In a strange turn of events, the pandemic has started to save unborn lives.
With shutdowns across the country, abortion facilities have struggled to find business.
And new research has revealed the shocking number of clinics that could close permanently!
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, liberal pro-abortion activists have tried to push abortion as an “essential” medical service.
Claiming that “sexual and reproductive health services” are absolute needs on par with food and sanitation, the pro-abortion movement has pressured communities across the country to buy into the liberal agenda.
But President Trump and other pro-life groups have faithfully pushed back and protected the lives of the unborn in America!
The Trump administration recently called out the UN for furthering the abortion agenda, and other pro-life activists have worked hard to provide healthcare and financial support for mothers in need during the pandemic.
And this activism is having amazing results!
According to a progressive, pro-abortion news site, dozens of abortion facilities across the United States are due to close soon.
“On-the-ground access to abortion care is changing every minute,” said Nikki Madsen, executive director of the Abortion Care Network.
Madsen’s organization represents over one hundred “independent” abortion clinics that are not affiliated with Planned Parenthood or other abortion providers.
“If we lose those [independent] clinics, there would be 10 states that would have no care after 11 weeks of pregnancy, and four states that would have no care at all.”
You read that right: four states could be completely abortion-free within a few months!
Madsen went on to say that a majority of the abortion facilities within her organization will most likely close permanently before the end of the year.
Madsen characterized the situation as a “health crisis,” claiming that these abortion facilities provide care that women can’t find anywhere else.
She’s wrong, however, especially right now! Pro-life organizations have stepped up more than ever in the last several months to support expectant and new mothers in need.
And abortion is hardly an “essential” service for women. Far from helping women move forward with their lives, abortion procedures often leave them with physical and emotional scars and a deep feeling of emptiness.
So, Madsen’s worry over closing clinics is actually good news for mothers and babies all over the United States!
Madsen reported that many of these abortion facilities closed during the pandemic because they did not have appropriate equipment or “could not afford the massive sanitization and personnel efforts required to work through the pandemic.”
It’s ironic that such a dire event as a global pandemic could have some kind of silver lining, but that’s always how our God works.
Madsen and other pro-abortion activists are worried that abortion clinic closures will hurt women, especially those in vulnerable populations and areas.
“Without these clinics, it is a very dire situation,” Madsen said. “We’re talking about completely losing bodily autonomy.”
“These clinics serve pregnant people in communities with some of the worst Black maternal death rates in the country.”
Madsen is right to say that maternal mortality and lack of access to healthcare are real problems! But she’s wrong to assume that abortion facilities are the answer.
Pro-life organizations like Abby Johnson’s LoveLine exist to assist women in crisis. These ministries provide “direct material relief” by donating diapers, wipes, clothing, and more to mothers in need.
They also raise money to pay rent, utilities, and health insurance costs for these women.
While Madsen and other pro-abortion workers seek to kill babies in the womb, pro-life agencies are doing the practical work to ensure that America’s women can raise their children with confidence and support.
And the closure of abortion clinics won’t create an area of need—it will simply allow more women to seek help from the pro-life movement.
“We’ve had double the clients [since the pandemic began],” said Pam Whitehead, the director of LoveLine.
“[New and expecting mothers have] reached out to see if we could assist with baby items and rent during this COVID-19 scare.”
“We’ve been supporting [these women] through their pregnancies and will continue to,” Whitehead concluded.
Praise God for the potential closure of dozens of abortion clinics! And please pray for the work of pro-life ministries like LoveLine as they step up to help women all over the country.
