Abortion Doc Apologizes for Assuming Pro-Life People are Jerks

If you are ever unsure about the work we are doing, you can now feel confident that it works!  I received an email from a current abortionist this week. He received one our ATTWN fliers from a prayer volunteer.  Here is his first contact to me.

“Pro-lifers, anti-choice, please just admit you dislike women already will you? There is a big pink elephant here, though. I do wonder if you would understand.

As an OB/GYN I was trained to perform the procedure involved with a pregnancy termination.The procedure is called a D&C.As well as late-term abortions. Or would you know about that Abby? Women should not be forced to be a “baby factory” as many of us have heard it termed. Guilt trips? Those flyers don’t help.”

I responded and told him that our goal was to help people leave the abortion industry through practical help, compassion and healing.  I also explained that our fliers were indeed working.  I told him that we have helped FOURTY-FOUR workers find help after leaving the abortion industry.  I wasn’t sure at the time if he was a current abortionist…then I got his response.  Warning: there is graphic language in this email response.

“44? Well, what do you know. Sorry Abby, in my eyes, all pro-life crowd are one in the same. We get tired of their approach.

While you’re at it, tell the crew at “Abolish Human Abortion”  to cut the sh*t too. Anyone who likes them, hates, extremely hates each and every person that goes into a clinic; down on the women, huh? Yes! They proudly tell you who they are with..and I have never met a more arrogant bunch of sh*t talkers who think they know everything and anything about everyone. “WE’RE BETTER THAN YOU!”, one shouted. Can’t anyone go to work in peace? You can’t without being beat up with words. If one seriously thinks that helps anyone, they’re out of their flipping minds.  If they’re not shouting at you, they do other things, no sane person would do, but it’s their “right” to protest. Need I say the word “murderer” too? Nice Christians. They call themselves “Christian” and in the name of their God..they call people names?  Need I go any further? It’s all hatred! Go away and everything will be just fine. And yes, I do throw the baby out with the bathwater.”

My response was simple.  I explained that we would never treat him or any other worker or woman with disrespect .  I told him that our goal was to bring about conversion through love and help.  We do NOT think we are “better” than anyone.  We are ALL sinners, in need of compassion and care.  His next response shocked me…and showed me that, yes, the fliers DO work.



“Well then that’s rare & it’s not seen much.

Also, I have to apologize to you. It was suggested I apologize. I was attempting, out of anger to “chew up” someone, as I received one of your flyers & I was sick of it. That was rather immature. I’m sorry.”

Wow!  A genuine apology.  The conversation is ongoing and we are fervently praying for this man.  Please keep him in your prayers!!  And PLEASE keep sending the fliers into the abortion clinics!!
