    As the world remains in lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Planned Parenthood continues to perform abortions--in many cases even when they've been prohibited by law as non-essential, elective procedures! These abortions use medical equipment, facilities, personnel, and supplies to end lives even as they are in short supply to save lives from COVID-19. The abortion industry is even trying to use the global health crisis to expand webcam abortions! On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Matt Britton, and Sue Thayer discuss what you can do to save lives from abortion during this unprecedented time. PRAY! Call your governor to insist that as an elective procedure, abortion be prohibited. If your state has prohibited abortion during the pandemic, report violations to law enforcement.  Think about ways you can serve all those who are vulnerable at this time--including the elderly and other at-risk members of your community.  Obey any social distancing orders in your state.
