Former clinic worker on late term abortion

Margot, a former abortion clinic worker, was interviewed by Abby Johnson on a webcast done by And Then There Were None.  And Then There Were None is an organization that helps abortion center workers leave the abortion industry.  The organization has helped over 200 abortion facility workers and 7 full time abortionists leave their jobs.

Former abortion worker Margot worked in a late-term abortion facility in the POC room. POC stand for “products of conception,” a term clinic workers use for aborted babies. Jackie handled and inspected the fully formed body parts of late term babies killed in abortions.

At one point in the webcast, Abby Johnson asks her:

You worked at a late-term clinic. Can you share just a little bit, was there a specific profile of the women who came in? You know, we always hear from the abortion movement that the only women who have late-term abortions are women who have been given an extremely grave fetal diagnosis. Was that always the case in your clinic? Because I, you know for us, we referred women who had completely healthy pregnancies, who had completely healthy babies, to places like Doctor Tiller and Doctor Warren Hern in Colorado. So could you just speak to that a little bit. I’m sure that there were cases where there had been the anomaly diagnosed, but was that always the case in your clinic?

Johnson is responding to the common pro-abortion argument that all late term abortions are done because of horrible health problems experienced by the mother or baby. Many pro-choice organizations claim that late term abortions are only done in these dire circumstances- when the baby will die shortly after birth or be born horribly disabled.

Margot replies:

Almost never, Abby. Almost never. Almost never. I would say that the highest profile of women that were having the late-term abortions were completely normal pregnancies, quite often young, and sometimes had just had more fear of having to tell someone they were pregnant, or being so completely out of touch with their own body that they didn’t understand and how rapidly the pregnancy was progressing, or I don’t know.…

Overwhelmingly, the late-term procedures that we did were not for fetal anomalies. We did late-term procedures on women who were perimenopausal and didn’t want to be pregnant. We did them on teenagers.

It is a myth that late-term abortions are only done for fetal anomalies or disabilities. Of course, even in such cases one can argue that it is wrong to take a baby’s life just because they will be disabled. No one has the right to judge another person’s life not worth living and act as executioner for that person.
