Former Clinic Worker: Kirsten Breedlove

Breedlove was the director of a for-profit abortion clinic in Dallas which did late-term abortions. She was the clinic director for two years before her pro-life conversion

“I called myself the administrator, but I was a 22-year-old LVN [Licensed Vocational Nurse] with no experience at all. My counselors were not trained as counselors. They were high-school graduates with no type of counseling degree at all. I would call them counselors. We gave the girls no alternative choices when I first started doing this…. On a typical day 20 girls were rushed though. It was almost like a factory line. They were just pushed through one at a time. They were given no personal attention …. A good doctor could do a suction abortion in three minutes. … [The women] were sent home and told to come back in two weeks. When they came back all we did was a urine test to make sure they were not still pregnant. The doctor would walk in and say, ‘Good news, you are not still pregnant,’ and then walk out without ever examining her.”

“You would just look in the buckets and see arms and legs. I have horrible dreams about that now. It was something you would see in a scary movie.”

According to the author of the article:

“Some of the nine clinic workers actually refused ever to go back there. When Miss Breedlove would ask them to go measure a dead baby’s foot, a standard procedure, some would reply with a flat – no.”

Mark Gabriel was a pro-life protester who was frequently thrown in jail:

“Around January I noticed a definite change,” [Breedlove] she says. Mark and other protesters started asking her to pray with them; something clicked in her and she started talking with them. “They would show me a lot of love. What I used to think was hate was actually love; they would be out there praying for me.”

“Every day I would go in the clinic and hear the same thing over and over again, and I started thinking about what they were saying; questioning my own self.”

She became friends with the protesters. Around this time, she started talking women out of having abortions at her clinic. She would show them the ultrasound and discuss with them the option of having the baby. She had not done this before.

“She started asking women to take a look at the screen with her. “You don’t want to abort this. C’mon, I have some people who will help you “ At that point she would walk them outside and introduce them to the protesters, who would take them to a nearby crisis pregnancy center.”

Partly due to the business lost due to Breedlove’s new attitude, the clinic went bankrupt.
