Abortion doula remembers woman who walked out

Abortion doula Whitney, who comforts women while their babies are killed in abortions, had an abortion herself. She remembers a woman walking out:

“She remembers that on the day of her own abortion, a patient walked out  – just decided she wasn’t going to do it. It struck Whitney, who was waiting patiently by the window in her medical gown and her hospital socks. She wondered what was going to happen with her.”

Mary Mahoney and Lauren Mitchell The Doulas: Radical Care for Pregnant People (New York: Feminist Press, 2016) 99

Sometimes women do change their minds at abortion clinics.
