Thanks to our 60+ volunteers and to Ann Makar for organizing their schedules; Larry, John Paul and David Scheese for obtaining part of the exhibit from the Beaverton affiliate of Oregon RTL; Tina Bock for taking down the exhibit on the last night; again the Scheese family for making a return trip to Beaverton; Gerry Parmantier for helping Ann and the Scheese family. Our RTL colleagues in Beaverton have a 3 day fair and wondered about our 10 day fair exhibit: "How do you do it?" Now you know.
June 20, Monday, 5:30 - 6:15 at the Cascade Park Library Community Room. "A former abortion clinic owner looks at abortion." Why did Carol Everett get into the abortion industry...why did she stay...why did she leave? Over 20 people attended this presentation...over half were high school/college age. Carol Everett's presentation of abortion techniques using the actual tools of the trade and letting the audience use their imaginations was very effective. She herself was forced to abort her third child by her husband and doctor. This led to a divorce and she started working in an abortion business and then ended up owning several. In 6 years she "witnessed" about 35, 000 abortions including one mother's death (never reported) and 18 hysterectomies and/or colostomies. Two most common questions women and girls asked before the abortion: is it a baby and will it hurt. Her answer: no and no. She wanted to become a millionaire. Now she wants to share her story so others can make an "informed" decision. The MC of the event, Gerry Parmantier, RN (retired) suggested one website for follow up: Abortion is the UnChoice unwanted, unsafe, unfair.
