Clinic worker feels “sorrow” at abortions

Sallie Tisdale, abortion clinic nurse:

“How can you stand it? Even the clients ask. They see the machine, the strange instruments, the blood, and the final stroke that wipes away the promise of pregnancy. Sometimes I see that too. I watch a woman’s swollen abdomen sink to softness in a few stuttering moments and my own belly flip-flops with sorrow.”

Sallie Tisdale “We Do Abortions Here” Harpers Magazine October 1987
