Abortion clinic worker: It felt like an assembly line

A clinic worker at Northern Women’s Clinic, a privately owned abortion clinic in New England said:

“We began to feel we were on an assembly line. You have no real contact with the whole woman… One person prepped her, one took tests, one did counseling… We couldn’t give the abortion patient enough time. When we really tried to get into people’s feelings about the abortion, the management ridiculed us.”
