Annual Life Banquet

October 7 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Each year, we gather together at our Life Banquet to celebrate our accomplishments and renew our mission to stop abortion, one life at a time.  We are pleased to announce this year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Haywood Robinson, Former Abortionist and 40 Days for Life National Director, Medical Affairs and Education. In addition to hearing Dr. Robinson’s compelling testimony, you will be encouraged as you hear our Baby Saved testimonials and 2024 Ministry Update by C.E.O., Brian Gibson.

Dr. Haywood Robinson has always been driven by helping people live in the healthiest way possible. But when he didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, he thought that serving others involved performing abortions. His story shows how a relationship with Jesus and knowledge about the medical world can fundamentally change how one views abortion.

During his residency, Dr. Robinson received abortion training while on the obstetrics and gynecology service. Discussion regarding the ethics of these procedures or instruction regarding alternatives was not part of the training. Performing abortion requires so little effort, everyone was doing it, and they didn’t seem to have a problem with it, so why should he? His experience provided the opportunity for him to meet Noreen Johnson, who later would become his wife. As their relationship progressed, “moonlighting” together in abortion clinics was commonplace. Money became a mutual motivator, especially since the pay was substantial. It was quite evident how abortion training could be profitable.

Shortly after marriage and completing their residency programs, Dr. Robinson and Dr. Johnson, came to the saving knowledge of Christ. They were soon convicted by God’s word which exposed the living lie they led as hired killers of preborn children. The couple stopped performing abortions, but continued practicing medicine together.  They retired in 2019. Dr. Johnson passed away in August 2021 due to illness complications. The book they coauthored, The Scalpel and the Soul: Our Radical Transformation as Husband and Wife Abortion Doctors was released posthumously in June 2023.  Copies of the book will be available at the banquet.

Dr. Robinson earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the California Institute of Technology, followed by a Medical Doctor degree at the University of California at Irvine, and a family practice residency at Martin Luther King/Charles R. Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Since his salvation in 1986, Dr. Robinson has been a voice for the pro-life movement. Today, Dr. Robinson shares his testimony worldwide to expose the facts of the abortion industry and to be a voice for the unborn.

Dr. Robinson was blessed to find love again. On Valentine’s Day 2023 he and the former Daphne Harris Nicely, LAS were wed. Daphne Robinson is the Founding Executive Director of Atlanta Morning Center (ATLMC), which provides Christ-centered prenatal and postpartum medical care, support, education, and advocacy at no charge for women experiencing healthcare insecurity. Together, Dr. and Mrs. Robinson serve internationally and collaborate in family, life, pregnancy care, abortion recovery, and reconciliation ministry, as well as medical missions. Collectively, they have eight living children, 13 children that have preceded them in death, six grandchildren, and one great grandchild.
