Abortion worker: “God will forgive you”

What one postabortion teenager says her abortion counselor told her when she asked her about God:

“God’s not going to do anything. He’ll forgive you if that’s your issue. Really, it’s not wrong because the fetus isn’t human. You’re six weeks pregnant, and you need to make a decision now.”

There was no reason for the clinic worker to tell the teen that she had to choose an abortion “now”. Abortion is legal in every state beyond 12 weeks.
