It turns out that executive power grabs in response to the coronavirus aren’t all bad. While many counties across the country (and a few states) are shutting down churches, the Ohio Attorney General just shut down its abortion clinics.
So…yip yip yahoo.
It only makes sense, in actuality. It’s unclear how much of Ohio’s abortion prohibition at the moment is ideology-related. In reality, it’s a common-sense measure to ration medical supplies for life-saving instead of life-taking procedures. It’s a good day in Ohio, despite the threats of coronavirus. At least babies are temporarily safe.
Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (Republican), sent letters on Friday to the state’s abortion providers, demanding they stop performing surgical abortions immediately. Yost’s letter read…
“[Y]ou and your facility are ordered to immediately stop performing non-essential and elective surgical abortions. Non-essential surgical abortions are those that can be delayed without undue risk to the current or future health of a patient,”
The letter then added an appropriate promise, “If you or your facility do not immediately stop performing non-essential or elective surgical abortions in compliance with the attached order, the Department of Health will take all appropriate measures.”
