GUEST POST: Today on Explicitly Pro-Life, the podcast hosted by SFLA president Kristan Hawkins, past abortionist and current Director of Medical Affairs and Education at 40 Days for Life Dr. Haywood Robinson discusses how a relationship with Jesus transformed how he thought about abortion.
During his medical residency, Dr. Robinson received training in abortion while working in OBGYN. He tells in the podcast of how his training did not include any abortion alternatives but instead made it seem that abortion was normal. He began working in the abortion facility on the side during residency, which is where he met his wife, Noreen, who was also an abortionist. It was not until both had an encounter with Jesus that they recognized abortion for what it truly was – the killing of an innocent human life. After this turning point, both Haywood and Noreen became advocates for the pro-life movement. Today, Dr. Haywood Robinson helps to head a leading pro-life organization, 40 Days for Life.
Dr. Robinson encourages the Pro-Life Generation to speak the truth unashamedly as we must reject the false narrative that we are the minority or that we are standing alone in this movement. We may need to inconvenience ourselves and our own schedules in order to make a difference and reach those hurting from abortion or contemplating abortion. Dr. Robinson challenges listeners to reach out and seek opportunities to share truth amidst the lies of our pro-abortion society that he once bought into.
Anyone considering a career in medicine can find encouragement from Dr. Robinson’s example of standing for life and recognizing that pregnancy is not a disease and abortion is simply not medicine.
Hawkins also highlights the example of Canadian medical students and physicians being “agents of the state” as they are forced to take part in abortions despite any personal objections on the issue. Physicians in the U.S. have the opportunity to stand on truth and allow it to guide their practices unlike those practicing within socialized medicine.
