An abortion chain is taking advantage of the disaster caused by Hurricane Harvey by collecting donations for free abortions for pregnant women in Houston. Whole Women’s Health (a notorious abortion chain in Texas), known for its not-so-stellar facilities, made the announcement as Harvey victims were in the process of life-saving rescues and close brushes with death.
WWH announced: “…we’re providing no-cost abortions for those affected by Hurricane Harvey,” and then asked others to pay for these abortions. The Austin-based Lilith Fund, a partner of NARAL, is also helping to fund WWH abortions. NARAL asked for donations to the Fund, perpetuating the inner circle of Big Abortion that passes around hard-earned dollars to end the lives of tiny children.
On Facebook, some Americans responded to the irony of the abortion industry responding to a life-threatening situation by threatening to take more human lives.
But being the “lowest of the low” is something the abortion industry is known for. The industry is suggesting that the best solution for a pregnant mother who has just endured Harvey is to take away that same survival from her child and to urge others to fund more death. Similarly, after Hurricane Sandy battered a more northern area of the East Coast in 2012, a Virginia abortion facility bragged about its refusal to appropriately care for women or to stop taking children’s lives through abortion while its building was still flooded.
Of the 55,287 abortions committed in Texas in 2015, 34,374 (or 62%) were on minority women, demonstrating that abortion targets Texas’ Black and Hispanic populations. However, Lilith Fund continues to claim that abortion is a solution for minorities. Even after minority families survived the devastation of one of the worst hurricanes in Texas history, Lilith, NARAL, and WWH insisted that the first order of business for pregnant women who could no longer afford what they needed in life was to get an abortion…stat.
WWH operates five abortion facilities across the United States: in Texas, Minnesota, Illinois and Maryland, with at least one facility committing abortion on children up to 24 weeks — when some children are viable. Whole Women’s Health recently won an injunction against a new Texas law banning the gruesome “dismemberment abortion procedure” known as dilation and evacuation or D&E. On Facebook, WWH announced they were “elated” that Judge Lee Yeakel ruled in their favor and that their abortionists could continue to commit D&E abortions in Texas.

In 2015, Texas reported there were 4,289 D&E abortions performed statewide. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy quoted abortionist Leroy Carhart in his explanation of a D&E abortion:
The fetus, in many cases, dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn from limb from limb. The fetus can be alive at the beginning of the dismemberment process and can survive for a time while its limbs are being torn off.
Dr. Carhart agreed that “[w]hen you pull out a piece of the fetus, let’s say, an arm or a leg and remove that, at the time just prior to removal of the portion of the fetus, … the fetus [is] alive.” Dr. Carhart has observed fetal heartbeat via ultrasound with “extensive parts of the fetus removed,” and testified that mere dismemberment of a limb does not always cause death because he knows of a physician who removed the arm of a fetus only to have the fetus go on to be born “as a living child with one arm.”
The sad reality is that there is a great need for help and resources in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and now, Hurricane Irma. Pregnant women facing a natural disaster or any other crisis should not be manipulated by an industry who claims more dead babies is the answer.
That is why it is more important than ever for pro-lifers to show their support for Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) and to direct women in need to their doors. If you or a pregnant mother you know needs resources, medical care, and help, reach out to Save the Storks, Stand Up Girl, Option Line, or Pregnancy Line. Some of these organizations have 24-hour hotlines, online chat options, or texting ability, and can help connect you with trained counselors and local resources — including necessary medical help from doctors who can care for a mother and her child. You can also contact Human Coalition through email or at 214-295-7301, as they have people on the ground in Texas. Pregnancy Line is available to help a mother find real help in the midst of crisis. You can text “LINE” to 313131 or call (866) 889-6626.
