Joy Pinto is a pastor and she also runs the badly misnamed Her Choice Birmingham Women’s Center in Alabama. She spoke at this year’s National Right to Life Convention and showed just how much respect she has for the women — she calls them the “wreckage of humanity” — who come there:
“There is a war on women, but we are not the ones waging the war….I have the privilege on a daily basis – being the director of a pregnancy medical center — to see the wreckage of humanity that walks in my door because they have bit the apple. They have believed the lie that this government, that all the politics and even some churches, tell them that it’s ok to go use contraceptions, it’s ok to use abortion as a backup birth control and then we get to see how they’re suffering emotionally, psychologically, physically, spiritually.”
Well I can certainly see why women would want to walk through those doors, don’t you? By the way, she’s lying when she calls it a “pregnancy medical center.” It performs no medicine whatsoever. It’s a so-called “crisis pregnancy center” (i.e. an anti-abortion propaganda center) with support groups and little else.
