The wife of an Alabama pastor is hitting back at her critics after video emerged purportedly showing her husband dropping her off at a local abortion clinic, where she reportedly works one day per week.
Callie Chatman, wife of Pastor Louis Chatman of New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, told the Christian Post that she believes everyone is a sinner — and that people should look at their own transgressions before criticizing clinic workers and women who seek abortions.
"I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don't know why, other than that's the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make," Callie Chatman told the Christian Post. "That's her right to make that decision, because that's her body."
Chatman, a certified medical technician who is employed by Reproductive Health Services, came under fire after David Day Sr., a Christian missionary, posted a brief video to YouTube that he said shows Pastor Louis Chatman dropping her off at the clinic.
"Sadly, this is a Montgomery pastor dropping off his wife who works at the [abortion clinic] here in Montgomery. We have spoken to her often and the only response we get is that God forgives and we are not to judge," Day wrote in the clip's description. "Her husband is the pastor of New Elam Baptist Church. Her son works here as well as the security."
Clearly taking aim at Chatman's involvement with the clinic, the missionary went on to also call for prayer for the pastor's family members.
"Pray for the family, pray for those who work at the abortuary, pray for the parents who each week come to murder their baby," Day wrote. "May God show them mercy and grace and Has shown to even the chief of sinners."

Chatman, though, who didn't address the video in the interview, responded to critics by telling the Christian Post that her role at the clinic is to let women know that "God is a forgiving God and that he will forgive them of their sin."
"You know what? The activists need to get their lives together," she said of her critics. "When they become sin free then you call me back."
Chatman said that her husband doesn't oppose her work at Reproductive Health Services, according to the Christian Post.
A phone call placed by TheBlaze to Pastor Louis Chatman at New Elam Baptist Church seeking comment went unanswered on Tuesday.
