  5. Abby Johnson:

    Pro-choice advocates contend that abortion is an essential and time-sensitive medical service.While people everywhere are trying to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, politicians like Gov. Abbott continue this perverse obsession with banning abortion, those who are caring for their families, forced to work essential jobs, and doing what they can to stay healthy need access to health care right now. Instead, these politicians are forcing patients to travel hundreds of miles putting themselves and their families at risk. Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised the stayorder. We are pleased that the Court recognized the urgency and necessity of Governor Abbotts order. All elective surgeries and procedures, including abortions, must cease during this national crisis, Dannenfelser said in a statement provided to Fox News. At a time when millions of Americans are making heroic sacrifices to protect the vulnerable, and legitimate health care workers risk their own lives to care for COVID-19 patients with crucial protective equipment in short supply, the abortion industry led by Planned Parenthood demands special treatment anddiverts scarce resources.
