Skip to comments.Diane Feinstein: Not Hypocritical to Save People From Coronavirus and Kill Babies in Abortions
Posted on 04/15/2020 10:36:02 AM PDT by Morgana
Irony is almost always lost on abortion activists, especially when they are talking about how important it is to protect peoples lives. They never see that its intellectually inconsistent to talk about how much they want to save peoples lives after birth when they are perfectly fine with taking peoples lives before.
Thats exactly the issue with comments from Diane Feinstein yesterday. She condemned states that have issued orders stopping abortions, along with other medically unnecessary procedures in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus. In so doing, she said its perfectly fine to save peoples lives from COVID-19 but also perfectly fine with killing people before birth.
That illogical statement can only make sense if you think killing unborn children is health care, and Feinstein wraps up her comments about abortion in the vague nomenclature of womens health care.
Its unconscionable that eight states are using the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to block women from exercising their reproductive rights, including abortion, Feinstein said. Using a public health crisis as an excuse to attack a womans right to health care is unacceptable and must stop. Its a false choice to say we can either protect a womans constitutional right to make her own health care decisions or effectively respond to the coronavirus pandemic. We can do both.
Feinstein of course never mentions the legitimate womens health care that women cant get today because of the coronavirus: routine mammograms, pap smears, hip or knee replacements, cataract surgery, physicals the list goes on and on. She doesnt really care about womens health care, shes only concerned with making sure people can kill their babies.
But doctors dont think abortion is health care or medically essential.
Dr. Christina Francis, who practices in Indiana and chairs the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists, said doctors all across the country are postponing medical procedures to conserve resources and protect patients from the coronavirus.
We are setting aside all kinds of what would otherwise be considered essential healthcare I would say more essential healthcare than abortion, certainly cancer screenings, Francis told NPR.
Its true. According to the AP, cancer treatments, stents to prevent clogged arteries, dental work, infertility treatments, joint replacements and more are being postponed because of the pandemic. These are important health care procedures; they save lives and relieve pain, but they are being delayed so that hospitals have more beds, equipment and staff to treat people suffering from the virus.
But Francis said abortions, which are a social solution, not a medical one, are continuing as usual.
Abortion is not essential healthcare; it doesnt treat a disease process, she said. There are other solutions that we can provide to women who find themselves in very scary and uncertain circumstances right now.

Abortions kill unborn babies and often harm mothers. Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America, including Franciss organization, emphasized that abortions are not essential or urgent, and abortion facilities that continue to operate during the pandemic are being medically irresponsible.
Common abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth.
The pro-life medical organizations noted that, by continuing elective abortions, the abortion industry also is generating more patients for already overburdened emergency rooms across the country.
According to the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists, most abortion facilities tell women to go to the emergency room if they experience complications, and approximately 5% of women who have drug-induced abortions will need to be seen in the emergency room, usually due to hemorrhage.
Abortion facilities are using scarce medical supplies to abort unborn babies in elective abortions, too. Some Planned Parenthoods even are asking people to donate personal protective equipment and other medical supplies supplies that hospitals critically need for coronavirus patients.
The pro-life medical groups pointed to the Hippocratic Oath, which doctors swear to uphold. It says that doctors will do no harm to patients. But abortions are the exact antithesis of the oath. Their very purpose is to kill an unborn baby.
Further, if abortion were essential health care, one would assume that most OB-GYNs would provide them, but most do not. The medical groups pointed to statistics indicating that approximately 85% of practicing obstetricians and gynecologists do not do elective abortions.
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 everyones risk of exposure to COVID-19, and to conserve scarce medical resources, the group of pro-life physicians said.
Abortions kill unique, living human beings. They are not essential. They do not heal or relieve pain. Society should be focused on saving lives, not killing them.
It’s not hypocritical if you’re a psychopath.
If you have to lib-splain this, clearly its hypocritical
Only people completely divorced from reality think abortion has anything to do with health care.
If Planned Parenthood wasn’t a slush fund i.e. federal funds to PP, PP donates to Democrat campaigns, Democrats get elected or re-elected, pass legislation for more PP funding, PP donates to Democrats, etc. wash, rinse, repeat ... the leftists’ fanatical support for the tired “reproductive rights” platform would vanish.
If it wasn’t you wouldn’t need to even point it out. There is no need to explain an obvious fact...right Diane?
Democrats are a child-hating death cult.
They want unlimited abortion, right up until delivery.
After delivery they want the right to “have a discussion” and then kill them.
Some have advocated killing children up to age 2 or 3.
If a child survives this far, they try to sexualize them at an unnaturally young age.
They advocate the child become a homosexual or change sexes. They reward and praise them for accepting what the pervert teacher says. They want them to be a drag queen and use ketamine.
If they make it to high school they risk kidnap into a democrat pedophile sex cult like pizzagate, Podesta, the Clintons, Epstein, etc.
If they miss all that they move into adulthood in a twisted world the democrats are making of our culture in movies, music, and art. If they are in the Navy, they are forced to watch a drag queen perform underway. If they are in the Air Force they see a wiccan monument. Christianity is mocked and attacked. In a pandemic Churches and gun stores are closed. Weed stores and abortion clinics are open.
When they reach a certain age, they are told to look into euthanasia, and are told we must not waste money on healthcare for them. They are guilted out, but can atone by taking the government-offered suicide pill.
Ergo, The Democrat party is a satanic, child-hating death cult.
She condemned states that have issued orders stopping abortions
Her 20 year China spy must be still giving the orders to her.
What an evil bitch.
Abortion is not essential healthcare; it doesnt treat a disease process
When people realize that Leftists think of a baby in utero as a parasite, only living off the mother, it is only then will they understand how Leftists see our children. So many babies who might live, except for abortion, would be adopted by people who really want a baby. But then, a Leftist sees being able to get a good part in a movie to further their acting career Is apparently a good enough reason to kill a parasite. They are soulless.....that is the only explanation.
What an evil bitch.
How about aborting liberal senators?
So many want killing and so many to kill. The left thinks they only think like that. Heads need to roll.
Abortion is Elective Surgery.
Right now there is no Elective Surgery being performed.
Of course, the Child in the Womb doesn’t have a choice, so for them this isn’t an Elective Procedure, Kung Flu or no Kung Flu...
Remind me again who’s office “leaked” Ford’s letter.
God has some very special places reserved for these Liberals-—ALL of them.
Which Article, Paragraph, Sentence, or Amendment in our Constitution specifies the right to abort a woman’s unborn child?
Except for rape, a “woman’s right to choose” consists of her right to choose NOT to have sex. No more, no less.
STFU fineswine and go get a few Liters of botox pumped into your face /a$$. Well it is hard to tell the difference between them.
