Here is a message that Julie wanted you to hear. Her name has been changed to protect her privacy.
I just had to send you all a note and tell you to keep up the good work. I am so very grateful to God to see sites like yours that expose Planned Parenthood for what they are. They are an industry. They're in business to profit however they can, to make and take as much money as possible.
Abortion is incredibly painful and personal to me. When I was 19, I found myself pregnant, alone, and with no support in my life. When I turned to Planned Parenthood for my needs in finding a doctor for prenatal care they dismissed me, told me they had no information for that type of thing and referred me to the clinic that would perform abortions. It was not the information I asked them for nor was it the information I wanted. I couldn't talk to my mother and had gone to Planned Parenthood for years for birth control, testing, and check ups. I always thought they had my best interests in mind. I found out harshly and painfully that they did not. When I told my mother about my pregnancy, she basically told me I had to have this abortion if I wanted anything out of my life. I was so scared to tell her "No, I want my baby." She paid for it. And the day I went to the clinic, the very first thing they did when I walked in was take my money. All $450 of it. After what would never pass for counseling anywhere else, I had an ultrasound. I went back out front and went up to the same lady who took my money when I first got there. I asked her, the staff member of Planned Parenthood working behind the desk, what would happen if I changed my mind and didn't want to have the abortion. She told me that I had already paid and that I could not have my money refunded. I could leave, but could not get a refund. I was crushed. I knew my Mom would be furious if I went home still pregnant and missing her money. So I stayed and made the most devastating choice in my life.
It took me 7 years to even begin to think of dealing with the fact that I had had an abortion. Without God's love and forgiveness I would not be where I am today. I know He led me out of the misery that was my life after the death of my child so that I could lend my voice to His will. I felt Him leading me tonight as I searched for a way I could help with the upcoming elections and votes in
Again, thank you very much for your site. It really validated my feelings of being wronged by Planned Parenthood and reaffirmed to me that I do have the right to speak up and say how they deceived me.
I appreciate your reading through this message with its length. I have never general emailed from a website before but I just really wanted you all to know that I appreciate what you are doing and all of your hard work.
Thank You for getting this message out!
