To Leftists – There’s Nothing more Essential than Planned Parenthood

With State after State deciding to either institute “shelter in place” or “stay at home” orders (not the same), the decision has to be made of just what should remain open. Just what is an essential business?
Well, common sense would dictate that these must be public sector departments and private industries which provide “essential goods and services. Things like healthcare facilities as well makers and distributors, old and new, of healthcare equipment and supplies. Those who keep the lights on, and the heat or A/C, depending on the region are essential. Those who protect us, like police and fire departments. And of course those who provide us with the means of personal protection, when the police can’t (or won’t in some cities). The facilities and people who keep the water running and toilets flushing, and anyone involved in keeping us fed and gassed up (sometimes one in the same). Oh, and of course the liquor stores. Just kidding – well kind of.
But when was the last time the word common sense and leftist were equated. Can’t think of one? Me either.
So it seems the left’s record is still intact with this latest push to include Planned Parenthood as an essential business.

Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion organizations are suing several states for temporary suspension of elective abortion in order to preserve medical resources for potential treatment of COVID-19 patients, according to The Hill.

Iowa, Texas, Alabama, and Oklahoma have been sued for similar measures by Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and/or the Center for Reproductive Rights. These states have banned nonessential surgical procedures to preserve equipment for anticipated spikes in the number of COVID-19 patients.

Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Center for Reproductive Rights argue that abortion is a time-sensitive and essential procedure.

“A global pandemic is not an excuse to attack essential, time-sensitive medical procedures like abortion,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, according to The Hill.

Iowa’s order calls for the “delay of all nonessential and elective surgeries that can be postponed without ‘undue risks to the current or future health of a patient.'”
