OBGYN Group: OK to Cancel Elective Health Care, But We Must Keep Killing Babies in Abortions

March 20, 2020

With the Chinese coronavirus panic going on and all sorts of efforts being made to stop people from dying, the abortion lobby is worried about – what else – making sure they can keep killing preborn babies in a timely manner.

The pro-abortion American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists put out a joint statement with other organizations on March 18 that said they “do not support COVID-19 responses that cancel or delay abortion procedures.” They recommended, “Community-based and hospital-based clinicians should consider collaboration to ensure abortion access is not compromised during this time.” Yes, that’s what time and effort should be spend collaborating on; ensuring death.

(ACTION: Complain to ACOG by going here.)

There is a genuine disconnect between doctors trying to save the weak and vulnerable elderly that coronavirus seems to target most in one room while killing the weak and vulnerable in the womb that abortion targets in another.

The National Abortion Federation (NAF) predictably released a statement on March 17 calling on “leaders [to] treat outpatient abortion providers as essential businesses” and calling elective abortion “an essential health service.” Can you imagine? The whole world is saying to shut down everything and they want to be sure the abortion factories run at full throttle. NAF said:

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.

Saying that abortion is on “the continuum of pregnancy care” is positively orwellian. Then there’s the monstrous logic that calls pregnant woman an “immediate burden” on the “health system,” so let’s kill all the unborn to prevent a health care shortage.

Of course, the media is getting in on the act, too. HuffPost worried on March 17 “Abortion Access Is Under Threat As Coronavirus Spreads.” Never letting a good crisis go to waste, HuffPost allowed an abortionist to rail against pro-life abortion clinic regulations as unsafe during a pandemic:

Ghazaleh Moayedi, an abortion provider and board member with Physicians for Reproductive Health, noted that TRAP laws, which stands for “targeted regulation of abortion providers,” are actually making patients less safe during the coronavirus outbreak.

In Texas, patients are forced to make multiple trips to the clinic for unnecessary counseling and ultrasounds, she said. Every visit creates another opportunity for the virus to spread.

This was a common theme. In a Q&A on coronavirus and reproductive health, a fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Health told pro-abortion outlet Rewire News that abortion regulations put women “at risk for COVID-19”:

No one should have to risk their health or the health of their families by traveling on public transportation, wait in waiting rooms, or listen to a state-mandated scripts to obtain an abortion pill. Hostile states where people are punished for having an unplanned pregnancy now also put them at risk for COVID-19 given the extra travel and extra office visits. In the end, this endangers their families and communities, too, as it promotes spread of the virus.

A Canadian article on the impact of the coronavirus on daily life featured quotes from abortionists defending the abhorrent practice that is elective 98.3 percent of the time as “essential.”

“We do not see abortion services as elective,” said the executive director of a Toronto abortion clinic. “They are an essential service, and our goal is to maintain operations while maintaining staff and client safety as much as possible.” That clinic made the “heartbreaking decision” to no longer allow patients in to bring a support person.

The president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation, who goes by the Very Reverend Katherine Ragsdale, said, “Yes, it’s not bleeding out on the floor, you’re not having a stroke, you’re not having a heart attack. You can schedule your treatment, but it’s not elective in that it can’t be put off indefinitely without serious health and life consequences.” Yes, there are literally life consequences, as in, a life will be saved if abortion is put off indefinitely. Sounds like the healthiest outcome to me.

At a time when there’s death and destruction all around us, let’s do everything we can to save lives instead of take them.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
