Planned Parenthood logo blackPennsylvania’s governor announced over the weekend that licensed medical professionals can provide services via telemedicine during the coronavirus outbreak, but that allowance has some pro-lifers concerned.

Michael Geer, president of the Pennsylvania Family Institute, says PFI is concerned because Gov. Tom Wolf supports abortion and is an ally of abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

“[Gov. Wolf] has been pushing telemedicine legislation, prior to the coronavirus crisis,” Geer advises, “that would not have any pro-life protections and would open the door for groups like Planned Parenthood to do telemed abortions, to basically prescribe and send chemical abortion kits to women without the woman or girl actually seeing a physician in person."

According to Geer, that violates Pennsylvania's Abortion Control Act, and it also violates FDA other federal regulations regarding the chemicals that are used.
