Speaking at the Republican National Convention last night, former Planned Parenthood employee, Abby Johnson, explains why she left the abortion industry.
The Daily Caller provides a partial transcript of what she said:
“My supervisor assigned me a new quota to meet… an abortion quota,” she said. “I was expected to sell double the abortions performed the previous year. When I pushed back, underscoring Planned Parenthood’s public facing goal of decreasing abortions, I was reprimanded and told abortion is how we make our money.”
“But the tipping point came a month later when a physician asked me to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion,” she continued. “Nothing prepared me for what I saw on the screen. An unborn baby fighting back, desperate to move away from the suction.”
Johnson said that she will “never forget” the doctor joking, “Beam me up, Scotty.”
Abby now works for a pro-life organization.
A disturbing video from 1984, entitled the Silent Scream, shows how a baby in its first trimester tries to pull away from a high speed suction tube that will rip it apart. Prior to the abortion, the baby was peacefully sucking her thumb.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who narrates the video, left the abortion industry because of what he was seeing.
Research shows that babies in the womb are feeling pain as early as 20 weeks. But because doctors didn’t believe this, they were operating on premature babies without anaesthesia. The following article explains how one man, Kanwaljeet Anand, fought to change this. READ: The First Ache
