(National Sentinel)Â Pro-Death:Â In a blatant affront to the sensibilities of pro-Life Americans, one Texas-based abortion provider is offering its services free to pregnant women who managed to survive Hurricane Harvey.
As reported by Mediate, a misnamed group called Whole Womenâ€™s Health, which allegedly exists to provide â€œhealth servicesâ€ to women whose mothers did not elect to kill them before they were born, became infamous in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Courtâ€™s landmark 2016 decision regarding Texas laws that targeted abortion providers.
After Texas lawmakers passed legislation dramatically restricting abortion clinic operations in the state, the group sued and won; the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Texas law was â€˜unconstitutionalâ€™ in that it imposed â€˜medically unnecessary restrictions.â€™
So while other Texas laws do place other requirements and restrictions on the procedure â€” a woman cannot legally get an abortion in the state after 20 weeksâ€™ gestation â€” clinics can still operate, and, as you might have guessed, Whole Womenâ€™s Health is one of them.
And now, clinic operators are using the Harvey disaster as a sort of recruiting platform to kill more unborn children. According to a blog post on the organizationâ€™s website, Whole Womenâ€™s Health will provide â€œno-cost abortions for patients affected by Hurricane Harveyâ€ â€” whatever that means â€” â€œfor the month of September.â€
â€œWe want to help. Call us,â€ the post continued.
The group complained about restrictive Texas laws, and said that the storm was making it even more difficult to get the procedure, having damaged and closed other clinics:
Unfortunately, we know all too well that abortion can be difficult to access in some parts of the country, especially in Texas. There are already so many barriers to access this necessary procedure, and natural disasters stand in the way of women getting to their appointment and/or being able to afford care.
â€œ[W]e can do more. Texas women deserve it,â€ said the post.
Apparently their unborn children â€œdeserveâ€ what theyâ€™re going to get, as well. (Related: Planned Parenthood president caught haggling to get the best profit selling organs from aborted babies.)
â€œContinued political attacks on abortion access make an unwanted pregnancy particularly stressful in Texas â€” add that to the stress of dealing with hurricane aftermath,â€ the post continues. â€œWe can only imagine what a stressful time this must be for those patients who had to miss their appointments or are waiting for the nearest clinic to open.â€
Now mind you, in far-Left states run by liberal Democrats, itâ€™s perfectly okay for legislators to choose not to regulate abortion in ways that pro-death advocates would support. But apparently, if lawmakers in red states like, say, Texas, decide they cannot in good conscience make it easier to destroy human life, theyâ€™re viewed as Neanderthals, â€œanti-choice,â€ and â€œanti-women.â€
How about pro-baby?
You know, the persons most at risk in cases of abortion are the ones who have no say whatsoever in what happens to them: The unborn child.
Yes, yes, I get the whole â€œto save the womanâ€™s lifeâ€ argument and all, but for the vast majority of cases abortions are not performed to â€œsaveâ€ the life of the mother (which is a misnomer because you actually have to have a child before you can be a â€œmotherâ€); they are purely elective. Voluntary. Used as an â€œoutâ€ for bad planning, bad behavior, or just plain bad luck. It happens.
Thatâ€™s what makes claims by pro-abortion groups that they primarily exist for â€œwomenâ€™s healthâ€ particularly galling: Itâ€™s not inherently unhealthy to be pregnant. Itâ€™s a natural condition. Itâ€™s procreation. Itâ€™s not a â€œhealthâ€ issue at all, in the regular sense of the word.
Taking advantage of a natural disaster to sow more death in a country where far too many people are far more concerned with saving the life of an animal than they are the life of a human being is disgusting, but par for the course when it comes to the â€œprogressiveâ€ Left.
Then again, the proliferation of abortion has led to the cheapening of human life, so what are we to expect?
