Pep talks needed by abortion nurses

One abortionist describes how nurses need pep talks to keep them in the abortion business:

Nurses who work in abortion clinics often don’t have a high sense of professional self-esteem. It’s not the sort of thing you brag about. “What do you do?” “Oh, I work at an abortion clinic.” Sometimes I have to give them a little pep talk. You’ll often find that after doing, say, 20 abortions, nurses can feel quite dejected. You have to help them along, tell them that they have made 20 women very happy that day.

It’s not hard to understand why many abortion workers feel “dejected” after helping a doctor perform abortions. They have to see and dismember babies like the one below all day, every day.
