Abortion worker: I have ‘no qualms’ but sometimes ‘reality of it all hits you’

Marie Stafford, 50, has worked in the abortion field since 1989:

She has no children.

I was brought up a Roman Catholic to believe that life was sacred, but I have no qualms about abortion.

I feel strongly about the woman’s right to choose. …

[She came to her views partly because of friend who she says died of an illegal abortion]

However, there are times when the reality of it all hits you. When you are at the operation, particularly with the later terminations, it can be difficult. You might think: “Oh God, that’s a potential life.” But you learn to distinguish between the procedure itself and the need to support the woman’s right to choose….

I would have no qualms about having an abortion. …

You see a lot of trauma and tragedy. It’s awful when girls come to you when they have gone over the 24-week limit And sadly some GPs who are anti-abortion delay referring patients until it’s too late. .”…
