Democrats Trying To Use Coronavirus Funding For Abortions

Pelosi Coronavirus Abortion
Amid the coronavirus “pandemic” hospitals have begun to restrict access and to cancel “nonessential, elective invasive procedures,” such as knee replacements and colonoscopies, but it appears abortions will continue unabated. reports a memorandum shared this week clarifies what constitutes a “nonessential, elective invasive procedure” that should be postponed or canceled while Massachusetts is under a state of emergency.

Abortions do not fit that definition, according to the guidance.

The memo obtained by and sent by Elizabeth Kelley, director of the state’s Bureau of Health Care Safety and Quality, states, “Terminating a pregnancy is not considered a nonessential, elective invasive procedure for the purpose of this guidance. However, the ultimate decision is based on clinical judgment by the caring physician.”

Hip and knee replacements, injections into a joint space or body cavity, colonoscopies and similar procedures are considered “nonessential, elective invasive procedures” that fall under the commissioner’s order.

The equal prioritizing of killing babies with preserving the lives of those infected with coronavirus is one of the most macabre developments to come out of the Wuhan virus epidemic, but as our friends at the Media Research Center reported it fits with other “don’t let a good crisis go to waste” actions Democrats have used to try to advance their unlimited abortion to the moment of birth agenda.

Our friends at the Media Research Center report that in a move most leftist “news” media sites appear to have overlooked during the recent “Coronavirus Emergency Funding” battle between President Trump and the Dems in D.C., White House sources report that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to slip funding for abortionists into the bill.

The Hyde Amendment, which is routinely attached to federal spending bills after a 2017 effort by the House failed to make the bipartisan law permanent, blocks federal funds from being used for elective abortions. Democrats have pushed since 2016 to repeal the amendment and open up federal funding for abortions nationwide noted the MRC’s P. Gardner Goldsmith.

According to the MRC’s report, White House officials said Pelosi's version of the coronavirus response bill didn't include a Hyde provision, meaning it would have instead created a "slush fund" freeing up taxpayer dollars for abortions under the emergency spending bill.

“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” one White House official explained to the MRC. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion — which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”

According to Pelosi, "Families have needs. 'We don’t need 48 hours. We need to just make a decision to help families right now." "Right now we have to find our common ground, work together, to get this done as soon as possible," claimed the Speaker.

Someone in Congress tried to use the coronavirus panic to get around a statutory block against federal funding for abortion clinics observed Mr. Goldsmith. What this tells us is that while most Americans assume Congress is working to assist the President in stifling the epidemic, conservatives must be alert to the reality that Democrats and the Left will relentlessly use every vehicle available to advance their agenda, and the coronavirus panic is perfect cover for sneaking all sorts of radical measures through Congress.
