Abortionist comments on women’s pain during abortion

Dr. Henry Morgantaler did thousands of abortions in Canada. He comments on women’s pain during abortions:

“While pain is generally minimal as a result of local anesthesia of the cervix, it may be felt as intense or severe by a small minority. This could be due to a partial ineffectiveness of the local anesthesia or be a reflection of the pain threshold of the patient. People’s susceptibility to pain varies enormously and some people withstand even small amounts of pain very poorly.

It is well-known that when anxiety is high, pain will be felt more intensely.”
