Alabama Dr. Yashica Robinson helps women through menopause and childbirth. She provides routine OB-GYN services such as pap smears and cancer screenings.
But when her name is in the news, it typically is because of her part-time work aborting unborn babies.
Bustle recently highlighted her work as an abortionist at the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives. Because she will help women both give birth and abort their babies, Robinson is hailed as a heroine of the pro-abortion left.
“Unlike many health care professionals who find themselves having to choose between providing abortions and other types of gynecological health care, Robinson juggles both, along with numerous other responsibilities,” according to the report.
In addition to doing abortions, she also works at two hospitals and runs her own OB-GYN practice, which another news outlet described as having lilac-colored walls and photos of cute, sleepy newborns.
Robinson complained about the “stigma” she and other abortionists face for their work.
Here’s more from the piece:
She adds that she must also take on law enforcement and city officials who are reluctant to challenge anti-choice protesters due to lawsuit threats. Robinson says her colleagues at the hospitals she works at often second-guess her decision to perform abortions, while staff morale at her abortion clinic can be low in the face of anti-abortion legislation.
Despite all of these hurdles, however, Robinson says that she will continue to do this work because it is vital to her local community.

“Really independent providers are the ones on the frontlines, fighting to make abortion available to patients,” Robinson adds. “We’re the ones that are putting our names out there and putting our necks on the line to make sure that the clinics remain viable. … Despite the fact that I don’t have a lot of support, and that it’s not one of the most glamorous parts of the work that I do, it’s still very rewarding because I know how essential it is.”
Aborting unborn babies is not essential, but Robinson has no plans of giving it up.
Ironically, she said it is people who encouraged her when she became pregnant in high school and chose life for her unborn baby that inspire her abortion work.
“I had someone that was very positive in my life, and encouraged me and told me that that didn’t have to change my whole life,” Robinson said. “So I decided that I wanted to be that somebody for another young lady in my shoes.”
Maybe she is doing that for some young women by helping them through their pregnancies and childbirth at her OB-GYN practice, but her abortion practice is not helping women. It only kills their children and then abandons them to deal with the grief and pain afterward.
