‘Reframing evil actions as spiritual transcendence’

California Catholic Daily exclusive

By C. Topeth

In December 2016, Debbie Bamberger, a nurse and employee of Planned Parenthood in the Bay Area, wrote a piece called “The Spirituality of Abortion” for the Jewish Relations Community Council and it was publicly posted.

Bamberger is one of the Planned Parenthood nurses who was trained by Planned Parenthood doctors to perform surgical abortions under a California law allowing non-physicians to perform the procedure.

In her article for the Jewish Relations Community Council, Bamberger reminds readers that she wrote a previous story revealing her own abortions when she was in her 20s and states she was trying to dispel the stigma of shame associated with abortion.

Bamberger’s article has now been answered by Cecily Routman of the Jewish ProLife Foundation in a June 9 letter to Bamberger and her rabbi, Menachem Creditor of Congregation Netivot Shalom in Berkeley.

“Debbie (Bambergere), our condolences to you for the loss of your two children through the violence of abortion.,” wrote Routman. “These precious members of the unified soul of Israel were just two of the 300 Jewish children lost to abortion every week in the United States. We feel the loss of each and every one.”

“Helping to assuage the guilt of Jewish abortion providers by reframing evil actions as spiritual transcendence makes a mockery of the Jewish martyrs who chose self sacrifice rather than sacrifice their love of G-d and Judaism,” Routman wrote.

  1. Nurse Debbie is trying to justify her own two abortions, plain and simple. Her guilt is real and working for PP, encouraging others to kill their unborn children as she did will never wash away her pain. If there is “spirituality” in abortion, what pray tell, does Ms. Bamberger see in the Holocaust?

  2. Many thanks to Cecily Routman for her beautiful life-affirming response.

    Hitler would have LOVED the SICK “Death Nurse,” Debbie Bamberger! No more Jewish babies in the world– Hitler’s SATANIC DREAM!! Hitler did not allow any pregnant Jewish women, in his Death Camps– he ordered abortions for them all– and in many cases, these mothers-to-be were also the first to be killed!! SICK!! What a HORRIFIC second Holocaust, for Jews!! SHAME on “Nurse Debbie!!” God bless Cecily Routman!!
