    Mary was pressured into three abortions by her abusive boyfriend and an abortion “counselor.” Her testimonial is recorded in the book, “Giving Sorrow Words: Women’s Stories of Grief after Abortion.” The first time Mary became pregnant, she was happy and wanted to keep the baby. But when she told her boyfriend, he “flew into a terrifying rage.” She says she “wept, begged and cajoled” but he demanded that she have an abortion. She agreed to go to an abortion facility and speak to a “counselor” there. She says the middle-aged counselor “seemed so motherly and sympathetic at first.” Mary hoped...

    When Carol St. Amour became pregnant the first time, she wanted to keep her baby, but her boyfriend Jim made it clear he wanted her to have an abortion. He threatened to leave her if she gave birth. In the book “Life Stories,” St. Amour shared her story of forced abortion and regret. St. Amour described herself at the time as a “pro-choice feminist,” but she didn’t want to raise her baby without a father. She said, “He stated he did not want me to have the baby, and that if I did, he’d leave me. I was crushed. I...

    In a book of stories of men and women hurt by abortion, Robin Buckner describes being pressured into an abortion by her boyfriend and workers at Planned Parenthood. She describes the Planned Parenthood facility by saying, “It was cold, the staff was calloused and used high-pressure tactics.” She says they took her money immediately, “even before they got any information regarding my body or health.” Before her abortion, Buckner was shown a three- to four-minute “educational” video. She says the video didn’t prepare her for the trauma of the abortion or its aftermath: I was treated like a lab rat....

    Shortly after Roe v. Wade legalized abortion throughout the United States, a nurse watched helplessly as a baby born alive during a botched abortion struggled to live. In an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer1, a nurse named Linda told her story. She withheld her last name, perhaps fearing retaliation from the hospital where she worked. In one ward of the hospital, abortionists committed saline abortions. In a saline abortion procedure, caustic saline solution was injected into the mother’s womb. The saline solution burned the baby’s skin and poisoned him or her. Labor would begin, usually within 12 hours, and the...

    In an interview with pro-abortion activist Amanda Palmer, abortionist Leah Torres explains how she instructs women whose partners or families don’t want them to abort to fake a miscarriage. "That is the society that we live in. We have to protect pregnant people a lot of the time and protect what they want… That’s why I can say, here, you’re gonna take this pill, go to the bathroom, have a bath. When you’re in there, place these pills in your vagina and then you’re gonna have a miscarriage and that’s horrible and tragic, but at least your family will understand....

    Former abortion workers have admitted their facilities endangered women by hiring untrained workers to perform medical tasks. Two former abortion workers, Noemi and Jayne, told their stories in a webcast sponsored by And Then There Were None. Noemi described how syringes were filled in advance, administered without any regard for woman’s weight or medical history, and prepared by untrained workers. Jayne, who worked at Planned Parenthood of Delaware, was asked whether workers at her facility were also untrained. She answered: "I witnessed that often…. There were not many qualified people. I thought that the phlebotomists were trained phlebotomists but they...

    The pro-life group And Then There Were None held a webcast in which former abortion workers told their stories. Former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson asked Adrienne Moton, who once worked for Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell, whether women ever came in for repeat abortions. Moton responded: "Oh yes. To the point where we’re calling each other by first names. There is one woman, I don’t remember her name and I wouldn’t say her name – she was there 18 times. And she was just – I said, “18?” And she was just like, hey. It was like...

    Pregnancy resource centers offer a great deal of help to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. In addition to free pregnancy tests and counseling, most provide baby items, maternity clothes, help applying for benefits, parenting classes, and even housing resources – all for free. In addition, pregnancy centers allow women to see ultrasounds of their babies and give women information about fetal development and the risks of abortion. Most abortion facilities do not give this information to women. Groups like Planned Parenthood fight tooth and nail against informed consent laws requiring women to be told about their preborn babies’ development and abortion’s...

    Ramona Treviño is a former manager of a Planned Parenthood facility who left her job and is now pro-life. In her book, she shared the story of how a Catholic radio show helped open her eyes to the truth about abortion. Before she left Planned Parenthood, Trevino began having doubts about her work there. In her book, she writes: "For some time, I had been experiencing an unrelenting, secret turmoil.… I felt like someone engaged in an intense game of tug-of-war. At work, ‘every child should be a wanted child’ was a constant message. …This idea that every child should...

    Live Action News has documented many cases in which abortion workers pressured women to have abortions. Many former abortion workers have admitted that they were trained to aggressively sell abortions to women, even women who were ambivalent or unsure they wanted them. In some cases, pressure came from the owners of these facilities or from Planned Parenthood supervisors. Some former Planned Parenthood workers have claimed that Planned Parenthood established quotas or goals for the number of abortions to be committed, and reprimanded abortion workers who did not meet those quotas. In these cases, abortion was pushed on women because it...

    House of Horrors” Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell hired untrained workers to administer anesthesia and do other medical procedures, which led to the deaths of two women. But testimony from former abortion workers reveals that the wasn’t alone — other abortion facilities have also used untrained staff. In a webinar hosted by the pro-life group And Then There Were None, several former workers spoke about this. Former Kermit Gosnell worker Adrienne Moton explained in the webinar how Gosnell hired inexperienced people: "Most of us that worked in the back, including myself, had no – we were not licensed at all… His...

    FULL TITLE: UNSAFE: Former abortion workers say patients were rushed through so fast, instruments weren’t sterilized An abortionist quoted in the pro-abortion Ms. magazine wrote about how an abortion facility where she worked required her to commit abortions rapidly, one after another. This facility rushed women and allowed them limited time in the recovery room. She writes: "I learned… why one facility was labeled a “mill” by anti-choice activists. I remember driving several hours to the clinic, performing 26 abortions, driving home and falling asleep on my bathroom floor. Staffed by itinerant providers like myself, this clinic was simply too...

    Pro-abortion activists claim that those who work at abortion facilities are good medical professionals who want to help women. The pro-abortion narrative is that abortion facilities are well-run. Health regulations, we are told, are unnecessary. However, stories from post-abortive women reveal that many abortion facilities operate more like abortion assembly lines than healthcare providers. One woman, whose story appears on the Clinicquotes website, compares her abortion to rape: "It was much more painful than I thought it would be…The doctor was just perfunctory. It was kind of depressing because obviously he was doing a series of these; he was clicking...

    A new study, Affective and Substance Abuse Disorders Following Abortion by Pregnancy Intention in the United States: A Longitudinal Cohort Study, found that women who aborted their babies during wanted pregnancies suffered higher rates of depression and other mental disorders than those who aborted willingly. The “abortions of wanted babies” category includes women who aborted due to a disability in the baby, as well as those who were coerced into abortions by partners or parents. In the study, 20% of aborting women were classified as having aborted a baby they wanted. The study did not collect data on the reasons...

    Dr. Bryan Calhoun, vice chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at West Virginia University, explains why abortionists should have admitting privileges. We commonly (I personally probably at least weekly) see patients at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in our emergency room or ultrasound center with complications from abortions at the centers in Charleston: so much for “safe and legal.” These patients are told to come to our hospital because the abortion clinic providers do not have hospital privileges to care for their patients, so we must treat them as emergency “drop ins.… No other medical providers are allowed to care...

    In a webcast sponsored by the pro-life group And Then There Were None, former abortion worker Noemi spoke about a late-term abortion that endangered a woman’s life. Noemi worked for four years at Tampa Woman’s Health Center in Florida. Tampa Woman’s Health Center was allowed to do abortions up through 23 weeks and six days, which is the legal limit in Florida. However, Noemi explains that the abortion facility could go beyond this fetal age by manipulating the ultrasound reading and reporting a pregnancy to be earlier than it really was… In the state of Florida, you can go up...
