In video footage the National Abortion Federation tried to suppress, conference panelists admit the horror of killing unborn babies.
Evidently, many abortionists cannot escape the psychological toll their violent work takes on them. NAF’s San Francisco conference focused on providing psychotherapeutic help for second trimester abortionists. Harris spoke at that conference as well, talking about “stigma” workshops she runs, in which abortion providers share their experiences. She laments the risks, mentioning ruptured family relationships and lost friendships, that come with disclosing what she and other abortionists do.
In a recently released Center for Medical Progress (CMP) video, a Michigan Planned Parenthood executive encourages her colleagues to stop “denying the reality” of pro-life images of aborted babies and start acknowledging abortion does involve violence and the killing of persons. In the video, leading abortion providers and educators confide to each other that their ability to remain on the job depends on finding ways to deal with their workplace horrors.
The surprising confessions came during an April 7, 2013, Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan (PPMSM) workshop and an April 7, 2014, National Abortion Federation (NAF) conference in San Francisco. CMP undercover investigators documented the two events in more than two hours of clandestine recordings.

But then a congressional staffer code named “Patriot Geist” reportedly leaked the footage to GotNews.com. Morrison & Foerster responded by suing GotNews.com and its editor-in-chief, Charles Johnson, demanding he turn over any documents that point to his alleged communication with CMP Director David Daleiden.
