TRANSCRIPT


Faithful Catholics are prayerfully pleading for a cure to the Chinese virus, but a happy side-effect is also occurring: Louisiana, Texas and Ohio each have issued orders suspending all non-essential surgeries, and that includes abortions.

The three remaining Louisiana abortion mills will be closing, and the facilities appear to be complying for now.

However, an official at one of the three, Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, said they are intending to fight the directive amid their closure.

In Texas, the attorney general's office says it will shut down any clinics providing abortions — explicitly saying they are not essential surgeries, following Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order.

Ohio issued a similar order to Texas' and Louisiana's, and abortion chambers there are already rebelling against the order.

The Northeast Ohio Women's Center: "The Northeast Ohio Women's Center is open for service. The order from the Ohio governor limiting elective surgeries does not apply to our facility."

Planned Parenthood's attorneys are claiming abortion is an essential service and will be fighting to allow abortions despite the order. 

Another abortion center in Cleveland, which has killed multiple women in botched abortions, also said it will refuse to follow the order.

The state attorney general's office says it will pursue legal action against the abortion chambers if the health department determines that they are violating the order, and faithful Catholics are praying they keep their word.
