Innocent comment prompts abortion worker to quit

Julie worked in an abortion clinic, and saw the torn apart bodies of aborted babies daily. One day, an acquaintance, who did not know she worked at an abortion clinic, asked her a question that hit her hard. The acquaintance mistakenly thought she helped deliver babies.  From The American Feminist:

“Shortly before making the decision to leave, Julie experienced an internal jolt from a casual comment. The mother of a man she was dating, not knowing much about her job, once said, “It must be so neat to be around all those babies!… After Julie left the clinic, she spent years working with preemies and loved it.”

Many abortion workers hide what they do, due to stigma, or at least refrain from talking about their jobs to people they do not know well.
