God works in mysterious ways.
In the last week of July, 2017, an anonymous single mother called in to the Christian radio show “The Line of Fire”, hosted by Dr. Michael Brown. Struggling with guilt as both a Christian single mom and an employee at Planned Parenthood, she called in to the radio show and gave a heartfelt interview.
From the conversation, Americans had the chance to hear a firsthand account of what it’s like to work in the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The anonymous caller to “The Line of Fire” was clear that she didn’t perform any medical care, including assisting with abortions. She stated that her job at the Planned Parenthood clinic was strictly administrative, and that her beliefs as a Christian coincide with her strong belief that abortion is wrong.
The caller was feeling guilty, which is why she made the call in the first place. She stated that as a single mother, it’s hard to find work that pays well enough to support her and her young daughter. She has been feeling bad about her job since the day she decided to take it.
In her interview, the caller reminded Christians everywhere that there will come a time when God judges our actions while here on earth. Her fear is that she will be judged similarly to those who have abortions, or who directly perform the abortions. She questioned how God thought about those that work at a place that performs abortions, and she declared concern for her soul when it comes to her judgment day.
Dr. Michael Brown was clear with the anonymous caller that you are never too far gone to turn back to God. When you truly repent your actions, God is all-forgiving. He encouraged the caller to quit her job so that she no longer felt the guilt or fear for the eternity of her soul.
“God is merciful and compassionate, and understands your struggles,” Dr. Brown assured.
The unidentified caller has only been working for Planned Parenthood for a few months, and the stress of working at a facility that performs abortions has been too much for her. When she was hired for the position, she was clear about her Christian beliefs. She was told that managers don’t have to go out back and see what is going on. She was further told that her job duties would only be administrative and relegated to the front office.
Quickly, the anonymous caller learned that she would be seeing every aspect of the clinic as a manager.
The anonymous caller began crying as she described one room that was identified as the “products of conception” room, or POC. She explained that processing occurs in this room, and where “tissues or fetuses” are process.
“It’s not a tissue. It’s really bad. It is a baby,” She said. “There are legs, arms and eyes. There is a baby there.”
Ultrasound procedures are also very upsetting to this Planned Parenthood administrator. She described that the unborn child seems to be fighting back during the ultrasound.
The woman continued to cry during the interview.
“It’s murder,” she stated. “It’s called murder by pro-life people, and that’s exactly what it is.”
To add more insult to her woes, the woman also stopped going to church every week because she couldn’t face others about the job she does.
Dr. Brown told the distressed caller that God is still there at work, even more so. God’s grace is everywhere, and he further stated that the Holy Spirit was at work making her feel uncomfortable about her position at Planned Parenthood.
He told the caller that it is alright to make a wrong decision, as long as you work to correct the situation and find your way back to God. The caller sounded relieved when hearing these words, stating that she would be looking for new employment so that her job no longer went against her Christian beliefs.
There is a lesson for all Christians in this call. Even when we descend into the midst of sin, our merciful God always affords us the chance to walk back into the light.
