‘Frantic’: Media Worry About Women Who Can’t Abort During Pandemic

April 14th, 2020 3:42 PM

Media outlets have racheted up the hysterical pro-abortion rhetoric in response to some states deeming abortion clinics as “non-essential” facilities during the coronavirus pandemic. Outlets like The New York Times and USA Today are writing headlines about abortion-seeking women becoming “overwhelmed and frustrated” or making “frantic” calls to abortion providers.

USA Today echoed the suffering of women who had to drive from more conservative states like Texas to use abortion clinics in “Wichita, Kansas, and Oklahoma City.” Abortion clinic manager Julie Burkhart stated, “The calls we’ve been getting are frantic. We’ve seen more women coming sooner than they would have because they're scared they won’t be able to access the services later.”

The New York Times wouldn’t abide this hardship either, running a piece called, “Overwhelmed and Frustrated’: What It’s Like Trying to Get an Abortion in Texas.”

The coronavirus has presented an interesting challenge for pro-aborts of course, who are starting to worry that a natural disaster might wake more Americans up to the preciousness of life. New York Times reported that authorities in “Alabama, Arkansas, Ohio, Oklahoma , Tennessee and Texas” have stated that abortion is a “nonessential medical procedure.”

People who support the decision, like Texas Alliance for Life executive director Joe Pojman, deem these temporary closures are reasonable. Pojman stated, “We believe that merely delaying abortion procedures a few weeks is reasonable and necessary. Abortion providers should not get special treatment that puts health care providers fighting Covid-19 and their patients at unnecessary risk.”

Of course, The Times waved that off, saying abortion “is time-sensitive” and “it could be months before emergency measures are lifted.” And to think, weren’t we all trying to compromise a little here? Not with abortion, they’re not. Killing unborn children is just as essential as preventing Covid deaths.

So now you have “frantic” women traveling hundreds of miles because somehow their all-hallowed “choice” has become a desperate need that takes precedence over heart attacks, gun shot wounds and even Chinese virus cases.

For example, The Times painted the desperate picture of an anonymous woman, who “last week” was “18 weeks pregnant and considering driving nine hours to a clinic in Wichita, Kansas, with her infant son in the back seat.” She told the paper, “I’m just kind of overwhelmed and frustrated and stressed. I just know I can’t handle another baby. I just know. I know physically, emotionally, financially.”

Yes, we know they want us to feel for mommy, but we’re a little distracted by the image of her infant son being dragged hundreds of miles to end his younger brother or sister’s life.

USA Today offered a blurb from Michigan abortion doctor Jen Villavicencio. “I hear it in my patient’s voices and questions daily. They’re worried about how they will make their rent, feed their family, access a ventilator if the need arises.”

Hmm. Maybe don’t have sex?
