Abortion clinic manager: “What we do here is end a life”

Former abortion worker Jewels Green said she had nightmares from seeing the bodies of aborted babies on a daily basis. She took those concerns to the clinic manager:

“I was 20 years old when I told the clinic director, “I’m having nightmares. Does anyone else have nightmares when working autoclave?”

She replied, “What we do here is end a life. And if you’re not okay with that, you can’t work here.”

My schedule was changed for the next few weeks to give me a rest from the autoclave room… The next time I met with the clinic director, I assured her that I was on board with the work we did, and with our mission and dedication to preserving women’s reproductive rights…

I told myself that abortion was alright for other women, even though it had been dead wrong for me. I loved my job at the clinic, even though it gave me nightmares. While most of my friends were working at drugstores, retail shops, or work-study during college, I had a job with a purpose, and they envied me. I tried to keep my pesky conscience muzzled.”
