Actor Kevin Sorbo slammed the mixed-up priorities of American politics Thursday, noting how abortion facilities are still allowed to kill unborn babies but Christians are being punished for going to church.
Sorbo is a rare pro-life voice in Hollywood. The 61-year-old actor is known for his roles in the “Hercules” TV series, “God’s Not Dead” and various other Christian films.
On Thursday, Sorbo, a Christian, commented on the drastic measures politicians are taking to protect Americans from the coronavirus. He said America is in a “morbid condition” when it allows unborn babies to be killed in abortions but bans church services on Easter.
“In a nation where liquor stores, marijuana dispensaries, and abortion clinics are deemed ‘essential’ by government bureaucrats during the coronavirus outbreak, and church attendance is judged non-essential, we don’t have to study long to diagnose the morbid condition of America,” he wrote on Twitter.

While doctors all across the country are postponing medical procedures and visits to conserve resources and protect patients, abortion facilities remain open in almost every state. Abortion facilities do elective, non-essential abortions that destroy unborn babies’ lives. Some even are suing states for including elective abortions in their restrictions on non-essential healthcare during the health crisis.
These abortion facilities are using up medical supplies needed at hospitals and legitimate medical clinics to save lives. They also risking their patients’ and staff’s health by increasing potential exposure to the virus. And the reason is to keep killing unborn babies.
In contrast, church-goers are being punished for attending services. Last week, police fined members of a Mississippi church $500 each for attending a “drive-in” church service. Supposedly they violated a social distancing order even though the church, Temple Baptist in Greenville, required attendees to stay in their vehicles with the windows up and listen to the worship service through their radios, according to the Washington Times.
Kansas lawmakers also took action Wednesday to stop Gov. Laura Kelly from banning church services on Easter while allowing abortion facilities to continue killing unborn babies in elective abortions.
Pro-life sidewalk counselors also are being arrested for offering information and resources to pregnant moms as they go into abortion facilities. Earlier this month, David Benham and several others were arrested for praying outside an abortion clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina.
