No abortions in Texas unless the mother's life is in danger, Texas attorney general says as coronavirus spreads

They are using it as a power play but at the same time how does this fall under urgent or emergency surgery? I’m an abortion rights person but at the same time if you’re getting accidentally knocked up during a major viral outbreak you’re clearly not using your fucking brain. If the choice is PPE for open heart surgery to save a 28 year old or using it for an abortion on a 19 year old whose boyfriend said he would pull out in time the heart surgery should take priority. There is an unlimited number of scenarios where some life saving surgery would take precedent over an abortion in my mind while there is a shortage of needed medical equipment. Never mind the equipment needed for dealing with covid-19 cases.
