It’s not the career of which they dreamed. Can you imagine your fourth grader raising his hand in class and proclaiming, “I want to be an abortionist when I grow up?” That has never happened.
Yet somehow they end up there. Men and women who themselves started out as unborn children with amazing potential end up destroying life at its most vulnerable stages.
Dr. John Bruchalski, who is now a pro-life activist, describes how his heart became increasingly hardened and calloused to the reality of what he was doing. I saw this first hand in college when I volunteered to pray weekly at a local abortion clinic. The abortionist could always be seen hunched over, non-responsive, barely alert, almost numb from the effects of the many abortions he performed.
