All crises reveal what’s truly important to us.
For example, in Massachusetts, hospitals are postponing all “‘non-essential surgeries’ in order to prepare for the potential onslaught of coronavirus cases.”
But how do you define nonessential? A person in constant, excruciating pain could consider hip-replacement essential to their well-being, or a colonoscopy could be essential to prevent or detect colon cancer before it spreads.
In Massachusetts, those procedures didn’t fit the definition of “essential.” But guess what did? Abortion.
So, a colonoscopy, which could literally save a life if timely, is non-essential, but an abortion, which literally takes a life, is essential? Postpone an abortion and, in the worst case, a child is still alive but given up for adoption a few months later.
Gloria Steinem once said that “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” Apparently, in Massachusetts at least, the coronavirus has revealed it already is.
