“It’s immoral to use the declaration of a global pandemic to turn people who need abortions into pawns for cheap political points,” Yamani Hernandez, executive director of the National Network of Abortion Funds, said Thursday in a statement. “In a moment when legislators need to turn towards science and data to stem the tide of a public health crisis that threatens the most vulnerable among us, anti-abortion extremists are instead using fear to opportunistically sneak through ideologically cruel and medically unsound restrictions.”

Kelsey Ryland, director of federal strategies for All* Above All, called Trump’s decision to delay approval of the coronavirus funding package an “unconscionable, shameful low.”
