Uber Driver “Canned” for Refusing to Drive Woman to Abortion Clinic

The destination I put in was just the name of the doctor and the address of the clinic, there was nothing that would suggest it was an abortion clinic. After a few more minutes he asked, “are we going to an abortion clinic?”

The 20 year old student’s appointment for the murder of her unborn child was set for 11:30 am. As usual (owning a car on campus is to expensive), she called for a Uber to take her and the unborn child in her womb to the intended destination, an abortion clinic. The driver arrived at 9:58 am. Once in the car, the student noticed the driver, “he immediately seemed uncomfortable.”

The young woman knew the destination.

The Uber driver knew the destination.

After about five minutes in the car, he asked, “are we going to a planned parenthood?” I said no (because we weren’t), but it set off alarm bells that he would even ask that. 

The unborn child in the young woman’s womb did not know the destination – a murder-mill.

Recounting her story:

I was shocked; I had no idea what to say, so I just remained quiet. He then said “I know it’s none of my business, but…” and proceeded to mention something about his wife being pregnant, how awful the procedure was (and proceeded to explain it in graphic detail), and that “there is so much they don’t tell you”. He then said “you’re going to regret this decision for the rest of your life” and that I was making a mistake.

The driver saw an opportunity to persuade the young woman from aborting her child. When it became apparent that no matter what he said to her, whether graphic descriptions of the abortion process or the regrets she’d have later for aborting her unborn child, he was not going to change her mind. She was intent on aborting the child she carried in her womb.

The following is her description of what happened next:

It took all of my strength not to start crying but I managed to keep it together by looking out the window and avoiding his gaze. After we were about halfway to the destination, he suddenly pulls over with no warning. There was a gas station and a closed antiques store, and around us was farmland and forest. He said “I’m sorry, but I can’t take you the rest of the way. I can take you back to [my city], but you won’t be able to find another Uber out here.”
I got out of the car and immediately started crying. I called my parents each three times but they didn’t pick up. Then I called my boyfriend and he picked up right away. He managed to calm me down and told me to let the clinic know what was happening and to call some local cab companies.
My Uber driver hung around for about 10-15 minutes and asked once more if I wanted to go back with him and I declined. 

The distraught young woman, although an hour late to her appointment, carried out the murder of her unborn child at the abortion clinic.

She would also call Uber and the police to report the driver.

Uber fired the driver despite excellent ratings from previous customers. However, losing his job was not enough for the woman – no – she intends to sue Uber.

As one reader of the post the young woman made on Reddit early this month advised her in the quest to sue Uber for a driver who attempted to dissuade her from murder:

The thing about Uber that they’ve been very careful to keep in their books is that their drivers aren’t Employees. They’re independent individuals who just all happen to use the app that Uber as a technology company makes. Part of that is the right to deny service for any reason as long as its not based on a protected class characteristic. Which wanting an abortion doesn’t fall under (the applicable conditions are Race, Sex, Gender, Sexual Orientation (depends on area), disability, and Age).
So while Uber will probably reimburse you they really can’t take any action against him other than termination of his ability to use their app.

Uber ‘canned’ the driver when what he wanted was to help a young woman keep her unborn child from ending up in a trash can.


FRIENDS—We’ll get straight to the point:

We’re better than Wikipedia.

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
