Former Gosnell Abortion Worker is Finding God, Becoming Pro-Life
Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt

The former employee of the late-term abortion clinic Kermit Gosnell ran saw the worst of the worst in the abortion industry.

From dilapidated conditions, to late-term abortions and from infanticide of babies born alive to the killing and injuring of patients, the employees at the Philadelphia-based abortion business likely have a significant amount of emotional distress and mental and spiritual health issues they are dealing with now.

But Abby Johnson, herself a former director of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic who is now a Christian and pro-life, says a former Gosnell worker is rediscovering a relationship with God and may be converting to the pro-life perspective.

“For many months, we have been praying for Kermit Gosnell and all of the men and women who worked in his facility. We prayed for them by name. We reached out to them many times. We had not received any response…until last week,” Johnson says.

The found of the pro-life ministry And Then There Were None, which reaches out to current and former abortion clinic workers, adds: “We are so excited to tell you that we are now working with one of Gosnell’s former workers! We are not giving out personal information at this time, but we wanted all of you to know so you can be praying.”

About the specific Gosnell employee, Johnson says: “We know that her road to healing will be a long one. Many in the pro-life movement will reject her because of her work in Gosnell’s clinic. But we are certain that God is thrilled that one of His children has come back to Him…and we know all of you are, too!”


“I wanted to share something with you that she told me when we first talked,” Johnson continues. “She said, “When the police came to arrest me, I was filled with a peace that I had never experienced before. I knew that it was over. I knew that I no longer had to work with that man ever again. I knew I would finally be free.” This woman has been on a long journey…out of Gosnell’s clinic…rediscovering Christ…now working with us.”

“We are asking that you pray for this woman. Please pray for her family. She is eager to share her story with the pro-life community…and I can tell you that it is a beautiful story of redemption. We will continue to keep you updated,” Johnson concludes.

Johnson’s update comes a day after another former Gosnell employee, who worked at the House of Horrors abortion clinic was sentenced to house arrest.

Something hit me the other day. We see stories like this from time to time. But you’ll never see a pro-life person becoming pro-abortion. Kind of interesting.

I believe many moderately (usually younger) “pro-life” people become pro abortion after they get themselves or their girlfriend pregnant and then they get an abortion.

Afterwards, they spend the rest of their life rationalizing it and showing anger towards that point out the sin of it.

Anyone in the pro-life movement that rejects her, isn't truly pro-life IMO. (Maybe that's why we still have abortion.) Our Lady of Mount Carmel, please pray for the end of abortion!

Sadly, I know, and know of, people both public and private, who have gone from pro-life to pro-abort.

Read these words,from an American politician, and try to guess who it was:

“While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life.

Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized – the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old.”

It was a August 3, 1971 letter to a constituent, from Ted Kennedy. And those were no mere words. Kennedy backed them up. In a little-noticed vote in April 1976, he favored a joint Senate resolution to define personhood as beginning at conception.

On a personal level, I had a friend who was a good Catholic college girl pro-life activist. She went on a humanitarian mission with a refugee-aid group in the Southwest Pacific to help exiles fleeing from Vietnam; while on mission, got pregnant (from what? A rape? A stupid, thoughtless one-off act? An affair she thought was love? She never told us).

She took time off to go to Australia and abort the baby, and wrote a letter to all her friends which told us NOTHING, really, except that she had learned to affirm herself as a worthy person, and therefore, as a good-hearted individual, anything she decided to do was very probably the best thing under the circumstances.

What rot. But she believed it. Or at least, she wanted US to believe it.

So it goes both ways. Some consciences ripen. Some rot.

Or maybe she was trying to convince herself to believe it.

Yes, RF, surely she was trying to fool herself as well.

It’s amazing that she sent this pages-long form letter to all of her friends which said, basically, nothing. Nothing but this self-affirmation crap. And why did she send it to us?? If she hadn’t, we’d never have known about the abortion. It would have been her safe silent secret forever.

I suspect she fell into the hands of some damned (I mean damned) “counselor” who filled her with this poison about your right to choose your own right and wrong, and your right to affirm this in public because it pertains to your autonomy, which you have a right to be proud of, and blah-blah-blah.

It’s like she got it out of a Women’s Inner Journey Workbook. One, decide to get the abortion. Two, start journaling our inner/outer experience. Three, stay in a nice resort for a week, because you deserve it. Four, (have a couple drinks and) say goodbye to your baby’s spirit, which you have mercifully released from this physical plane. Five, strengthen your self-affirmation by writing to all your friends. You may give them the moral maturity and solidarity to do the same!

(A parody of the Holistic Women’s Wellness schtick, if you’ve never really encountered it.)

Lies all through from the Father of Lies, a murderer from the beginning.
