In an article about abortionists and clinic workers:
“Providers also reflected on differences between language used inside the clinic and accepted pro-choice rhetoric. Some noted that during clinical encounters, they attempt to “meet their patients where they are” by using the words the patients use, such as baby instead of the more clinical term fetus.”

Willie Parker, who commits abortions up to 24 weeks, claims that the biblical story of the Good Samaritan convinced him to do abortions.
“In listening to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King, I came to a deeper understanding of my spirituality, which places a higher value on compassion. King said what made the good Samaritan ‘good’ is that instead of focusing on [what] would happen to him by stopping to help the traveler, he was more concerned about what would happen to the traveler if he didn’t stop to help. I became more concerned about what would happen to these women if I, as an obstetrician, did not help them.”
“the traumatic results of adoptions with the comparatively simple remedy of early, safe abortion. In my view, there is no contest… Adoption is a violent act, a political act of aggression toward a woman who has supposedly offended the sexual mores by committing the unforgivable act of not suppressing her sexuality.”

Below: Abortion at 10 weeks. Is it really adoption that is violent?
“A gynecologist told me that he was once called to assist at a center for the termination of pregnancies in the North of England. The woman had just had a termination and was bleeding to death. The gynecologist turned up with his colleagues in the ambulance and as they led the lady away on the stretcher the director of the organization said reassuringly to the doctors:
“You know, over the last 30 years we have performed 120,000 abortions in this clinic and never once lost a life.”

Diane, a clinic worker, says that not that many men accompany women to their abortions:
“But not all that many men come. Maybe one out of four women has a man with her or waiting at the end. I’d say about two out of four come with a woman friend. And although we push them to have someone with them, about one out of four women insists on coming alone.”

What a terrible, lonely experience it must be for a woman who has no one to go with her!
Dr. John Parsons, in an interview from Kings College Hospital, London, The Universe, Sunday, March 2, 1997:
“The pro-life movement is having a negative impact on abortion. Sometimes women change their minds on the operating table and then we lose money! We have to run a cost-effective termination service. We have abortion on request now. It’s what I believe and what I practice. A woman has a right to abort – whether it’s to go on a skiing holiday or whether the fetus is disabled.”
