A Texas abortion business announced they cancelled 150 abortion appointments overnight. The decision came after the State of Texas issued an executive order Sunday night halting all elective medical procedures, including abortions, until April 21.
Because this figure only represents three abortion facilities in Texas, the number of lives saved is likely even higher.
According to the state’s latest data, this could save 2,868 lives throughout the month in which the order is in effect.
While the medical community struggles to keep enough gowns, gloves, and other personal protective equipment to combat coronavirus, the abortion industry nationwide has refused to close even though doing so would help conserve these needed supplies. We are grateful that Texas is acting to save lives from abortion while helping the country defeat the ongoing coronavirus threat. Our mission to minister to pregnant women and vulnerable patients is more important now than ever.
