Jillian Schlesinger says Scientology now 'sneakier' about forcing abortions - 2014-03-24
At our request, Karen de la Carriere hurried to prepare part two of her interview series with Jillian Schlesinger, a woman who defected from Scientology's inner "Sea Org" just a few weeks ago. (See yesterday's remarkable Part One of the series.)
In this segment, Jillian talks about the snitching culture in Scientology, and about how pregnancies are still discouraged in the Sea Org. (See our big story about the lawsuit of Laura DeCrescenzo, who is suing Scientology over her forced abortion.)
"If you do get pregnant...they won't make you have an abortion like they used to," she said, and attributed it to the watchdogs that have gotten that news out about Scientology. But although things have changed, people are still encouraged to terminate pregnancies. "It's more sneaky," Jillian says.
