An anonymous caller on a Christian radio show described her job at Planned Parenthood in an emotional interview Friday.
The caller said on Dr. Michael Brown’s “The Line of Fire” that she is a Christian single mom working in an administrative role at a Planned Parenthood clinic although she is “totally against abortion.” She said that while she doesn’t perform abortions, she struggles with “guilt” about her job, which she took because it “pays well” and she needs to support her daughter.
“I know we have to answer to God for everything that we do, but will I be judged the same way as people who actually has abortions and things like that?” she asked. “How do you think God sees that? Do you think I am too far gone to go back?”
Brown told her that she is not too far to go back to God, “but you need to get out of there” and quit.
“God is merciful and compassionate,” Brown said, adding that God understands her struggles and “there is forgiveness” if she seeks it.
The caller said she has worked at Planned Parenthood for four months. She said that when she took the job she was promised that she wouldn’t have to “see anything in the back” — but that wasn’t true, because managers oversee all aspects of the clinics.
“There is a room in the back that is called a POC room — ‘products of conception.’ It’s where things are processed,” the caller said through tears. “They refer to it as either ‘tissue’ or ‘fetus’ but I saw it for the first time. It’s a baby. It’s not tissue. It’s really bad. It is. It’s a baby; there’s legs, there’s arms and there is eyes. It’s a baby.”
She said sometimes during ultrasound procedures, unborn children appear to be “fighting back.”
“It’s murder, it’s just not right,” she said as she cried, adding that abortion is “what the pro-life people say it is, they’re telling you the truth.”
The caller admitted that she stopped going to church because she is embarrassed about her job.
“Don’t think for a moment God’s grace is not there,” Brown said, adding that the Holy Spirit made her “uncomfortable” with her job and touched her conscience.
“Jesus died for any and all sins you’ve committed,” he said. “It’s not that you have left God entirely, you just made a wrong decision. It’s one that is understandable but it is absolutely wrong and you need to get out of there and trust God for your next step. He won’t fail you.”
