The hospital where my husband works has banned visitors, removed the tables from its cafeterias, cancelled all non-emergent surgeries. They’re asking the public for donations of PPE (personal protective equipment) because they’re concerned about shortages, because they want to be able to save as many lives as possible. These things are right.
A few blocks away, in a pink “women’s health” building, staff use PPE in non-emergent procedures to kill babies at the rate of dozens each week. In spite of calls for social distancing, in spite of needs for equipment in life-saving situations, in spite of all non-essential businesses and offices shutting down, women are welcomed to crowd in for elective procedures to end lives. These things are not right.
So today, though our world seems united in unprecedented efforts to save as many already-born lives as possible, pre-born babies are yet being killed, at a cost to the already-born as well. Is killing babies truly an essential business?
We read sin’s ravaging of creation in a virus that attacks and kills bodies. This should grieve us. But we read sin’s ravaging of souls in this persistent evil of abortion. This should be the greater grief.
If this grieves you, will you consider following this link to express that grief in action? Thank you!
