You have probably read elsewhere in the blogosphere the good, indeed joyous, news that a director of a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas has resigned, citing a "conversion," though apparently she already considered herself a Christian and means only a conversion away from her pro-abortion position. It sounds as if her conscience had been bothering her for some time, but two things catalyzed her decision to quit: First of all, her employers appeared in their true colors, pushing her to sell abortion more aggressively to bring in more cash. I'm going to guess (though she doesn't say so) that she had been one of these types who say, "I'm not pro-abortion, I'm pro-choice," and obviously this would not sit well with selling abortions like corn chips. The second thing was seeing an abortion on ultrasound, presumably one performed at her facility.
Anyone who has prayed outside an abortion mill knows that one of the things one prays for is the conversion of those who work there. This is undoubtedly an answer to many, many prayers.
Planned Parenthood has gotten a restraining order against her, telling her not to release any "confidential information." As far as I can tell, "confidential information" isn't defined, and the really damning revelation--about their push for more abortions--is out of the bag already, so one wonders what they are still trying to hide.
For the other side of the coin, we have to turn to the Dominican Sisters in Hinsdale, IL.
A "nun" (I use the term advisedly), named Donna Quinn, a notorious dissident, is acting as an escort at the local Planned Parenthood. Her superior defends her, stating (falsely) that the pro-lifers praying at the clinic and trying to dissuade women from going into the abortion mill are "abusive" and that Sr. Donna is there for that reason. In actuality, it sounds like the abuse is being shouted by Sr. Donna, who has been known to yell at sidewalk counselors, "Look at these men, telling these women what to do with their bodies!" As one commentator at Scott W's site put it, it would be less evil for the Sister to run a different kind of escort service.
What I find striking about these two stories is the fact that the director of the Texas clinic clearly had a softer heart to begin with than this "nun" does. The "nun" is a rampaging ideologue, whereas the Texas director was apparently trying to tell herself some sort of comforting lies which ultimately became untenable.
But with God all things are possible. I guess we have'ta pray for Sr. Quinn.
