Abortion doctor exploits single mothers

Abby Johnson runs a pro-life outreach to abortion clinic workers. And Then There Were None provides emotional and sometimes financial support to clinic workers who want to leave their jobs. Anyone following ATTWN’s updates has seen how many of the clinic workers who leave are single mothers. Former clinic worker Joy Davis describes how abortion clinic owners make an effort to hire single mothers who they can more easily control:

“If the doctor had somebody come and apply for job whose husband was a big hot shot that made a lot of money, then he didn’t want her working for him. But if they were single, and had children, that’s the one he wanted. He could control them. And he controlled me probably most of all. I had two children, I had a son that had severe problems… And he preyed on that. Because when I started getting into such financial problems with my son’s medical care, that’s when he started making all the demands on me. That’s when he really started pushing on me hard, to change records and to treat patients, and to be a doctor and not get paid a doctors wage. And it wasn’t just me, he did that to a lot of people… I can refer to [the abortionist] like I can an abused woman, and I’ve seen this with a lot of abused women, where their husbands abuse them and they make them think it’s their fault, and they won’t leave their husband even though he beats them… I find that to be true with [the abortionist]. He will abuse his employees, mentally, just put them through the ringer, then turn around and do something very wonderful for them, to make them think he really cares about them… He was always doing things for me that made me feel obligated to him.”
