For six years Carol Everett operated four abortion clinics in Texas. As reported by The Catholic Register, Everett earned a commission for every abortion in addition to a share of the fees charged by each clinic. She says she sold abortion and made big bucks off of the “cash cow” of abortion. A new abortion clinic, she said at the annual Rose Dinner for the National March for Life in Ottawa, would make enough money to pay for itself in a single month.
The clinics’ system to make the quick cash was quite simple. The abortionist would move from one room to the next, performing abortion after abortion, often without cleaning up between abortions, according to Everett.
In addition, Everett said that the counselors at the clinics are more like telemarketers. They are trained to schedule abortions and use wording to eliminate a potential clients’ fears and objections concerning abortion.
Everett, who left the abortion industry after a Christian business counselor she hired lead her to Christ, also talked about how damaging government-funded sex education programs are. In her speech at the Rose Dinner, she took aim at the programs for stealing away the innate modesty of children and creating a rift between children and their parents. She says that the programs aim to teach children that talking to their parents about sex is uncomfortable and then they offer to be the people the children turn to for support. She says that girls are then provided with low dose birth control, which is ineffective if not taken at the same time each and every day, which is close to impossible for any teenager. When the girls get pregnant, they then turn to abortion clinics, she says.
Once Everett admitted to herself that she was a “baby-killing” and “woman-killing woman” she finally noticed the harm she and her abortion clinics were doing for a quick buck. For the first time, she took notice of the “girls sitting in the corner crying” at the clinic. She saw how her own abortion had lead her down this path of pain. She turned away from the industry and started a foundation to help women and girls facing crisis pregnancies.
Everett credited the closing of 28 abortion clinics in Texas to God and she believes that new legislation will lead to more closings and more lives saved. Without the money from abortions, these clinics that claim to exist to help women, will close. Something all pro-lifers look forward to.
