Now this is interesting. Fr. Joseph Fessio (founder and editor of Ignatius Press) wrote a piece on the Chinese coronavirus. Ironically, it has been responsible for a net GAIN of 173 lives in the US as of March 25th.

How can that be you ask? By just 2 states (Ohio and Texas) excluding abortions from their list of "essential care". (How any state could consider uninterrupted availability of in utero child killing an essential service is the purest evil.)

So, there will be at least some Americans who owe their lives to the virus.
