As COVID-19 restrictions make it more difficult to procure abortions, Democrats are moving to make the killing of children in the womb as available as possible. The Biden administration’s FDA has just made abortion pills available via mail without the requirement for in-person consultations or medical provision. Also this week, Hawaii’s Democratic Gov. David Ige signed House Bill 576, which permits Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) to prescribe abortion pills as well as perform suction aspiration abortions on “non-viable” fetuses — those that are too young to survive outside the womb.
Twelve other states already permit some nurses to perform or prescribe first-trimester abortions, including Vermont, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, California, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. This move comes not due to new medical information — Hawaii restricted the practice of abortion to doctors prior to Monday — but rather because there is a shortage of physicians willing to commit abortions, and thus abortion is virtually inaccessible on many of the Hawaiian islands.
Those seeking abortions often fly to Honolulu, Hawaii’s capital on the island of Oahu, where most of the abortionists live and work. Abortions can be procured on the island of Hawai’i, but only in Hilo on the northeastern side.
