Abortion Facility Worker Quits Job after Seeing the Bodies of Aborted Children

On December 21, 2015, Abby Johnson and her group And Then There Were None sponsored a webcast in which former abortion center workers shared their experiences working in the abortion industry. One of the workers who told her story was Jackie, who worked in a private abortion clinic in Austin, Texas. At first, her duties consisted only of working at the reception desk and checking patients in and out. Then she was moved to the pathology lab, where the bodies of aborted babies were taken to be examined. Jackie describes what she saw there: I got selected to move to the pathology lab, and for anyone who doesn’t know what that is, that is the lab in the clinic that basically inventories the body parts of the fetus that comes out of the woman. And, the first part of that job is, as I said, inventorying the parts; and the second also involves inventorying the parts to determine if they are intact enough to be harvested and sold. And then the third part is doing a checklist, such as the head, the arms, the torso, the legs, and you send it to the doctor to let him know that the abortion was complete. Seeing the mutilated body parts of aborted children took its toll on Jackie. Exposed to the gruesome reality of abortion, her illusions were quickly stripped away: So that’s where I ended up, I trained in that lab three, almost four days before I had a very harsh realization that everything I believed about the abortion industry was wrong. So about three days into it I had...

Texas Officials Raid Planned Parenthood Businesses

Investigators from the state of Texas served subpoenas at three Planned Parenthood facilities to determine whether their employees are guilty of defrauding the state’s Medicaid program, according to media reports. Officials from the Office of Inspector General walked into Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas this morning and demanded the offices turn over employee and patient records for inspection, Planned Parenthood officials said. The inspectors did not publicly disclose the purpose of their visit, and an official with the state’s Health and Human Services Commission told local media only that they were there for “oversight.” But some familiar with the investigation told media outlets that the inspectors were investigating charges that the facilities illegally used Medicaid money to fund abortions. “This has been a day that I have been waiting for,” Abby Johnson, the former manager of a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas, told LifeSiteNews. Inspectors reportedly asked for medical forms from recent patients to determine the reason for their visits, before comparing those records to Planned Parenthood’s invoices to Medicaid. “The breadth and depth of what was requested this morning was unprecedented,” Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’ vice president for community affairs, Sarah Wheat, told the Austin Statesman. The move comes just three days after HHSC officials announced plans for Texas to remove Planned Parenthood from its Medicaid program. A letter written Monday by Inspector General Stuart Bowen Jr. cited undercover video recordings by the Center for Medical Progress that show Planned Parenthood agreeing to alter its abortion technique to maximize the number of body parts harvested and to receive payments. The inspector also...

Missing 911 Call: Ambulance Rushes Sobbing Patient from Florida Abortion Shop (2014)

Video shot by pro-life activists on the scene at the Florida Women’s Center abortion facility in Jacksonville, shows dramatic footage of a sobbing abortion patient being loaded into an ambulance while the injured patient’s friend stood nearby crying and distraught. The incident occurred on September 4, 2014, at an abortion business owned and operated by abortionist Patrick J. Kelly. Just five weeks before, state inspectors cited him – ironically – for failing to provide his staff with adequate training in medical emergencies. “Given the demeanor of everyone in that video, that patient’s injuries appeared to be quite serious. We don’t know just how serious or if she even survived,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Every medical emergency we are able to document represents dozens more that happen outside the presence of pro-life activists. Whatever happened to the woman in the video, has probably happened to others.” Kelly owns, operates, and acts as the administrator for the Florida Women’s Center according to three deficiency reports obtained by Operation Rescue. The reports were based on facility inspections that took place between April 10, 2009, and July 29, 2014. In fact, Kelly was cited in all three deficiency reports for failing to provide adequate training for his staff in the areas of safety, infection control, and incident reporting. During a 2011 inspection, Kelly made absurd excuses for not properly training his staff in incident reporting procedures, raising questions about whether incidents were ever reported. “Physician revealed that the facility has not had any incidents to report therefore there was no need for staff training,” an inspector noted. During a 2014...

Abby Johnson, Former PP Director: ‘Sorry Folks. Contraception Access Increases Abortions. And Here’s the Proof.’

Every time I post something on my Facebook about abortion, there will inevitably be someone who makes a comment that says something like this, “Don’t women know how to use birth control these days? What is wrong with them? With so many birth control options these days, no one should ever have an abortion.” I supposed that is a really common misconception…that birth control reduces the abortion rate. But is that true? Look at this quote from Ann Furedi, the former director of British Pregnancy Advisory Service, Britain’s largest abortion provider: “Often, arguments for increased access to contraception and for new contraceptive technologies are built on the assumption that these developments will bring down the abortion rate. The anti-choice movement counter that this does not seem to be the case in practice. Arguably they are right. Access to effective contraception creates an expectation that women can control their fertility and plan their families. Given that expectation, women may be less willing to compromise their plans for the future.” In the past, many women reluctantly accepted that an unplanned pregnancy would lead to maternity. Unwanted pregnancies were dutifully, if resentfully, carried to term. In days when sex was expected to carry the risk of pregnancy, an unwanted child was a chance a woman took. Today, we expect sex to be free from that risk and unplanned maternity is not a price we are prepared to pay. It is clear that women cannot manage their fertility by means of contraception alone. Contraception lets couples down. A recent survey of more than 2000 women requesting abortions at clinics run by BPAS, Britain’s...
