Abortion counseling takes place in “stark” environment

A book meant to train abortion counselors remarks on how many abortion facilities have somewhat unpleasant rooms for women to sit in while having abortion counseling. The book says:

“Often…the counselor will be seeing a woman in a clinical setting, a stark room which is multi-purpose. Any agencies or purchasers of counselling services need to ask themselves, “Would I feel comfortable in this setting to talk about painful feelings connected with pregnancy?”
