(Liberty Bell) – As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, states all across the US are ordering medical offices to suspend all “non-essential and elective surgeries.” Ohio being one such state but abortion clinics are refusing to comply with the state’s Attorney General’s orders.
This has led to debate on what constitutes as “essential” and, of course, zealous liberals would find it “essential” to be able to continue murdering unborn babies. After all, what else are women stuck in quarantine supposed to do besides continue to have promiscuous, unprotected sex. What fun would that be if they actually had to face the consequences of that behavior?
CBS News reports:
On Wednesday, the Ohio Department of Health ordered all “non-essential and elective surgeries” be temporarily suspended to preserve protective gear for health care workers. Though the directive made no mention of abortion services, by Friday, the state’s Attorney General’s office had sent letters to two of Ohio’s six clinics that provide surgical abortions, ordering them to “immediately stop performing non-essential and elective surgical abortions.”
On Saturday, a spokesperson for the Attorney General’s office clarified to CBS News that all of the state’s abortion providers needed to stop offering the procedure.
But at least five of the state’s six surgical providers say abortion is essential and time sensitive. Because of that, they say there won’t be any interruption of services.
“Planned Parenthood’s top priority is ensuring that every person can continue accessing essential health care, including abortion. We know your health care can’t wait,” said Iris E. Harvey and Kersha Deibel, the respective heads of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region, in a statement provided to CBS News. “Abortion is an essential, time-sensitive medical procedure.”
Of course it is, if you’re looking to be able to continue to live a responsibility and consequence-free lifestyle which is the cornerstone of liberalism. Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics in the state released statements saying they would not be shutting down abortion services despite the Attorney General’s orders.
The Attorney General’s office said it would pursue legal action against the clinics if the Health Department determines the facilities are in violation of the order restricting “non-essential” surgeries.
“This is not about abortions,” said Bethany McCorkle, a spokesperson for the Attorney General, in an email to CBS News on Sunday evening. “This is about nonessential surgeries using PPE during this pandemic.”
When it comes down to it, it really isn’t about abortions. It’s about the materials these clinics are using that may end up being needed by medical staff who are trying to help patients struck with the coronavirus fight for their lives.
But, we shouldn’t expect abortion clinics to care about saving lives. They are literally in the business of taking lives. Unfortunately, they don’t stand to make a profit on lives lost to the coronavirus.
This is just another example of how the liberal, progressive agenda trumps everything. The wants and desires of leftists are more important than the greater good. A perfect illustration of just how selfish and entitled leftists truly are and that liberalism is a mental disorder.
