“Meet the Abortion Providers” and “Abortion the Inside Story” are companion documentaries that must be seen by anyone who wants to understand the issue of prenatal homicide. The films feature women and men who used to work in the abortion industry, but who have turned around and to defend life and women from abortion killing. Although the documentaries were produced in the late 80s and early 90s, they remain highly relevant in the post-Gosnell era.
Davis, who directed six abortion clinics in Alabama and Mississippi but later
became a pro-life activist, said that her boss, Dr. Tommy Tucker, was so greedy
that he fired his anesthesiologist, the registered nurses and the lab
technician. He trained Joy Davis to act
as an abortionist. “I never spent the
first day in medical school. I really
know nothing about medicine, other than what I had seen other doctors do, but I
started doing abortions.” Ms. Davis, who
was only trained as an ultrasound technician, explained that staff had watched
the doctors put women under anesthesia.
“We started putting patients asleep ourselves, and we had no idea what
we were doing.”
Pendley explained that it was she, not the abortionist, who prescribed the
drugs, called in the medications, and was the one on call when a woman started
hemorrhaging. She also handled
post-abortion calls from women who told her that they were experiencing physical or emotional problems;
the women were curtly told that their problems must have been preexisting and were
not the abortion center’s responsibility.
cannot tell you one thing that happens in an abortion clinic that is not a
lie,” says Carol Everett, who had an abortion and was an administrator of five
abortion facilities. Nita Whitten, who
also worked in a Dallas abortion center says, “It’s a lie when they tell you
that they’re doing it to help the woman, ‘cause they’re not … We were doing it
to get her money.” She explained that it was common to bring $15,000 a day to
McCorvey, the woman who challenged Texas’ pro-life law using the pseudonym “Jane
Roe” in Roe vs. Wade, is also a
former abortion worker who became pro-life.
Now she admits: “It was just a
racket… [The abortionist] was just doing
it for the money. He didn’t care about
Madsen, a former abortion worker from Sacramento, explained that many of the
clinic workers had had several abortions and had no confidence at all in the
abortionists they worked with, but had no trouble falsely reassuring their
prospective clients. “How stupid can you get?”
Deborah Henry, a Michigan abortion counselor, explained that she and her
coworkers lied about the pain women experience while undergoing abortions, and
provided no information whatsoever about the development of the preborn
former abortionist testified that the ultrasound machine is always hidden from
the pregnant mother, so she won’t see the image of her child and change her
mind (and so the abortionist won’t lose a sale). But how can a woman make an informed choice
about abortion when information is deliberately hidden from her?
pro-life movement has led the way in combating these abortion industry abuses. But it is an uphill battle against an
aggressive, well-funded opposition. Don’t
be fooled: abortion facility regulations are incredibly necessary. No one makes the case for them better than
abortion workers themselves.
