During a normal period, abortion is a topic that is nothing if divisive.
But as the corona-virus continues it’s path of destruction across the country and across the world, some anti-abortion politicians and activists took advantage of the lack of a spotlight. In Texas, abortion was labelled as a non-essential medical procedure.
Abortion is an essential procedure. The fact that we are living through a pandemic does not take away a woman’s right to choose. In fact, it is more important than ever that our rights are upheld and not shoved aside due to a crisis.
Shame on those who would take advantage of our current situation to push their agenda. Now is not the time. When we have returned to normal, then we can return to business as usual.
But until then, we cannot allow special interests to use this crisis to their advantage.
