We are continuing our review of some of the speakers and content at our Convention on April 2, in no particular order of their appearance at the event.
Catherine Adair is fast becoming known among pro-lifers in the US and, in fact, is scheduled to be one of the speakers at the National Right to Life Convention this summer in Washington, DC. But she is a homegrown treasure right here in Massachusetts and she shared her compelling story with us at the 2016 Convention.
As a young woman, Catherine procured an abortion for herself. Later, after getting a degree in women’s studies, she went to work for Planned Parenthood in Brookline, as a counselor and later as a medical assistant, despite not having any medical or counseling education. In chilling detail, Catherine talked about the often callous and dehumanizing way that women and their children are treated in abortion clinics and what it does to the employees who work there.
We’ve heard other stories of abortionists and clinic workers who’ve had an awakening and left the profession—Abby Johnson is only the most well-known recent example—but we do well to be reminded of what’s really happening behind those closed doors. Many of the women who turn to the clinics are facing scary, life changing circumstances, but they are sometimes coerced onto an unstoppable conveyor belt that leads to the abortion of their child.
If you aren’t able to hear Catherine’s story in person, as we did at the Convention, visit her blog and read her story as she recounted it over the past several years. I think you’ll find yourself feeling a renewed commitment to join us in the fight to protect LIFE.
