Search: reformed abortionists

Two people came searching for "Ex-Abortion Providers testimonies"

This seems a good time to start with mention of the Society of Centurions, an organization originally founded in Eastern Europe to help with the emotional and spiritual recovery of former abortion workers. The Society's name is a reference to the Centurion in the Bible, who helped to crucify Christ. When Christ died, this soldier fell to his knees, dropped his sword, and cried, "Truly this was an innocent man." The Centurions have recognized the innocence of their unborn victims and dropped their weapons.

Here are some former abortion workers who have left the business and spoken out about why:

  • Dr. Paul Jarrett is unusual in that his awakening came early in his abortion career.

  • Dina Madsen worked in abortion during the early 1990s.

  • Dr. Anthony Levatino had a moral and spiritual awakening when his daughter was struck and killed by a car.

  • Kathy Sparks worked phones, prep, and other areas of abortion practice.

  • Carol Everett operated the Dallas abortion mill where Shari Graham was mortally wounded in her safe, legal abortion.

  • Dr. David Brewer was troubled at first by abortion, then grew calloused.

  • Deobrah Henry was befriended by a prolifer who led her out of the business.

  • Dr. Beverly McMillan had opened the first abortion clinic in Mississippi. A simple question by a new staff member started her turn-around.

  • Joan Appleton is now active with the Society of Centurions.

  • Joy Davis, while working for abortionist Tommy Tucker, fought in vain to save the life of Angela Hall.

  • Dr. McArthur Hill began his abortion career in New York in 1971.

  • Judith Fetrow was uncomfortable with abortion when she worked at Planned Parenthood, but her first attempt to leave was tripped up by a nasty prolifer.

  • Dr. Joseph Randall, paradoxically, became involved in later abortions just as he was also exploring Christianity.

  • Dr. Yvonne Moore worked for two years as an abortionist.

  • Luhra Tivis was sent by a temp agency to work for George Tiller in Wichita.

  • Brenda Pratt Schaffer was sent by a nursing agency to assist Martin Haskell in his late-abortion business.

  • Norma McCorvy, the "Jane Roe" of Roe vs. Wade, was working at a Dallas area abortion facility when Operation Rescue moved in next door.

  • Kirsten Breedlove worked at the same abortion facility as Norma McCorvey.

    Bernard N. Nathanson told his story in The Hand of God: A Journey from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind.

    Booklist says:
    Nathanson cofounded the pro-choice organization NARAL in 1969 and during 1971-72 made New York's Center for Reproductive and Sexual Health the best U.S. abortion clinic--accomplishments at the forefront of the push to make abortion commonplace. Before then, he had had a frustrating life distinguished by a love-hate relationship of epic proportions with his father. The senior Nathanson was a cold husband, a cruelly domineering parent, and a Jew who denigrated Judaism yet raised his son in it; but he was a conscientious physician faithful to the Hippocratic oath with its hard line against abortion. His son followed his example in most things, only rebelling by discarding religion and championing abortion. During the 1970s, Nathanson changed, becoming an important voice against abortion and assisted suicide and fetal tissue experimentation, too. At the end of his memoir cum apologia, he imparts that he hopes to be received into the Roman Catholic Church. Thanks to a wide-ranging vocabulary and a flare for cadenced prose, he makes most of his testimony lively and enthralling reading.

    Funny, Nathanson slipped my mind entirely!
