Late term abortion doctor: “You get burned out”

In an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about babies born alive after abortions, journalists Liz Jeffries and Rick Edmonds wrote of a doctor who did late term abortions. The article says:

“The psychological wear-and-tear from doing late abortions is obvious. Philadelphia’s Dr. Bolognese, who seven years ago was recommending wrapping abortion live-borns in a towel, has stopped doing late abortions.”

Dr. Bolognese is quoted saying:

”You get burned out…It seemed kind of schizophrenic, to be doing that on the one hand [helping women with problem pregnancies to have babies] and do abortions.”
