As pro-life activists we have to remind ourselves from time to time that not every individual in the abortion industry is fully aware of what they are participating in.
This was the case for Ruth Yorston, who worked as a receptionist at her local abortion clinic, the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization, where her mother also worked as an assistant administrator.
Ruth came from a progressive liberal family where the topic of abortion was assumed to be “a woman’s right” and discussed no further, which is why it seemed like a natural choice for her to join her mother working at the abortion clinic when she finished high school.
After about a year of working there, she told her friend Andy about the job. Andy, who was strongly pro-life, responded with a gentle gesture that completely reversed her view of abortion.
She quit her job immediately, and though it was the cause of much contention within her household for years, she worked hard to maintain a solid relationship with her parents. This effort paid off in her mother’s final years when they were ultimately able to reconcile their differences.
