The no-holds-barred headline captures what Marianne Anderson told reporter Natalie Hoefer: “Former local Planned Parenthood nurse shares her story of walking away from evil.”
The full shocking interview with this former Planned Parenthood nurse can be read online at The Criterion, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
Do yourself a favor and read it carefully but not on a full stomach.
What happened, you ask?
According to the interview, when Anderson hired on at the Indianapolis abortion clinic she knew what Planned Parenthood did, although she was “kind of on the fence about abortion.”
Her journey seems to have started when some women came from the national office to teach them the conscious sedation process, described by Hoefer as “allowing clients to purchase mild to moderate sedatives to be given intravenously before an abortion.”
They were so gung-ho, it unnerved Anderson, it would appear.
It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ I thought, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ That was about six to eight months after I started.
“Those women from New York acted like an abortion was a rite of passage. They were like, ‘How can you not offer abortion to women? It’s their body. They should be able to do whatever they want. How can you force them to have a baby? Abortion should be free to anybody, anytime.’ ”
Worse yet there were real medical problems for the women, Anderson said, including one girl who “almost bled out. She was passing clots, her blood pressure was dropping.” (She explained that often this was a reaction to the sedation or excessive bleeding.) And, of course, mum was the word when something went wrong.
