Abortion clinic worker explains why boyfriends are not allowed in procedure room

Abortion clinic worker Jackie explains why boyfriends and husbands were not allowed to be with their partners while they are having abortions:

“Patients did not bring their boyfriends, husbands, fathers, whoever were there to support, they could not bring that person into the back with them. So a lot of women were back there alone…..[Y]ou’re taking them back there to remove life from their body, you know, the nicest way to put it, you’ve taken away their support system and our office did that because [I remember] our office manager telling me very specifically it’s because these women want to have a big emotional moment with their partner in the procedure room after they had their abortion, and that takes up too much time. So they need to come out, go to recovery, and then they can have their big moment outside of the clinic or in the lobby out of the way.”
