Inslee Cancels All Elective Surgeries and Procedures, Except for Abortions

In an effort to combat COVID-19, aside from mandating “social distancing,” Gov. Jay Inslee’s administration issued a directive requiring all medical and dental offices to cancel elective health care services, procedures and surgeries “that are not anticipated to cause harm to the patient within the next three months,” in order to preserve needed medical supplies for those who are fighting the virus.

I understood why this was necessary and still do. But what I do not understand is why his directive specifically and explicitly exempts abortion clinics.

Politics aside, up until this point, I had been relatively impressed with the way Washington’s governor had handled this health crisis in a nonpartisan manner in our state and with the Trump Administration. He made difficult decisions early, and was forced to make those unpopular decisions before any other states had done so. And it appears that the growth of the disease in Washington has, to this point, not followed the trend of massive spread that has been seen in other parts of the world.

But to issue this mandate and exempt abortion clinics from it shows that he appears more serious about protecting political agendas than he is in containing this disease. I hope that I’m wrong.

I’ll say it bluntly – regardless of your opinion towards abortion, COVID-19 is a far greater threat to human health than a closed abortion clinic. Hospitals need masks and gloves to handle COVID-19 cases more than abortion clinics need them to pull terminated children from the womb.

Banning elective healthcare procedures and prohibiting church services during a time of national emergency are tough decisions. But if they’re going to be enacted, they should be enacted in all circumstances – not just ones that suit a political agenda. I’m having a hard time believing that church meetings are dangerous for health and disease transmission but operating an abortion clinic is not.

Please click here to contact Governor Inslee and ask why elective abortions can still be performed while all other elective procedures have been canceled.

In the meantime, please continue to do everything you can to keep your families healthy and safe.

Thank you for your quick action!

SeXXX Education Rally Defies Fear and Brings Thousands Together to Protect Children

Just a few hours before thousands of parents and child-advocates were scheduled to rally in opposition to SB 5395, the SeXXX Education bill, outside the Washington State Capitol on Wednesday, Governor Jay Inslee announced a ban of assemblies of more than 250 people.

But word wasn’t delivered until after nearly 3,000 people had gathered on the Capitol Steps to ask the Governor to VETO this dangerous legislation.

Dozens of schools, churches, and events in Washington State have already responded to Governor Jay Inslee’s blockade ban on meetings of more than 250 people, and more certainly will by the weekend. And while we join others in advocating for hygienic habits and safe practices in regard to crowds and vulnerable populations, we cannot allow the fear to keep us from engaging in government at such a critical time.

Leftist politicians aren’t allowing the coronavirus to stop them from forcing bad legislation ahead while the public is distracted, and we can’t take a day off from fighting them on it.

The present majority-ruling party in our state government has given us no reason to trust their word or judgment on much, if anything. We most certainly can’t trust them to protect the innocence of our children!

The curriculum the OSPI intends to impose on our children, through the passage of HB5395, recommends that fourth graders learn the meanings of words like “clitoris” and “ejaculate.” Another teaches kindergarteners proper names and slang terms for female and male genitalia – along with their sexual function – and then has them use Post-It notes to identify those parts on fellow students.

This bill is dangerous, plain and simple.

If you haven’t already, please call the Governor’s office and ask the governor to VETO Senate Bill 5395. Thousands have already called, emailed, and shown up in person – please add your name to the list.

In the interest of full disclosure, Governor Inslee is widely expected to defy parents and sign this bill – despite outcry from concerned parents. If this happens, we will continue to fight through the implementation phase and ensure that Washington parents have all the information they need to keep their children safe from public school sexual indoctrination.

If you are concerned about this effort and want to support FPIW’s work to prevent leftist sexual ideas from being taught in public school classrooms, please consider pitching in to help us reach more parents. A few dollars makes a big difference.
