Abortion worker describes abortion as “a woman’s pain”

A man whose partner had an abortion called the clinic to ask about counseling for them  both:

“The receptionist told me when I phoned [the abortion clinic], and asked if counseling was available: “It’s the woman’s pain, and not the man’s, so you can’t get any counseling here, even if you wanted… Unless your partner is willing to have you sit in, while she is being counseled.”
