Well, it doesn’t need to be said that we are living in unprecedented times.
As the number of Coronavirus cases continues to rise in the U.S. and politicians acknowledge a heightened concern that American healthcare systems could be overloaded in as little as two weeks, people across the country are entering into a state of self-quarantine that many are calling “social distancing.”
At Illinois Right to Life, we recognize this time for self-quarantine means that people will be consuming media at a pointedly high rate. With very little else to do, consumers will be turning to Netflix, video games, and yes, you guessed it – pornography – to fill their empty time.
We’ve decided to respond by rolling out a new Life Chat episode every day for the next two weeks. Our goal is to create content during this time that pro-lifers can feel *good* about consuming. So, from today until Monday, March 30th, we’ll be posting a brand new interview with a different pro-lifer every single day.
Today’s first episode hits the issue right on the nose: a Chicago PA, Monica Herron, spoke with me about coronavirus – what makes it different from other viruses, why we need to respond swiftly, and why social distancing is a pro-life response to the urgent moment at hand.
