The monsters over at the New York Times have published a call for there to be “more abortions” during the coronavirus outbreak — and for taxpayers to pick up the bill.
The newspaper also called for the medication to perform abortions at home to be available to women without them ever having to visit a doctor.
In Thursday’s call to action titled “Make Abortion More Available During the Pandemic — Not Less,” the New York Times whined that elective abortions have been deemed “non-essential” in some places as local governments seek to save medical equipment like masks and gloves for coronavirus patients.
“In recent days, leaders in several states — including Texas, Ohio and Louisiana — have pushed to close abortion clinics or severely curtail access, arguing that abortion is a nonessential procedure that ought to be delayed,” the editorial board wrote.
The Times takes aim directly at Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat who is opposed to abortion. He recently passed an abortion law similar to the one in Texas, which the newspaper notes, will “close all but one abortion clinic in Louisiana.”
Though people could actually die from coronavirus, through no fault of their own, and there is a shortage of the supplies needed to treat them, the Times worries that the “consequences of being unable to obtain an abortion profoundly impact a person’s life, health and well-being.”
“Ah, yes, killing kids is as essential as the ER doctor saving lives. This is just a dark Orwellian leftist game. The notion that someone wanting an abortion (A CHOICE) is an equal emergency to someone’s imminent death from coronavirus or a heart attack is not convincing,” Newsbusters writer Gabriel Hays remarked about the article.
The editorial board goes on to call for the medication needed to kill a fetus to be available “by mail.”
“Given the coronavirus pandemic, it is incumbent on the F.D.A. to relax its regulation on mifepristone, at least temporarily. Doing so would allow many women to get a prescription for abortion-inducing drugs from a doctor via telemedicine, at which point the medications could be mailed to the patient,” they argued. “Unfortunately, 18 states effectively ban abortion care via telemedicine — measures that also ought to be lifted, at least for the time being.”
Perhaps worst of all, the newspaper calls for taxpayers to have to cover the bill for abortions.
“Finally, it’s long past time to end America’s bans on government funding for abortions, like the federal Hyde Amendment and similar state measures. These bans mean that poor women already struggle to afford reproductive health care — an issue that’s sure to be exacerbated during the coronavirus crisis and the economic fallout from it,” they wrote.
The Times describes their editorial board as “a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values. It is separate from the newsroom.”
