Woman feels like “lowlife” at abortion clinic

From a woman who had an abortion:

“I just didn’t have any dialogue with anyone other than the woman who woke me up to tell me it was time for me to leave. That’s the only person, other than the anesthesiologist. I don’t recall a dialogue that happened. I did remember that doctor’s name, so I suppose I may have talked with her. It pretty much felt like I got wheeled into this room, and this thing happened to me. I felt pretty much like I was lowlife. I felt like they were probably doing a lot of these, that I was just one more.”
