COVID-19 is a life issue. Over a period of two weeks in April, more Americans died from COVID-19 (more than 30,000) than were aborted during an average two-week period in 2016 (about 24,000). We need to work to end abortions and we must also do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

I don’t like being stuck in my house and not allowed to do the things I want to do. I don’t like having to stay 6 feet away from people and I’d hate it if I lost my job. If we expect women to change their lives and risk losing their jobs or partners because they don’t have an abortion, we need to be willing to adjust our lifestyles to save lives.

Shelter in place and social distancing are inconvenient, but we all have to do our part to save the lives of those around us.
