LifeSiteNews features the testimony of Carol Everett, a former abortion clinic owner who now works to stop abortion and help men and women who have been hurt by abortion.
At a recent luncheon hosted by United Methodist pro-life ministry Lifewatch, Everett provided a glimpse inside the abortion industry:
In order to sell as many abortions as possible the telephone "counselors" at Everett's clinics were trained to lead distraught women callers to think that there is only one solution to their unwanted pregnancy, and then to assure women that their child is only a "blob of tissue" and that the procedure itself will be basically painless.
"I cannot tell you one thing that happens in an abortion clinic that is not a lie."
You can read Everett's story, and how she got out of the abortion industry at Priests for Life.
I remember hearing a speech on Focus on the Family given by Everett back in the mid-1990s where she told this story--and more. At the time I heard this, I had recently changed from being pro-abortion to pro-life, so it was particularly impactful to me to learn some more of the disturbing details of what I had been supporting.
South Dakotans will get a chance to vote for or against abortion this November with Initiated Measure 11, a pro-life measure brought by over 46,000 petition signatures from the people of South Dakota to end 98% of the abortions performed in the state.
If you are a South Dakotan, what will you choose to uphold on November 4: life or death?
