Priests need to talk about abortion, says former abortion clinic director

Jennifer Hartline recounts the following from an interview with Abby Johnson:

She [Abby Johnson] told me [interviewer Jennifer Hartline] of a conversation she had with a priest at a conference recently when she insisted that our priests need to be talking about abortion from the pulpit every week, and that the sanctity of human life needs to be mentioned in the Prayers of the Faithful every week.  This priest said, “C’mon, Abby, how often do we really need to include abortion in our homilies?”  She replied, “Well, we’d often have women come in for an abortion and lay on the table with a rosary in their hands.  I had two employees in my clinic who would help perform abortions on Saturday and be at Mass on Sunday receiving the Eucharist.  You tell me, how often do you think we need to talk about abortion?”
