Former abortionists: I was leaving behind an empty shell

From former abortionist Dr. Beverly McMillan:

 “… Some of my abortion clinic patients became part of my other private practice. Some were now married and pregnant with “wanted” babies. Others were simply coming back to me for other medical needs or periodic examinations.

Some of these women were now regretting their abortions and experiencing great grief. Others who did not regret their abortions would not discuss them. Even when asked the routine question by a nurse, “Have you ever been pregnant before?” They would reply, “No” – an outright denial of what had occurred… I had gotten involved in abortion because I wanted to help. But instead, while sucking the child out of its mother I was also sucking out the mother’s soul and leaving an empty shell, an empty tomb….

In my experience, at least 90% of aborted women experience guilt and regret to a greater or lesser degree….

I wasn’t helping [the women.] Some of them just came back again. It was like aiding an alcoholic, because they weren’t learning anything. Not only that, they experienced sexual dysfunction in their marriages and ambivalence when they finally had a wanted pregnancy.”
