1 in 4 women come to abortion facility alone

Diane, a clinic worker, says that not that many men accompany women to their abortions:

“But not all that many men come. Maybe one out of four women has a man with her or waiting at the end. I’d say about two out of four come with a woman friend. And although we push them to have someone with them, about one out of four women insists on coming alone.”
