"As at other New York hospitals, the surge of new patients with Covid-19 flattened this past week. But the intensive care unit at the Brooklyn hospital had to keep expanding, to nearly three times its original size, and deaths remained high. Nearly 90 patients confirmed or suspected to have the virus had succumbed since March 1. From Monday to Friday last week alone, 30 died. Five staff members have also died. The crisis is not over, Dr. Byer and other physicians warned.
"But he is grateful: So far, not one mother or baby has been lost."
This is a scary time for all of us, but particularly for the most vulnerable, including pregnant and parenting women, the poor and working poor, and people of color. Read on to learn more, and be inspired by those on the medical front lines saving lives — and bringing little lives into the outside world.
In a hospital at the center of the crisis, nearly 200 babies have arrived since March. Some pregnant women have fallen extremely ill, but doctors are winning battles for their lives and their children’s.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam — who is best known for being exposed donning blackface, on top of his support for neonatal infanticide when a baby survives being aborted — sneaked through an extreme abortion bill on Good Friday that rolled back protection measures for women seeking abortions. Ironically, Northam declared "No more will legislators in Richmond — most of whom are men — be telling women what they should and should not be doing with their bodies."
"If he really believed this, then step aside for a woman to run for every office in the land," said FFL President Serrin M. Foster, who earlier condemned the governor's previous actions (www.feministsforlife.org/kittens-get-care-babies-left-to-die-and-women-left-to-cry-in-northams-world). "The fact is, both women and men worked for these legal protections for women, and both girls and boys are aborted. This action means equal lack of protection under the law. Women deserve better," added Foster, who created the Women Deserve Better® campaign and whose FFL slogan is widely repeated. "The fact that he did this on a day that many Americans solemnly commemorate is an additional slap in the face to pro-lifers, many of whom are Christian. It is both revealing in his contempt for Virginia citizens and despicable any day of the week. We hope he can see the error of his ways, especially as a doctor. We would welcome him."
