Catholic nurse has no qualms about abortion

16 weeks- a "potential" life?

16 weeks- a “potential” life?

Marie Stafford, 50, a nurse who has worked in the abortion field since 1989 (interview was from 1996)

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. …

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. .”

AnnBarrowclough “ABORTION; THIS IS WHAT OUR NURSES REALLY THINK…” Sunday Mirror (London, England)  Aug 18, 1996
