The wife of a Baptist pastor in Montgomery defended herself over the weekend against criticism that she should not work at an abortion clinic.

“I feel that we have all sinned,” Callie Chatman, a certified medical technician at Reproductive Health Services in Montgomery told The Christian Post on Sunday. “None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don’t know why, other than that’s the only decision (having an abortion) that a woman could make. That’s her right to make that decision because that’s her body.”

Chatman is the wife of New Elam Baptist Church Pastor Louis Chatman, the Christian Post reported.

David Day Sr., a Mission Service Corps missionary with the North American Mission Board, last week posted a YouTube video he said showed Pastor Chatman dropping off his wife to work at the clinic.

“Sadly, this is a Montgomery pastor dropping off his wife who works at the (abortuary) here in Montgomery,” Day wrote in his description on the video. “We have spoken to her often and the only response we get is that God forgives and we are not to judge. Her husband is the pastor of New Elam Baptist Church. Her son works here as well as the security.”
