France: Green light for Telemedicine Abortion During Re-confinement

November 16, 2020

In the land of human rights, the second phase of confinement gives no respite for the life of the unborn child: the French government has indeed just relaxed the legal deadline for resorting to a medical voluntary termination of pregnancy (IVG) [telemedicine abortion], outside of hospitals.

Unsurprisingly, in a statement published on November 9, 2020, the government “decided to renew the exceptional measures adopted during the first confinement,” concerning the possibility of abortion.

Without doubt, the executive appeals to the noblest feelings that the elements of language allow to convey: it is a question of “preventing possible difficulties to the access to abortion, consequences both of the strong mobilization of our hospital system and the limitation of consultations carried out there.”

On the issue of “access difficulties” to the life of the unborn child caused by abortion, the government remains silent: no one should be surprised.

Death can now be decided remotely, since the new provisions make possible “teleconsultations” for the prescription of medical abortion, if the woman so wishes.

In addition, the time limit for resorting to a medical abortion outside a hospital “is relaxed, thus going from seven to nine weeks of amenorrhea.” The “tele-patient” will thus be able to obtain the feticide poison in pharmacies: there is still no treatment against the virus, but the “anti-baby pill” is available.

For the record: in 2019, there were two hundred and thirty-two thousand (232,300) abortions in France, of which nearly seventy percent were performed via medication.

It cannot be stressed enough: the crime of abortion cries out to heaven for vengeance and deserves retribution from the nation which practices it so fiercely.
