Preacher’s Wife Works at Local Abortion Clinic, She Says “God’s a Forgiving God”

Callie Chatman’s Linkedin page says that she is a licensed, ordained Minister New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Callie’s bio also states that she worked as a Youth Minister and Adult Sunday School Teacher and she assists the pastor in any means necessary.
According to a pro-life activist who side walk counsels outside an abortion clinic in Montgomery, Callie Chatman indeed works for Reproductive Health Services abortion clinic in Montgomery. A video uploaded by pro-life activist David Day, allegedly shows that Callie’s husband, Pastor Louis Chatman of New Elam Baptist Church (below), dropping his wife off at the abortion clinic.
Ironically, David Day, Sr., told Christian News Network that Chatman has worked at Reproductive Health Services for years, along with her son Jerome, who is employed as a security guard at the location.
“I was stunned that there is actually a pastor’s wife that works there,” Day said. “I can’t image this pastor whose wife works at the clinic and his people not knowing.”
“I’ve spoken to her one-on-one, and she tells me that women know what they’re doing—they know what [abortion] is—but she says that there’s no sin greater [than God’s forgiveness], that we’re not to judge and that God forgives,” he outlined. “It’s always the same thing: We’re not to judge and God forgives. There’s none of us without sin, is what she says.”
Chatman’s work is no secret, she was mentioned in an Esquire article about another abortionist who claims to be a Christian, Willie Parker. The article stated:
- Right across is the recovery room, empty now. An elderly black woman named Callie Chatman sits waiting for the women to emerge from surgery. She’s a youth minister at a local Baptist church, where her husband is the pastor. She serves here as an exit counselor.
“You know, preacher been teaching that the wages of sin is death,” she says. “Not many of them know that God is a forgiving God. So if they ask me if I think they’ll go to hell, I tell them what Jesus say: ‘I do not condemn thee. Go and sin no more.’ I tell them not to make the same mistake—and how not to make the same mistake.”
Not one woman has told her that she thought abortion was okay, she adds. “What they have told me is it’s the last resort. And I am here to let them know that God will meet you right where you are. And then I ask them to accept Christ as their lord and savior.”
A couple women have accepted, she says, right here in the recovery room.
It is difficult to imagine that anyone who calls themselves a Christian could work in a place that kills God’s children.
“Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles? ’Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Matthew 7
