Woman Who Ran Abortion Clinic for 27 Years Sold It to “Spend More Time With My Grandchildren”

For almost 30 years, Gloria Gray ran an Alabama abortion facility that destroyed the lives of countless women’s children and grandchildren.

Her facility, the West Alabama Women’s Center in Tuscaloosa, does more than half of all abortions in Alabama, according to Mother Jones. There, unborn babies are killed up to 22 weeks of pregnancy.

But this year, Gray retired and sold her abortion facility to a younger abortion activist. She told the pro-abortion news outlet that she wants to spend more time with her grandchildren.

“I was turning 70 years old,” she said. “I wanted to enjoy my grandchildren, I wanted to travel a bit, I wanted to [visit] my son—those were my main reasons for wanting someone else that I knew could keep the clinic open and would go in and run it well.”

According to the report, Gray bought the abortion facility in 1993. Since then, it is not clear how many unborn babies were aborted at her facility – likely tens of thousands – or how much money she made off them. Though her grandchildren matter to her, apparently other people’s grandchildren did not.

Gray said pro-life lawmakers’ efforts to protect unborn babies stressed her out, as did local community members’ condemnation of her abortion practice.

“I did get tired, constantly being told what an evil person I was for doing what I did,” Gray said.

She recently sold her abortion facility to the Yellowhammer Fund, a pro-abortion organization that raises money to help women pay for their abortions and abortion-related expenses, The Birmingham News reports.

Amanda Reyes, who founded Yellowhammer, said she plans to begin offering other, non-abortion services at the facility in the future, including gynecological care, hormone therapy for transgender patients, and midwife and doula services, according to the report.

“This gives us the chance to try to rework the health care system and provide a model for what health care in this country should look like,” Reyes said. “I think that running this clinic and having this knowledge about how the health care system works and using that to our community’s advantage will help us create some really great policy ideas, too.”

Lumping actual health care services in with abortions also furthers their mission to equate the killing of unborn babies with real, life-saving health care. In truth, abortions are not “essential” or life-saving. They destroy the lives of unique human beings, and they are the opposite of health care.

Reyes said she wants to take over Grey’s work because abortions help the local community.

“It’s a really great opportunity for all of us to be able to take care of our community,” she said. “We have been given the opportunity to really invest in our communities.”

But this claim is just as absurd as the notion that abortions are health care. Abortions damage entire families and communities. They do not just destroy unborn babies’ lives, they also can cause emotional and psychological harm to mothers, fathers, siblings and grandparents, friends and neighbors. Each abortion is an irreplaceable life lost – someone’s child, someone’s grandchild, someone’s sibling or friend. Communities, families and individuals would be better off if people like Grey and Reyes focused their efforts on helping mothers and babies in difficult circumstances, rather than selling abortions.
