Why are abortion businesses still operating when Gov. Ralph Northam (Democrat) is shutting churches, schools, and mass gatherings?
Currently, across the United States, including Virginia, services that constitute essential health care for women, such as routine Pap smears, mammograms, and pelvic exams, are being postponed in order to reduce everyone’s risk of exposure to COVID-19 and to conserve scarce medical resources. Yet, the abortion industry is open for business as usual.
On March 25, 2020, Gov. Northam signed a Public Health Emergency Order, which directed all hospitals to stop performing elective surgeries or procedures. The press release states that this directive does not apply to family planning services, i.e. abortion facilities. While many healthcare agencies have ceased their non-essential medical, surgical, and dental procedures, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers across Virginia insist on business as usual – performing around 42 abortions per day while consuming Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other equipment that COVID-19 patients need.
We need to urge the Governor and the Secretary of Health and Human Resources (HHR) Daniel Carey, M.D. to safeguard women and our healthcare providers by:
- Ensuring that emergency response funds are not diverted to the abortion industry,
- Ceasing operations and joining other healthcare providers who have ceased elective procedures,
- Urging abortion providers to donate their PPE and other equipment to coronavirus response,
- Safeguarding women who frequently require additional emergency response from complications.
Immediate Action Needed
#1. Please contact Gov. Northam and HHR Sec. Daniel Carey. Urge them to join other states by closing abortion clinics and redirecting PPE and other medical equipment to our state’s much-needed coronavirus response. Be sure to let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of Virginia.
#2. Forward this email to family and friends.
Please pray: Dear Father, we ask that you move on the hearts of Gov. Northam and Sec. Carey to seek You in all things, especially with regard to this issue of life.
“Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
And plead the cause of the poor and needy.”
Thank you for taking action at this critical time.
