Former Clinic Worker: Jewels Green

Like many who work in abortion clinics, Jewels Green had an abortion herself, which had led to emotional trauma, including suicidal feelings and a psychiatric hospitalization. She worked in the abortion industry for five years, witnessing the aftermath of many abortions, before leaving her job.

Recently, she began speaking out about her experiences in the clinic. She says that a kind of “gallows humor” pervaded the clinic, in which the workers made jokes about the dead bodies of the babies they saw and the other distasteful aspects of abortion. For example:

“I vividly remember the cleaning lady who quit after finding a foot in the drain of the one of the sinks in the autoclave room (where the medical instruments were cleaned and sterilized after abortions) and how we all laughed and joked about it in the staff lounge for days and weeks afterward…”

She goes on to mention:

“But one thing about the clinic never sat well with me, and maybe this is because in my heart I always knew it was wrong. All of it was wrong. Especially this: the dead baby in the refrigerator in the lab. It was touted as a “teaching tool” and a “medical anomaly that this perfect 10-week-old fetus “survived” the suction abortion procedure perfectly intact. So he (I thought I could tell it was a he) was given the dubious honor of being preserved in formalin in a translucent plastic jar in the laboratory refrigerator. I think we called him Charlie, but I can’t really remember…. Occasionally I peeked in on him, fascinated by the bizarreness of it all, but also with a scientific curiosity—every other abortion resulted in parts, bits and pieces of human in the jar—but this miraculous little creature was perfectly formed and complete in every way, with the heartbreaking exception that he was dead. There was no amniotic sac, no placenta, just teeny-tiny perfect little baby. Floating in the jar. In the fridge. Forever silent witness to the march of death of his immature brethren. How I now pray his soul rests in peace, and that someday he is given decent burial—or at the very least tossed out with the rest of the bio-hazardous waste—for that would be far more merciful than where I knew him to be.”

She also says of the abortions she participated

“Abortion ends life. Period. This is not in question nor should it be. This is a fundamental truth. I worked in the autoclave room where the “products of conception” (as so many pro-choice proponents—and abortion clinic counselors—call the fetus and placenta) were rearranged and counted to make sure “we got everything.”…. For abortions from about 8 1/2 – 12 weeks, this meant counting hands and feet, making sure the spine and ribcage and skull were present, you get the idea. For the abortions where the gestational age of the fetus was in question, especially if there was a chance it was an “oops,” meaning a pregnancy terminated beyond the clinic’s legal limit of 14 weeks LMP (from last menstrual period), the feet were measured to determine a more accurate gestational age.

Working in the autoclave room was never, ever easy. I saw my lost child in every jar of aborted baby parts. One night after working autoclave my nightmares about dead babies were so gruesome and terrifying and intense I met with the clinic’s director to talk about my feelings.

She was very understanding, open and honest, and painfully forthright when she told me, “What we do here is end a life. Pure and simple. There is no disputing this fact. You need to be OK with this to work here.” After a few days rotated out of the autoclave room, I felt I was OK with this, and God help me, I went back.”

Green eventually did leave and is now a pro-life activist.

One thought on “Former Clinic Worker: Jewels Green”

  1. I was so touched by your article, and I pray for you from this point on, to let this pain be put into the hands of our creator who has your baby and these other babies comforted and in no torments. The fact is that many women and teens have been so lied to and self deceived due to desperate time limits of making a decision. The thought of giving up a child for adoption seemed so cruel.. and yet the desire to be in control… makes us do things unthinkable. However, I encourage you to know that if you have accepted Jesus as your best friend and Savior and asked for forgiveness.. this too is healed in his name! He died a horrific death to give us life.. and eternal life. His hope extends to the weak and defenseless. They are being used as human sacrifice by Satanic groups who have lied in courtrooms and deceived nations.. but the turnaround and repentance of many hurting and grieving women is healed when they know his compassion and justice. His way of dealing with this nation and Roe vs. Wade is ongoing in our lifetime, but God’s word endures forever! I pray that your sharing the truth is protected, and your life is blessed to be healed from this trauma, and that the Holy Spirit will help you live and sin no more not just in this.. but any area that you know is against his commandments! I pray for your salvation and forgiveness if this reply is not easy for you… and most of all to know that you are not alone. I too have suffered and my child was spared last minute.. but I was not told.. I was dilated, and the child removed, and never saw it again. I found out later she was adopted, but my case was unique as someone I knew who was very wealthy paid the clinic off to do such a thing. I would have raised my child had I gotten support and hope. I also found out this child suffered many things.. but became famous, and I do know who she is, but I cannot approach her. I have to let things be in God’s hands. I pray you will continue to reach out so that others can know the truth and be spared the pain we have both suffered. PS… I suffered the post trauma of abortion and still do even though it did not succeed.. just because of what it really is.. ending a life!
