Marie Bain insists she’s a private woman, the kind of person who keeps her opinions to herself. But she’s also an entertainer.
Which is why, she says, she developed "Baby Killer," a one-woman show based on her experiences last fall being fired from teaching drama at Loretto High School because of her previous tenure as a Planned Parenthood volunteer.
Nothing like a shocking title to jump-start the controversy again. So much for a quiet, private life.
"I come from show business," says Bain. "You need to get people’s attention. The title comes from … what they scream at us at the clinics. Extremists say horrible things to everybody. People don’t get that.

Maybe people don’t get that calling someone a baby killer on their way to escort a women to have her baby killed should be seen as more horrible than the act itself. Not that I think screaming at someone is the most prudent way to help to change their mind, but it is certainly and act much less in magnitude than being the willing cooperator to escort someone to have their innocent child killed.
The teacher probably was able to spend some time to write her play since she received a settlement from the Catholic school for having the audacity to fire an abortion escort working in the Catholic school. Not that the school would probably have taken the action without the Bishop stepping in in the first place.
