Woman who had abortion: “there was no counseling”

Pro-choice author Cara J. Marianna compiled a collection of women’s abortion testimonies for a book. One woman says:

“I had to [travel to another town for the abortion]. I remember going once and, thinking back now, there wasn’t any question from the nurses there about, ‘Do I want to keep this child?’ It was just assumed that this is what I’m going to do. There wasn’t any counseling otherwise or questions about it.”
