Former abortion worker on how abortion affects workers

Joy Davis, a former abortion worker, wrote about her fellow clinic workers:

“We don’t have conversations. Sometimes the employees faint. Sometimes they throw up. Sometimes they have to leave the room. It’s just problems that we deal with, but it’s not talked about… If you really dwell on it, and talk about it all the time, then it gets more personal. It gets more real to you. You just don’t talk about it, try not to think about it… If [the abortionist] ever caught you discussing something like that, he’d fire you.”
