NORCROSS, Ga., April 7, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) and other organizations today delivered to Governor Kemp petitions with nearly 3,000 signatures asking him to call for a halt to abortions.
"The governor has requested that all non-essential procedures be postponed during this time," said GRTL President Ricardo Davis. "This should apply to abortions, which are admittedly non-essential."
By ignoring the request, Davis said abortionists are "laying bare the heartless reality that their sole motivation is profits, not women's—or anyone else's—health."
Davis asserted that by continuing business as usual, abortionists are potentially exposing women to the virus, as well as consuming precious medical resources needed to treat victims of the disease.
Other concerns include:
- Women may not be able to return for their post-surgical follow up appointment.
- Are women being properly screened for underlying conditions that increase the risk of contracting or spreading the disease?
- Are social distancing and crowd limitations being practiced by abortion providers?
In addition, abortion procedures frequently cause serious side effects, such as infection and hemorrhaging, creating an additional burden on the medical community.
Among those joining GRTL in sponsoring the petition include: Grace Link for Life, Southwest Georgia OB/GYN, Protect Student Health of Georgia, Heritage Foundation, Kennesaw, and Heritage Presbyterian Church, Cumming.
Georgia Right to Life promotes respect and effective legal protection for all innocent human life from earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of a number of organizations that have adopted Personhood as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.
