Woman asked about “individual” being aborted

A woman who had an abortion recalls the following conversation with the abortionist:

“I was in with the doctor, and I can still remember his face. I said, ‘I’m concerned about the individual that, you know, is being terminated.’ And he said, ‘Oh, they’re not individual yet.’ And that has set with me, because I have a background in Special Ed now. I know genetics and chromosomes, and you just don’t get the same match every time. Like the kid I had later is not the kid I aborted.”
