Abortion worker finds job “draining and exhausting”

One abortion clinic worker said the following in a book on abortion counseling intended to be read by abortion workers :

“I find [working in the abortion clinic] draining and exhausting, I become tired to the point where I do not want to relate to anyone, especially my family who may be in need of emotional support. I feel I sometimes suffer from burnout.”

Joanna Brien, Ida Fairbairn Pregnancy and Abortion Counseling (London: Routledge, 1996) 169
