Q) A clinic worker that came to us has quit her job. I want to tell other people the good news!
A) STOP!! Do NOT talk to people about the situation—this must remain confidential and the clinic worker’s privacy must be protected. Do not talk to your pastor, do not talk to your prayer team, do not talk to the other 40 Days for Life team members, do not talk to the local pregnancy resource center. ATTWN will be the primary contact for ALL communication. There may be times when we will need you to help us with local resources. Until then, everything MUST remain confidential.
Our goal is not to create new pro-life speakers. The primary goal of ATTWN is to draw clinic workers out of the abortion industry and set them on a path to recovery. Once a clinic worker has come to terms with what he or she has witnessed and participated in during the time working in the clinic (this can take months, years, or even decades), then they can make a rational, conscious decision whether to come forward and go public with their testimony…or they may decide to never go public with their story.
Once a road to recovery has been established, if a former worker desires to speak out, ATTWN will support them entirely (this includes legal support). However, ATTWN will never push or require a former worker to reveal their identity or come out with their story publicly. Do not break confidentiality of former workers.
