Over 30K Physicians Are Demanding This Controversial Procedure Be Suspended
The Corona Virus is spreading fast here in the United States. We have put forth numerous measures to combat the pandemic including quarantines, curfews, and advising the public to keep a healthy 6ft away from each other. The Trump Administration has even put forth many travel bans to prevent people from highly infected countries from coming here. But there is another big issue that we will soon face if we go the way of Italy or China and that's medical supply shortages.
In Italy, they do not even have enough beds for all of the patients. It has become so bad that hospitals are now turning people away that are over 60. Hopefully, it does not come to that in the United States and there is a way that we might be able to at least delay that reality. Doctors have come together signing a letter calling for the suspension of abortions as they needlessly use up medical supplies that could go to people that are dire need of it.
"As representatives of over 30,000 physicians who practice according to the Hippocratic Oath, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), the American College of Pediatricians, Christian Medical & Dental Associations, the Catholic Medical Association, and the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons decry the call to continue elective abortion during the COVID-19 pandemic made by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and others which falsely characterize elective abortion as essential healthcare.
In such an uncertain and tumultuous time, the entire healthcare profession is being called upon to conserve resources and healthcare professionals to an extent never seen before. And yet, in the midst of this call, while hospitals are postponing elective procedures and many outpatient clinics are rescheduling non-essential office visits, the abortion industry continues with business as usual.
In their recent joint statement, ACOG with several other traditionally pro-abortion medical organi- zations, made the preposterous claim that “abortion is an essential component of comprehensive health care” for women, even though elective abortion treats no disease process.
Furthermore, over 85% of practicing obstetricians and gynecologists do not perform elective abor- tions. If elective abortion were an “essential component” of women’s health care, it would be a part of every obstetric and gynecologic practice.
Currently, across the United States, services that do constitute essential health care for women, including 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."
Abortions in many cases are elective. Men can use condoms and women should birth control If their aim is not to get pregnant. But aside from the life-saving condition where the baby is going to kill the mother or in the event of a rape, it should be suspended. Those medical supplies can be used to save lives in this trying time when we are still unsure of how bad things are going to get.
