Vogue magazine tried to paint two abortionists as heroes this week because they continue to abort unborn babies in the midst of the coronavirus health crisis.
Abortionists Jen Villavicencio and Diane Horvath, who practice in Michigan and Baltimore respectively, told the magazine that they are worried about contracting the virus and giving it to their husbands. But they claimed their abortion work is just too important to stop.
“I don’t think I could ever forgive myself if I transmitted it to him,” Villavicencio told Vogue. “So I’m doing everything I can to keep him safe.”
She said she has been trying to avoid being in the same room with him. They do not share a bed right now or kiss, and she showers and changes clothes immediately after work each day, according to the report.
Horvath said she also has been taking extra steps to protect her husband from contracting the virus from her. She said she even offered to find a new place to stay temporarily until the crisis subsides, but he said no.
“I’ve had a few really frank discussions with my partner about if one of us, or both of us, got sick,” Horvath said. “… we decided that this is the life we’ve made together, and we’re going to be by each other’s side and get through this the best we can. I think, especially now, we need each other more than ever.”
Villavicencio’s family has been urging her to stop going to work right now, but she refused.
“My mom called me yesterday, and she begged me—begged me—not to go to work,” Villavicencio said. “She said, ‘Please, tell them I’m sick. Tell them you’re sick. Tell them you can’t go. They’re going to need doctors when this is over, and I can’t lose you.’ And I was sobbing because it’s not easy for me to go to work—I’m scared. I’m scared of hurting my family. I’m scared of hurting my husband. I’m scared of hurting other people.”
Yet, she claimed she must go because her abortion work is “moral.”

“… I specifically got into obstetrics and gynecology and abortion caregiving because it’s a moral duty,” she told the magazine. “I am compelled by the deepest part of my soul to help people in times of need.”
But she is not helping people. She and Horvath are destroying human lives. Unborn babies are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception, and abortions are not “essential” health care. If they were, one would assume that most OB-GYNs would provide them, but most do not. According to the report, approximately 85% of practicing obstetricians and gynecologists do not do elective 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.”
Women who are pregnant in a time of crisis deserve the utmost support from medical professionals, but an abortion is the opposite of support. It destroys a baby’s life and puts the mother at risk. Common abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth.
Meanwhile, pro-lifers are stepping up to support mothers and babies during the crisis. Option Line reported a huge increase in calls recently on its 24-hour pregnancy help hotline. Embrace Grace, another pro-life outreach, is helping to organize online baby registries, virtual meetings, and other efforts to support pregnant and new moms who choose life. And Abby Johnson recently shared that her new ministry, Love Line, which provides financial and material support to help moms choose life for their babies, recently heard from a Texas mom who decided to keep her baby because of the Gov. Greg Abbott’s order halting elective abortions.
Providing care to mothers and babies is necessary. Saving lives is necessary. But killing unborn babies in abortions is not. If only these abortionists took half as much care to help mothers and unborn babies as they did to protect their husbands from the coronavirus.
