Abortion worker explains how violence against abortionists “solidified” her pro-choice views

Former abortion worker Jewels Green writes about learning about murders of other abortion workers:

“There were other well-known murders of doctors and staff who worked at abortion facilities. I signed sympathy cards that were sent to the families of Dr. John Britton and James Barrett just a little over a year after Dr. Gunn was shot. Then, on December 30, 1994, two women were killed at a clinic shooting in Boston.

I imagine that some people left their jobs at abortion clinics after that. I didn’t quit, but I did wear a bulletproof vest to work for a week after the Boston killings. During this scary time, I had more nightmares about being killed at work than I did about the killing going on in the procedure rooms.

These terrible events solidified my pro-choice ideology into a steadfast commitment to ensuring that abortion would remain a legal option for pregnant women.”
