“Pro-life” Christian activist and COVID-19 denier Abby Johnson trolled Twitter with numbers of people dying from smoking (as COVID-19 deaths rise), defiant boasts about celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas (doctors are warning about large gatherings), lectures to people not to be afraid of life (taking logical precautions) and a call for churches to ignore COVID-19 safety.
I am not cancelling Thanksgiving or Christmas. Thanks. 👍🏻— Abby Johnson (@AbbyJohnson) November 17, 2020
Live a life where you are not scared of death. #eternallifematters— Abby Johnson (@AbbyJohnson) November 16, 2020
Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. Just an FYI. 🤷🏻♀️— Abby Johnson (@AbbyJohnson) November 16, 2020
It’s time for every church in America to defy lockdown, quarantine and any other orders related to this virus. People need to be in Church. They need to fellowship with other believers. They NEED hope. They need Jesus. Stop cowering to the government. Stand up and fight.— Abby Johnson (@AbbyJohnson) November 14, 2020
While Johnson trolled, nurse Lacie Gooch described her work trying to save people’s lives in the ICU of the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha:
We have 10 Covid units and one of them is just a place to go to pass away unfortunately. I have seen so many emergent intubations. I’ve seen people more sick than I’ve ever seen in my life.
