Clinic worker on women and abortion pain

From one abortion provider:

“…Some women experience abortion as painful. How much so depends on factors such as gestational age of the pregnancy, type of procedure (suction or extraction), sedation used during surgery, available support, and mental preparedness. As a health worker I try to help clients become as calm as possible in order to diminish the fear which I believe increases physical pain. But the fact that abortion is sometimes painful is not reason enough to say a woman shouldn’t have one. “

One thought on “Clinic worker on women and abortion pain”

  1. Well to be fair, pretty much all women experience the alternative to abortion as painful… unless they have a c-section under general anesthesia.
