Clinic worker “my heart breaks” because some women can’t kill their children

The Abortioneers is a blog written by abortion clinic workers. One clinic worker discusses what happens when women miss their abortion appointments because of natural disasters:

“When Hurricane Katrina hit I was working in the South at an abortion clinic. I remember hearing stories through our networks of women desperately trying to find an abortion clinic after they were evacuated because the hurricane caused them to miss their appointment. … At my clinic when there were a few times we were forced to close due to circumstances beyond our control, we would “freeze” the fee for women so that they did not have to pay the extra money it would cost them to wait a week. That is one thing clinics can do, but what about women who have reached the limit of what is legal in their state? What happens to them? My heart breaks for any woman who tried to get an abortion this past weekend and will now have to carry to term. I wonder if they see this Hurricane as a sign that they were not meant to abort?… I am exhausted and sad just thinking about it.”

This clinic worker is “exhausted” and “sad” at the thought that some women might decide to keep their children instead of aborting them. Her heart breaks that babies like the one below might be allowed to live and grow up rather than being torn apart by abortion clinic instruments.

Unborn baby at 9 weeks. Over 40% of all abortions are done after this point, in the 10th week or beyond.  This is the age of the average aborted child.
