Abortionist Speaks of Poor Conditions in Clinic

Abortionist who switched from performing the occasional abortion in his office to working in an abortion clinic said the following:

“I’d never worked in a clinic. I’d always had my own private practice and run my own show… I was accustomed to operating in a very serious room with caps and gowns and masks and scrubbing for every procedure and to suddenly go in and there’d be a patient up in stirrups with no drape… It was a shocker. And I thought, were bound to have some calamities, we’re going to have some accidents, it’s just bound to happen. And it was like just walking on egg shells.”
