It happens all too often that a person’s ideology and moral conscience are in deep conflict.
This is exemplified in the story of Catherine Adair, who was so entrenched in her “pro-choice” philosophy that she couldn’t see that the guilt and depression she so regularly experienced stemmed from an abortion in her youth.
Her way of dealing with this conflict was to throw herself into radical feminism at an early age—to so fully commit herself to the pro-abortion philosophy that there was simply no way she would have to face the real source or her problems.
The full realization of this commitment came when she joined Planned Parenthood as a counselor, ushering other women through the same process she had gone through years before.
She became uneasy over time with what she saw in the counseling room, but it was what she witnessed alone in the operating room after a procedure that caused her to become disgusted with abortion. She left the industry shortly thereafter, but continued to call herself pro-choice.
It wasn’t until much later in her life that she actually changed her views on abortion and was able to come to terms with what she had done.
