Former abortion worker describes gossip and jealousy

A former abortion clinic worker quoted by Abby Johnson says:

“We’ve all had them: one of those days, the type of day that causes us to seek refuge in the safety of our homes, curl up in a chair with our fuzzy blankets, and pretend that tomorrow will never come; that we won’t have to deal with a coworker’s passive aggressive behavior, hear the latest chapter in the never-ending drama of so-and-so’s life, or endure another lecture from an unreasonable and out of touch supervisor.

During my years at the abortion clinic, I had more than my share of those days, for all of the aforementioned reasons and more… Gossip, slander, jealousy, and general cattiness were simply par for the course.”

Perhaps the pressure of seeing aborted babies every day causes clinic workers to be stressed and irritable.
