Abortion textbook: abortion minded women may still want to protect the baby

In a textbook for future abortion providers, it states that some women may decide on abortion and yet still want to protect their babies from harmful substances. These women would make an abortion appointment, but still avoid drinking or doing drugs that could damage the baby:

“Women who know they want to end a pregnancy can nevertheless be reluctant to take anything that could be harmful to a foetus.”

Joanna Brien, Ida Fairbairn Pregnancy and Abortion Counseling (London: Routledge, 1996) 27

this seems to indicate a certain amount of ambivalence.
