Yashica Robinson is an OB-GYN who provides legitimate medical care to women in Alabama when she isn’t aborting unborn babies.
But right now, during the coronavirus crisis, Robinson appears to have stopped her legitimate health care services to focus on her life-destroying abortion practice.
On Monday, she told a federal judge that she has delayed patients’ hysterectomies, sterilizations and other medical procedures because of the coronavirus, Courthouse News reports.
Alabama recently ordered a temporary halt on non-essential medical procedures to conserve medical supplies and prevent further spread of the virus. It was one of several states that included elective abortions in that order – a measure that Robinson now is fighting in court.
She argued that abortions, unlike hysterectomies and sterilizations, are different because they cannot be put off for long, according to the report. She told U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson that abortion risks increase as the pregnancy progresses.
“Delay increases the risk of harm to patients,” Robinson said.
Robinson said the Alabama Women’s Center in Huntsville did cancel several abortions because of the state order. However, the abortion facility is doing them again after Thompson blocked the state from enforcing the mandate as it pertains to elective abortions.
As mixed-up as her priorities are, Robinson is not alone. In Pennsylvania, many Planned Parenthood facilities also are now open for “abortions only.” Meanwhile, its patients have to wait for birth control, urinary tract infection treatments, STI treatment/testing and other health services.

And in Missouri, a pro-abortion OB-GYN recently expressed thankfulness that abortions are still being provided, while admitting that she is struggling to decide whether to delay surgeries for patients with painful gynecological problems.
“Our hospital is asking us to delay non-urgent surgical cases. I struggle to determine which cases qualify for this,” Dr. Amy Addante wrote on Twitter. “Fibroid patients with bleeding? Ovarian masses causing pain? Luckily, abortion care is not being impacted.”
According to the AP, cancer treatments, stents to prevent clogged arteries, dental work, infertility treatments, joint replacements and more are being postponed because of the pandemic. These are important health care procedures; they save lives, heal and relieve pain, but they are being delayed so that hospitals have more beds, equipment and staff to treat people suffering from the virus.
Abortions are not health care. They do not save lives. They destroy them. Unborn babies are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception, and they deserve a right to life. Abortions also can put women’s health at risk. Common 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.
Abortions are not “essential,” either. According to National Right to Life, “Women have cited ‘social reasons,’ not mother’s health or rape/incest, as their motivation in approximately 93% of all abortions.”
Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America emphasized that abortions are not “essential” or “urgent,” and abortion facilities that continue to operate during the pandemic are being “medically irresponsible.”
But the same abortion facilities and abortionists who are putting off true medical care are fighting in court to keep aborting unborn babies in elective abortions.
