CWA signed on to a letter written to Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, along with other pro-life leaders, to show how the abortion industry is exploiting this coronavirus pandemic.
Here is an excerpt from the letter:
“While we are in a hectic race to save lives, Planned Parenthood and other powers in the abortion industry remain insistent on taking the lives of innocent unborn children. While surgery centers postpone elective and diagnostic procedures, abortion centers are churning out surgical and chemical abortions and putting women, especially the poor, at risk. Their continued operation depletes sorely needed personal protective equipment and leads to complications that will further overwhelm already overextended emergency rooms. The abortion industry is compounding one crisis with another. Therefore, we urge public officials to use their broad emergency authority to safeguard against the extreme abortion agenda.”
The letter also outlines ways public health officials can resist the abortion lobby’s agenda during this time of crisis such as:
- Making sure that emergency response funds are not diverted to the abortion industry;
- Urging the abortion industry to stop their operations and join other healthcare providers to donate their PPE and other equipment to help with the nation’s coronavirus response;
- Continue actions to stop illegal mail-order sale of chemical abortion; and much more.
Our CEO and President Penny Nance signed the letter along with more than 50 pro-life leaders.
