During this crisis, life is changing for just about everyone in American. But some people think they are entitled to not change.
Texas is not immune to the massive shutdowns orders happening everywhere. The governor and local leaders have issued numerous restrictions, including stay at home orders.
The governor went a step further, ordering that unnecessary medical procedures should be put on hold.
That includes abortions—which could take needed resources away from the battle against the virus.
If you can believe it, Democrats fought this order. A district court overruled the governor’s rule.
But now the Fifth Circuit appeals court has just weighed in.
From CBS News:
Texas will again be allowed to implement its temporary ban on abortion, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday afternoon. Per the order, any abortion “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the patient must be halted as part of the state’s directive suspending “non-essential” medical procedures amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Boom. The Fifth Circuit Court ruled that the governor’s ban will stand.
Only ones necessary to preserve the life of a patient will be allowed.
It’s shocking to think that during a crisis like this, any procedures will be allowed that take away from the virus fight.
Trump’s task force is asking Americans to postpone elective surgeries so that hospitals can focus on fighting the disease.
Imagine wasting medical supplies—when they are in such high demand—for something like a facelift? Seems pretty criminal, huh?
Now imagine doctors being forced to use supplies, to abort a baby?
It’s kind of a no-brainer to suspend these while the country battles this virus. Every last medical resource, from doctors to nurses to supplies, should be used to save lives.
You have to wonder how any Democrat could fight that. Why push for your far-left agenda, while people are getting sick?
But we’ve seen Democrats use this crisis to further their goals. Pelosi almost got major funding for the Green New Deal. Local Democrats have tried to shut down churches and gun stores.
And some are wasting time and energy trying to keep these clinics open.
It’s nice to see where your priorities are, liberals!
SHARE to thank the Fifth Circuit for ruling on the side of life!
