We are frequently contacted by people who have friends and family working in the industry. They are so distraught... wondering how they can reach these people that they love. What will they say? What if doesn't go well? What then?. What if we started a campaign where people could write letters to their loved ones in the industry? What if abortion workers could see how their work deeply affects the people in their lives? So that's exactly what we have done.
We want to give you an opportunity to reach out to the people you love who work in this industry. You can put your name on it if you want to, or you can leave it anonymous. You can also choose to put your loved one's name on the letter. How you write your letter is completely up to you.
I want to tell you my story. When my mother was expecting me she developed German Measles and later Hepatitis. Of course her doctor recommended an abortion to protect her. It was the doctor she went to for the abortion who convinced her that abortion is not always the best answer. It was the wisdom of this woman that not only saved my life, but helped my mother through a very hard time in her life. It takes a brave individual to see that abortion is not always a good solution and stand up and suggest maybe something else could be done. It isn’t easy to go against what the general public believe, but one person can make all the difference in the world!
There are times when we think we’re past the point of no return. But I hope you know that’s a lie. There’s always room for return, for redemption. There isn’t anything you can do that will cause God to love you less, or love you more because he already loves you completely. There’s room for you to leave this job, and room in God’s arms for you to experience his love – no matter what you’ve done or haven’t done. Come home.
When you were conceived I felt joy. When you moved within me, I felt joy. When your little head was born, I felt joy. When I felt your first cry while you were still inside me, I felt joy. When the doctor said, it looks like a boy, I momentarily felt disappointment , but when you were fully. born, I felt incredible joy that you were who you are. Every mother deserves to feel this joy and every worker in the abortion industry denies this joy every day to every woman who suffers an abortion. We all need joy in our lives, and new life brings joy to so many. Let’s work to bring more joy into the world, because joy leads to hope, instead of depression. No one should suffer from depression. As your mother, it hurts to see you suffer when you could be spreading love and joy. I love you despite anything you have ever said or done to lash out at me or others, because I still feel joy knowing you are my daughter. You are loved and always will be. Signed, Mom
YOU ARE LOVED DOWN TO YOUR VERY CORE, TO YOUR VERY SOUL BY YOUR CREATOR. No matter what you do, or what you’ve done, you were created by a loving being to do good things for your fellow humans. Using your gifts to truly help others will bring you a joy and a purpose like you have never known. Imagine what that would be like, to experience joy in your work! Use your many talents and gifts to make life better for all the lives involved. Help is available, love is available, joy and peace will follow when you walk away from the abortion industry. How will you know, if you do not try? Test it, you will see. You will find true friends here waiting for you.
You are so loved. In fact, you are an easy person to love! You have such a giving, tender heart. You are thoughtful, compassionate, kind and generous. And these characteristics do not slowly uncover themselves after people get to know you. They are apparent the minute one meets you. People are drawn to you and feel comfortable with you because of that very special quality you have. It is a gift, and one you give to others everyday, even if you are not aware of it.
You have also been given the gift of a keen intellect. You should be very proud of your achievements from a prestigious East Coast institution.
It must have felt very flattering and gratifying to receive an offer upon graduation at Planned Parenthood. It promised a good salary. The location was perfect. No crazy, swing shift hours. The job offered stability. Planned Parenthood is quite good at creating camaraderie amongst its workers. . They claim advocacy for women and that appeals to your giving, helpful personality. But you should leave Planned Parenthood.
Your gifts and talents are being abused. In spite of the salary or benefits you may be receiving, Planned Parenthood is not a good organization. Public media is extremely damning towards Planned Parenthood and it seems more is to come. What the released videos are exposing is horrifying. There may be cries of “edited videos”, “militant attacks from anti-choice groups”, etc. but here is a fact. No matter if a person is “pro-choice” or “pro-life” it is nearly impossible to feel “pro-Planned Parenthood”.
We all have people in our lives that have had an abortion. Sometimes they are people we love very much: close friends, sisters, and mothers… Sometimes it is we. And so, we want to justify – even support – an organization that provides those services without making judgments. It feels impossible to “condemn” abortion when someone we love so much – in maybe scary, dire circumstances – has chosen that path. But the simple truth is that abortion changes you – and not just the person having the abortion. The ripple effect travels to boyfriends, husbands, siblings, parents, friends, and grandparents. Emotions may be shut down and closed behind a locked door, but they are there and will eventually refuse to stay behind locked doors. That is they way humans work. We can compartmentalize our lives for so long before the feelings leak out in sometimes-poisonous ways. Planned Parenthood may deny this, but it is the truth. Your clinic may not provide abortions directly, but it certainly refers its clients to a place that does perform abortions.
Even “just working” at Planned Parenthood impacts more people than you realize. For some, it is confusing. For others, it is heartbreaking. Still others, it is deeply disturbing. So many people love and admire you. It is out of love that this letter is being written.
You have made no commitments to Planned Parenthood. No vows have been taken! It is not a religion where allegiances have been made. You are a nurse, and have so many, many gifts to give our world. You deserve to be in a setting where life is protected. You deserve to be in a setting where your nursing skills are used to save lives. You deserve to be in a setting that is not fraught with controversy, and ugly truths that go with abortions.
You deserve the best! Please take the leap of faith (and I know it is a BIG one!) and leave Planned Parenthood. Don’t allow the lie of “I can’t do this now” stop you from doing what is most beneficial for you. You will be supported. You will be helped. You will be understood.
You are a strong woman. DO this for yourself. There are many people behind you and praying for you.
Please quit. I know, I know, we are raised to see things through, to not be quitters. Finish what you start and all that. But what happens when you take a job because the bills have to be paid then realize the job was not quite what they said it would be? What happens when you find yourself jaded? What happens when you look in the mirror and no longer recognize yourself? Well then, it’s time to quit.
Please quit. I will make no secret of the fact that I hate abortion. But I don’t hate you. I pray for you daily. I want nothing but the best for you, I just happen to believe the best for you is not in the abortion industry. Whether you work the front desk, as a security guard, a janitor, or as one of the medical professionals, you have so much more going for you somewhere, anywhere else.
Please quit. Look down deep inside yourself and have an honest conversation with yourself. Is this really how you want to spend your life? You are an awesome human being, but your work is poison to your soul.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved! You are not less because of the job you’ve taken or unworthy to have another. You are more than this job. You are not beyond leaving it.
You are 7 years old today! I have missed you every single day since you have left this earth. They say loss is supposed to get easier but I have missed you the same every single day. When I was blessed enough to be able to carry you I felt such bliss. I your father and I loved you from the first time we saw those two lines on the test. When I found out that your heart was failing, my heart just sunk. I couldn’t save your life but I decided to enjoy every single day that I had left with you. I prayed that God would just allow me to give birth to you for long enough that I could at least give you a hug…. That’s all that I wanted, a hug! God had other plans for you, though. He wanted you to come to Him as soon as possible. Now you are with your uncle and little cousin and I am so very proud of you. I know that you have been watching over me and we are so very blessed to have you, my little Angel! Your brothers and sisters love you and remember you all of the time. You are a precious gift and I cannot thank God enough for you!
To those reading this, please know that love and forgiveness and without bounds, especially God’s! No mistakes, hurts, or evils are beyond Gim and his boundless Love. Know that as I love my child, so God does LOVE YOU EVEN MORE! You are His creation. May life show you the grace and beauty that is human life and may you know that God’s love is REAL!
I’m not sure how to start this or what to say….So I’ll write from my heart. No matter. What you have been told no matter what you have done…your heavenly father, your daddy God loves you immeasurably and completely. He loves you so much ..he sent his son to die for you to save you heal you deliver you from your past… I know..I may not know the deepness of your pain or sorrows… But I have felt pain sorrow sadness been abandoned and betrayed..My parents abused me growing up..abandoned me. I turned to cutting to cope. But it ended up controlling me. For years I sinned against God by cutting. Though it’s not the same as working at a Planned Parenthood..sin is sin…I began going to celebrate recovery a 12 step christian confidential program….Thru it God set me free…God can and will heal you too its a process a journey well worth taking. God loves you he wants to be your comfort, your peace, your provider..In Christ we are overcomers, conquerors….you can do this. You may feel you’re in a deep pit where no one can see you or save you…but God can. He loves you so much he created you…he’s been with you your whole life. Bad things happen as a result of people being selfish and sins… Not because God wills it wherever you have been God’s been with you crying with you, holding you, leading you to where you are now. I love you and am and will be praying for you.
I wanted to write to you today because I care about you. I know that probably doesn’t fit what you may have heard about me because you see I am a pro-lifer & they say we’re not supposed to get along. I want to change that. Despite what you may have heard I want you to be healthy, happy & respected. I understand that you may not be ready to say you are pro-life, you may even still believe in abortion. Regardless of your position you may have come to the conclusion this isn’t for you. It may be because you don’t like the way your particular clinic is run, it may be you have seen the new Planned Parenthood videos that have come out or it may simply be a vague feeling that you just can’t do this anymore. I wanted you to know there is support for you if you leave. You may have concerns about finances or how to tell you boss it is time for you to leave. There is help at And Then There Were None for you and your particular situation. I especially want to ask those who are hurting from their own abortions, who have nightmares or who have other troubling issues to take advantage of a good counseling program. You are loved, you do matter, you do deserve better.
YOU have options available, no matter who you are or where you are.
YOU can achieve your previous hopes and dreams.
YOU can leave the abortion industry behind and live the life you want.
YOU can simply walk away.
YOU are capable of change that can set you free.
YOU, my friend can and will save lives by walking away !
YOU, my friend can and will save families and/or marriages !
YOU, my friend can and will help and/or save young girls and women !
YOU, my friend can be the exception to the rule.
Sincerely and with love, #You’reWorthMore #WeCare
I love you because God loves you…unconditionally. There is nothing you have done or can do to change that. But your own heart could someday condemn you. I don’t want that to happen to you. You are worth more than that. Turn away from this work you are doing, and turn to something that is worth the awesome person that you really are. You can make a positive difference in this world. I encourage you to live up to your true potential. Don’t settle!
I have been praying for you for a long time. God is limitless in His mercy. You have many wonderful gifts to lend our world. Please take a deep breath and trust in His goodness. Take a baby step in faith.
My friend, I care about you. When I think of you I see someone sweet, vivacious, positive, idealistic…I remember when your ideals took you to Haiti. I am sure that now, just like then, you want to help people and that is what you believe. I shudder to think of the things you may see or be expected to do; I worry about the high cost this will exact on you. It would be a tragedy for you to become like someone who discusses crushing little bodies over lunch. Please, please run before you get caught up any deeper in this.
You don’t have to do this work. It must tear you up inside, to see pain and suffering of young mothers day after day,to see babies ripped out of the protection of the womb. You CAN leave your job. There are lots of people waiting to help you. God forgives you for what you have done.
There are some words from a song at church I am reminded of, that might help you:
Nothing that you’ve done can make him love you more. And nothing that you’ve done would make him close the door. Because of His great love, He gave his only Son. Everything was done that you would come. Come to the Father…..
I love you. He loves you. Many people love you.
I am writing to you because you were created for so much more. Our heavenly Father made you to be a source of life to those around you just as He is, and to partner with Him in nurturing and protecting life. Please do not settle for anything less. I pray you will walk in the abundance of life He intended for you.
I have so much to say to you, my precious child. I’ve loved you since before you were born. You were the culmination of my dreams and hearts desire for 8 years before your birth. We were so proud and joyous waiting for you to be born. I had such great dreams of you being a doctor to help heal people, deliver babies, and treat the many ailments of mankind.
Your dad and I sacrificed so much for you to become a doctor. We were so proud when you graduated from medical school and finished your residency in Chicago.
Then our hearts were broken and our spirits were slashed by your choice to perform abortions. We cry everyday, I don’t think we will ever feel a greater pain than on that day we learned of your decision to be an abortionist. Your dad and I are broken people because of your decision. Your desire to do exactly what you want has had deep ramifications on all of us who love you so much. You family has been so deeply hurt. It kills babies, the most vulnerable of all life, and hurts these mothers who have chosen to have the abortion…her life will be forever impacted by her decision.
You may ask how we, as parents, survive knowing the child we’ve borne is an abortionist? Every morning, with sadness and tears, I am greeted with this reality. Yet I am comforted by my Savior who suffered much for me. I am comforted by prayers of friends with whom I’ve shared my agony. Many scriptures give me strength: God is sovereign over all and that includes my woes… We walk by faith and not by sight… Sight will always defeat me but faith is strong in the Lord’s word… To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.. I’ve not put my faith in something that is not able to deliver me from my circumstance… When, I am broken, He heals me and calls me His own and I am made whole… My grace is sufficient for thee, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Our sweet daughter, we still love you even if though there is this searing pain in our hearts. We pray constantly for your eyes to be opened so the light of truth may flood your soul. We know that God is the only One who can reach you. Please stop performing these abortions, and return to us, your mom and dad, who ache to see you and hold you close again. You don’t need to explain or apologize to us. Just stop and you will be received with open hearts and open arms waiting to hold you. We will never hold this against you.
Anyone considering being part of the abortion industry, I know you have good intentions, but good intentions can be used by Satan to do evil. The results of your deeds are death and destruction of family relationships. Many are impacted by your choice, their pain is deep. I so wish my nightmare will end.
