Clinic worker on seeing a late term abortion for the first time

Abortion clinic worker Pippa Jennings:

“The first time I attended a late termination it was upsetting. I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t sometimes question what I was doing. But above all I believe that the woman must come first. In fact, I feel so strongly about this that when I was 20 weeks pregnant, I assisted in an NHS termination when all my colleagues refused on moral and religious grounds. …

I don’t look at it as the taking away a life because embryos cannot sustain life outside the womb. If women could not have abortions, what would happen to the thousands of unwanted babies?”
