The abortion clinic never suggested alternatives

A woman who tried to abort her baby twice and was later glad the abortions failed (read her story here)  wrote about how clinic workers never suggested any other option to her. There was, apparently, no counselling at the abortion facility she went to. She says:

“What I saw at that private clinic also totally shocked me. I expected to see young girls on their own waiting in the abortion clinic. Instead it was like a cattle market – full of women of all ages – many with their husbands and partners encouraging them to go through with it.

I couldn’t help wondering why all of these women – many seemingly in relationships – were ending their pregnancies.… although the staff at the clinic were lovely, no one even suggested there may be a different way forward.”
