Abortion Pill Reversal, COVID-19, and Selling Death via "Telehealth"
by Dr. Mark Rollo, M.D., MCFL Board Member
Death is for sale on line via telabortion.
The abortion industry has always been on the cutting edge when it comes to profiting from death. The very first ambulatory surgical centers were abortion clinics in New York City in the 1970's. These centers made abortion easier to perform and more lucrative. The centers were very efficient killing centers and much more profitable than utilizing hospitals.
Medical abortion (or chemical abortion) was even easier and more profitable: No abortionist, no medical equipment required--just pills. In 2008, long before COVID-19 forced an explosion of telemedicine, Planned Parenthood in Iowa began offering medical abortion via telemedicine at clinic sites not staffed by physicians. After information was obtained by clinic staff, the woman seeking abortion was electronically connected to an abortionist who was not on site. If the woman wanted to proceed with ending the life of her unborn child, the abortionist would enter a command on a computer and a drawer would open in front of the mother to dispense the abortion pills.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the increasing use of telemedicine in general and the abortion industry, following the aphorism of never letting an opportunity go to waste, is trying to take advantage of this situation despite the fact that 18 states have banned telemedicine abortion due to safety concerns. The FDA currently prohibits the abortion pill from being prescribed by abortionists via telemedicine. As of December 31, 2018, there were reports of 24 deaths associated with women who had taken the abortion pill, mifepristone. These included cases of undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies and severe infections. This is not to mention the pain, life-risking bleeding and other complications endured by women who have experienced medical abortion.
Massachusetts has joined with 20 other states in a petition to the FDA to allow telemedicine abortion because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The claim that this protects women from venturing out in public is a ruse. It is clearly exposed by the abortion industry's contradictory and simultaneous argument that elective surgical abortion is an essential service. Thus the killing of the unborn in clinics continues while procedures like joint replacements, heart operations and cancer surgery wait. The abortion industry seeks to have it both ways. In both on-site clinic abortion and telemedicine abortion, the lives of women are put at risk while babies die and the abortion industry profits. Moreover, medical supplies
are diverted from healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients thereby putting even more people at risk.
The objective of social distancing is invoked when it comes to telabortion. But this objective is conveniently ignored when it comes to the “essential service” of killing the unborn by surgical abortion.
Raise your voice today and save lives tomorrow, and in the future in Massachusetts.
Call your state senator and representative, the governor's office, and attorney general, Maura Healey.
Tell them you object to endangering women's lives via elective surgical abortion during the COVID-19 pandemic which also diverts necessary medical resources away from the front lines.
