Much of the news this summer concerned what can legally take place outside an abortion clinic: How close can sidewalk counselors stand to a clinic entrance, can they approach abortion-vulnerable women with literature, how far police can go to prevent pro-lifers from offering real choices to women.
But what happens inside an abortion clinic goes unnoticed every day, and every day, thousands of babies lose their lives.
On Radio Maria’s “Gospel of Life” Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 6 p.m. ET, Janet Morana will take listeners inside one of these legal killing centers as she speaks to Catherine Adair, a former worker in the same Boston Planned Parenthood clinic that was at the center of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding clinic access.
Catherine was a young woman when she had an abortion. The experience was so traumatizing that she threw herself in the world of pro-choice feminism in order to justify what she had done. She went to work for Planned Parenthood, at the largest abortion clinic in New England. There she was part of every aspect of the abortion business, including counseling and medical assistance.
After witnessing the aftermath of a second-trimester abortion, she could no longer believe the lie that abortion was not killing. She is now a prolife activist and mother of five children.
Her testimony will convince anyone still on the fence that abortion has nothing to do with health care, and is harmful to women and deadly for their children.
Also joining Janet will be Bryan Kemper, Priests for Life’s Youth Outreach Director. Bryan was in the courtroom last week when a decision that led to the closing of a late-term abortion clinic in Ohio was rendered.
Late-term abortionist Martin Haskell’s Lebanon Road Surgery Center in Sharonville, Ohio will no longer perform abortions after being unable to obtain a patient transfer agreement with a local hospital. Last week a judge upheld the enforcement of the state law.
An attorney for abortion clinic owner Martin Haskell has announced that Haskell will not appeal the judge’s decision and as of this week, abortions will no longer be performed in Sharonville. Unfortunately, women likely will be referred to another of Haskell’s clinics near Dayton.
“The man who made partial-birth abortion infamous is now down to one clinic,” said Bryan. “Priests for Life Youth Outreach has a presence at Haskell’s one remaining abortion mill in Kettering, Ohio, and will be ramping up our ministry there. We have invited local priests and clergy to join us and will be there up to three times a week.”
