    Planned Parenthood claims abortion is a ‘religious value’

    In an effort to drum up religious support for continuing elective abortions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Planned Parenthood’s clergy board is calling on “people of faith to speak out in this moment of crisis and affirm that access to abortion care is a religious value.”

    Planned Parenthood clinics across the country have been either closed or ordered to cease elective abortions in a nationwide effort to reserve critical medical supplies for doctors and nurses fighting against the coronavirus outbreak.

    The chair of Planned Parenthood’s clergy board, claimed that ending the life of unborn babies is a right of conscience.

    Planned Parenthood leaders in Alaska and elsewhere have condemned state governors who have required temporary halts to elective abortions.

    Gov. Mike Dunleavy issued a clarification last week stating that the ban on elective surgeries includes surgical abortions unless they are done to protect the life or physical health of the mother.

    The April 7 statement from the abortion business’ clergy board claims that such mandates violate reproductive rights.

    “Many of us serve as pastoral counselors and chaplains to families and individuals,” the clergy state. “Our experience leads us to protect access to reproductive health care, especially during this national medical emergency.”

    The statement included a cloaked reference to support for taxpayer funded abortion during the economic struggles brought about due to COVID-19.

    “Therefore, we call on national, state, and local leaders to do everything necessary to provide health care coverage to all who need it, regardless of their ability to pay, and that must include essential reproductive health care.”

    Rev. Marci Auld Glass, who serves as chair of Planned Parenthood’s clergy board, claimed that ending the life of unborn babies is a right of conscience.

    “In this moment of crisis,” she said, “people of faith must stand together and demand that politicians stop using this pandemic to gamble with women’s health, lives, and well-being by denying them access to abortion care.”

    The clergy board also opposes pro-life crisis pregnancy centers which offer women health care and pro-life alternatives to abortion, including adoption, parenting classes, material support and ultrasounds. These clinics are often run by faith-based outreaches that affirm the inherent value of all human life, from the moment of conception to natural death.
