Secrets of the Abortion Industry
An Interview with Carol Everett, Former Abortion Center Director
Carol Everett was involved in the abortion industry
in the Dallas, Texas area from 1977 to 1983. As director of four abortion
centers, and owner of two, Carol was responsible for the centers’ daily
operation. Carol, who had an abortion soon after it became legal in 1973,
now speaks out on what she saw in the abortion industry:
Q: What is the governing force behind the abortion industry?
A: Money. It is a very lucrative business. It is the largest unregulated
industry in our nation. Most of the clinics are run in chains because it
is so profitable.
Q: In what way is the woman deceived?
A:: Every woman has two questions, “Is it a baby?” and “Does it hurt?”
The abortionist must answer, “NO.” He/she must lie to
secure the consent of the woman and the collection of the clinic’s
fee. The women were told that we were dealing with a “product of conception”
or a “glob of tissue.” They were told that there would be only slight cramping;
whereas, in reality, abortion is excruciatingly painful.
Q: What type of counseling was offered at the clinics?
A: We didn’t do any real counseling. We sold abortion.
Q: How did you dispose of aborted babies?
A: We put them down the garbage disposal. Some second and third trimester
babies’ muscle structure is so strong that the baby will not come
apart, so they must be disposed of through trash receptacles.
Q: Abortion is supposed to be a “safe” experience. What complications
did you witness?
A: In the last 18 months I was in the business, we were completing more
than 500 abortions monthly and killing or maiming one
woman out of 500. Common complications that take place are perforations
or tears in the uterus. Many of those result in
The doctor might cut or harm the urinary tract,
which then requires surgical repair. A complication that is rarely publicized
the one in which the doctor perforates the uterus and pulls the bowels
through the vagina, resulting in a colostomy. Some of those can be reversed,
but some women must live with the colostomy for the rest of their lives.
Q: Why did you get out of the abortion business?
A: Two things came into play at the same time. I experienced a profoundly
religious transformation – a conversion. At about the
time I was having second thoughts, a Dallas television station did
an exposé disclosing the abortions performed at my clinic on non-pregnant
women – all for money! I finally realized, “We weren’t helping women, we
were destroying them – and their children.” By then, my transformation
was complete and I knew that I not only had to stop being involved with
abortions, but I had to help promote the truth.
