From a clinic worker’s notes:
Patient information: Single, Baptist, no children. Wants children. Using spermicidal foam and the rhythm method. Intends to use the Pill after abortion.
Before abortion: Nervous, realistic
During abortion: Mild pain
After abortion: Walked
Observations: Excellent patient. Pregnancy test was negative today, but Dr. L did not feel she should put off the VPT.[Voluntary Pregnancy Termination: A euphemism for abortion] Either way, he felt it would relieve anxiety. Rachel was given the choice to wait or have VPT done and decided to go ahead with VPT. She seemed a little upset, but decision was firm. Nice girl!
