On old textbook on abortion published in 1977 gives the following instructions to abortionists:

“Psychiatric problems are extremely important to uncover before the patient undergoes [a] clinic abortion…There are enough problems inherent in interrupting a pregnancy without adding the risk of hysterical reactions that can mimic serious medical conditions.”
