Physician Assistant Says Responding to Coronavirus with Social Distancing is ‘Pro-Life’

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.

You can listen to Life Chat on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Play, or using the player in the side bar.

Illinois Right to Life Action Just Launched A Pro-Life Podcast

Friends –

I am so excited to share that earlier this week, we launched the first episode of Life Chat podcast. We hope this will be just one more way that our organization can connect with, educate, and engage the pro-life people of Illinois. As the 2020 election cycle approaches, it’s more important now than ever before to keep a close eye on our state legislature in Springfield, while starting productive, compassionate conversations about abortion within our personal networks and communities back at home. This podcast is just one of the numerous projects we’re launching this month to help you do exactly these things!

Episode one of Life Chat consists of a general introduction to our goals and plans for the podcast, as well as an analysis that dives deep into SB 25, the Reproductive Healthcare Act, which passed through our state legislature back in May. In the future, we hope to conduct interviews and have purposeful conversations with some of the solid pro-life people who are most engaged in this issue, both in Illinois and nationwide!

You can listen to Life Chat on iTunes here, on Spotify here, and on Google Play here.

We hope you enjoy!
