Woman compares her abortion to incest

In a book by a Planned Parenthood worker, a woman named Lisa comments on how painful her abortion was and how it brought on negative emotions:

“My abortion was physically painful. My body doesn’t react well to being invaded – it’s incest stuff. I really think it was emotional pain being put on the physical level because I didn’t know where else to put it.”
