Clinic Workers Discouraged from Long Counseling Sessions with Patients

A clinic worker said the following about counseling at her clinic:

“At the clinic where I worked, abortion counselors were discouraged by the management from engaging in long sessions with clients or staying with them during their abortions. If we took our time or we left our offices, the clinic slowed down, and the average waiting time could creep up to two hours or more.”
