Actress and abortion activist Alyssa Milano criticized Texas this week for banning abortions, along with a long list of elective medical procedures, in its efforts to combat the coronavirus.
Milano, who starred in the TV shows “Charmed” and “Who’s the Boss?”, has become known as an abortion activist in more recent years. Last year, she led campaigns in Hollywood to boycott Georgia and other states that are trying to protect unborn babies from abortion. In the midst of her campaigning, she admitted that she aborted two of her own unborn babies.
On Tuesday, she accused Texas of using the coronavirus crisis to end abortions, according to Breitbart. Though abortions kill unborn babies and often hurt mothers, Milano described them as health “care.”
“Texas is using this crisis to prevent access to a [sic] abortion care,” Milano wrote on Twitter, linking to a story about Texas health measures that are being taken to address the coronavirus.

Within the past week, Texas and a number of other states have limited non-essential medical procedures to help prepare for the pandemic. Many hospitals are concerned about a lack of supplies and equipment to treat people with the virus, and the temporary restrictions are one way to ensure medical resources are being used to save lives.

On Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton emphasized that Texas’s executive order applies to abortion facilities as well as non-essential medical providers, Breitbart reports.
“No one is exempt from the governor’s executive order on medically unnecessary surgeries and procedures, including abortion providers,” Paxton said. “Those who violate the governor’s order will be met with the full force of the law.”
He said such measures are necessary because the pandemic “has increased demands for hospital beds and has created a shortage of personal protective equipment needed to protect health care professionals and stop transmission of the virus.”
Women do not need to abort their unborn babies to be healthy. Abortions kill unborn babies’ lives and put mothers at risk. Common abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion where parts of the baby remain inside the mother’s womb. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it simply is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth. Mothers who cannot get abortions are not unhealthy as a result. They become mothers of newborn babies.
State leaders are saving lives by putting a temporary halt to abortions. Their orders protect both the born and unborn by stopping abortion facilities from killing unborn babies and harming mothers in unnecessary procedures. In doing so, they also are conserving much-needed medical supplies for those who really need them.
