Dr. Lisa Perriera, abortionist at Preterm, an abortion clinic in Cleveland:
“[On the heartbeat bill]. It would have presented a lot of issues. It would’ve required women to travel to other places to have abortions if they wanted to have them. But the patients that I care for are of so little means already, it would have forced them to continue their pregnancy. We would have had a lot more women that are having babies that don’t want to have them.”

The Heartbeat Bill was a proposed pro-life law that would have banned abortion after the heart of the baby can be heard in the clinic. Although the heart begins beating at 21 days or so, instruments cannot detect the heartbeat until somewhat later. However, this law would have criminalized all but the very earliest abortions.
This abortionist clearly laments the fact that babies might be born who would otherwise be aborted. Preventing abortions, in her view,seems to be the wrong thing to do. She laments the fact that women would have their babies and reveals a proabortion mindsetShare on Facebook
