Abortion worker describes abortion as “attacking her vagina”

From one abortion worker:

“The woman’s lying there, half naked, in a vulnerable position; the doctor is attacking her vagina; you are sitting there, holding her hand – in a weird way you feel like you’re involved in a sexual encounter.”

Carole Joffe The Regulation of Sexuality: Experiences of Family-Planning Workers (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1986) 112
