The nation's oldest grassroots pro-life educational and advocacy organization says Planned Parenthood's focus on abortion during the pandemic is at the expense of hospitals in need.
In many states, including those that have temporarily halted abortion, Planned Parenthood continues to abort preborn children. Jim Sedlak of the American Life League tells OneNewsNow the abortion conglomerate closed 11 of its 17 Illinois clinics to focus staff and supplies to the clinics where abortions were still being performed.
"Planned Parenthood of greater New York operates 28 centers, and they announced that all the services at the 28 centers would be done over the Internet or on the phone, except for their abortion services," Sedlak continues. "And they were going to keep the clinics open so they could do abortions."
This is at a time when hospitals and clinics are short on the equipment and supplies they need to fight the coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles has sent out a fundraising email asking for funds during the crisis.
"The first thing they listed in their email is they needed money to go out and get the personal protection equipment for their people working in the abortion facilities because they were in short supply and they were having trouble getting them," the pro-lifer relays.
Sedlak says these habits during a crisis show Planned Parenthood is all about abortion and not about providing health services.
