A leading pro-life executive sees the abortion industry taking advantage of the pandemic.
Planned Parenthood has shuttered a number of its clinics in order to dedicate staff and medical supplies to centers that do abortions. And Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League reports they now want to expand and offer webcam abortions nationwide by the end of the month.
"Bills have been passed against this type of unsafe practice of medicine in many states," Scheidler notes. "But they're using this COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to push for it, saying that they can distribute these abortion pills through a webinar or something, a Zoom meeting with a client without anybody being there to take blood pressure, to take a history, to figure out if there might be contraindications."
He adds that the abortion giant is taking advantage of the idea of operating remotely to maintain funding for its bottom line.
"It's unconscionable," the pro-lifer asserts. "They shouldn't even be performing any abortions at this time in the midst of the healthcare crisis, expending medical materials. This is just one more example of Planned Parenthood's profiteering and their callous disregard of health and safety and the good of society.”
Planned Parenthood's reaction to the pandemic, in Scheidler’s opinion, exposes the abortion giant's true agenda, and it is not healthcare.
Meanwhile, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency is allocating $2 million to send abortion kits to Africa as it suffers because of the coronavirus. The continent is in short supply of what is needed to combat the novel virus, including a tremendous lack of ventilators and other equipment.
"They see it as an opportunity to advance their agenda, which is an agenda of death," says Steven Mosher of the Population Research Institute. "Of course the terrible irony of all this is that death is already being visited upon the African continent by the China coronavirus, and apparently they believe that the number of deaths is not high enough from the virus, so they want to provide abortion kits to increase the number of fatalities to include unborn children."
The double irony, he adds, is that children are generally less impacted by the virus.
"The Swedish organization, helped by DKT International, an organization funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation by the way -- they decided that although the coronavirus normally passes over the very young, they're going to make sure that some of the very young are eliminated anyway,” Mosher laments.
America is already producing enough ventilators and other equipment needed to fight the virus in the homeland, so it can begin supplying other countries. But under the current administration, Mosher thinks it is a given that no abortion kits will be shipped to Africa.
