Part of being a former abortion clinic worker is learning how to deal with your past sin.
It's my theory that one of the big reasons clinics have shut down - and will continue to shut down - is that former abortion workers have spoken out about their experiences in public and worked to testify against their former employers.
ISIS may be a perversion of Islam, but Islamic it is, just as Christian beliefs about the sanctity of the unborn child explain why some Christian fundamentalists attack abortion clinics and doctors.
Life is sacred to me on all levels. Abortion does not compute with my philosophy.
The only thing that will keep an abortion worker in the industry longer is a pro-lifer who condemns them.
The abortion industry and their workers are under unique pressure and constantly in the spotlight because abortion is so controversial, and people on both sides are considerably passionate. This isn't a typical nine-to-five job. It's on a whole other level of intensity.

One of the strangest unintended consequences of abortion, of legalized abortion, was that it drives the crime rate down because what abortion really was, was a mechanism for which fewer unwanted children could be born.
However much I dislike the idea of abortion, you should not criminalize a woman who, in very difficult circumstances, makes that choice.
Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration's support of abortion rights, Obama shows his lack of empathy for society's most powerless.
You can't reconcile being pro-life on abortion and pro-death on the death penalty.
The abortion facility in Texas where I worked for eight years closed after enough workers like me left. They closed because I finally spoke out against the terrible things I saw, the deceit I participated in, and the unsanitary practices common to many abortion facilities.
The corporate right fires up the religious right against gay marriage and abortion and uses their votes to push their deregulation and tax cuts for the rich. It's an old trick. The House of Saud has the same arrangement with the Mullahs in Saudi Arabia.
A lot of attention has been going to social values - abortion, gay rights, other divisive issues - but economic values are equally important.
I did have some secret abortions myself, which I repented from when I was born again in 1983. I drank the abortion Kool-Aid temporarily because I thought it was the answer.
