suffering from rape. The mother’s health must be on the brink of catastrophe to make abortion an essential health service, too.
Stop using this pandemic as a way to steer people towards infanticide.
