Politicizing A Pandemic

According to a report in the Daily Caller, senior White House officials claim that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pressed for “several” provisions which would guarantee federal funding for abortion services……during negotiations on a coronavirus economic relief package. One of those several demands was for $1 billion to reimburse laboratory claims. Can you say, “E-V-I-L?” But progressives never let a good crisis go to waste, and this world-wide life-threatening disease pandemic is no exception. Apparently, if pro-abortionists find themselves negotiating to save countless lives, they feel the necessity to ensure that funding is provided to take countless lives, as well. Yin-yang, I guess, to use a little Chinese lingo. After all, seems appropriate in this case.  
What the hell does abortion have to do with protecting Americans from the coronavirus, you ask? Good question. Perhaps the more people protected from the coronavirus, the more will elect to have abortions. (I was going to say “women” instead of people, but I wanted to be inclusive.) Incredibly, Pelosi lashed out at Republicans for not immediately rolling over and acquiescing to her demands. She stated of the pushback, “Families have needs. We don’t need 48 hours. We need to just make a decision to help families now.” In reference to Congress’s upcoming recess week, she added, “I’m not sticking around because they don’t want to agree to language. Right now we have to find our common ground, work together, to get this done as soon as possible.” This is right out of the Democratic Playbook: add a partisan provision to a bill that has nothing whatsoever to do with it…and then blame Republicans for noticing.
This is another in a series of disgusting—and divisive—actions in which Pelosi has recently engaged. You will recall that she ripped up a copy of President trump’s State of the Union Address immediately upon its completion, with the world still watching. The Speaker is to repulsive as the Pacific is to oceans.
Speaking of repulsive, Planned Parenthood addressed the issue, tweeting: “Using this very real public health emergency to attack abortion coverage shows a despicable lack of concern about the severity of the crisis.” This, of course, is exactly the reverse of reality. It’s so preposterous, you can’t make it up. The administration and Republicans weren’t trying to use this crisis to “attack abortion coverage,” but Pelosi, Democrats and Planned Parenthood were trying to use it to promote abortion. Moreover, abortion itself is a crisis, a public health emergency.
Must Democrats make everything political? (It’s a rhetorical question. Sadly, I know the answer is ‘yes.’) Frankly, I’m surprised they didn’t also ask for another billion dollars to fund transgender bathrooms.
Let us all pray that the coronavirus, COVID-19, can be contained and eradicated in the very near future. Let us pray for those affected by this scourge. But let’s also remember that there is another illness to which we have already fallen prey: a sickness of the soul. And we need to fight this one, too.
