Abortion worker: if you wanted this baby, you wouldn’t be crying

Author Bayla Ostrach interviewed abortion workers and women seeking abortions. She wrote about an abortion clinic worker named Jorge. Jorge “counseled” women who were ambivalent about going through with their abortions. Ostrach writes that Jorge:

“routinely tells women “if this were a pregnancy you could continue, you wouldn’t be here crying, right?”
