Resident talks about abortion stigma

In a Glamour magazine article, an OB/GYN resident says that she sees the abortion stigma in school administrators, faculty, and their peers who give the impression that:

“abortion is a sleazy and offensive procedure… A doctor who does abortions – even if they are only a small part of her practice – is known as an abortionist. This label is supposed to be the kiss of death for any professional hopes she might have.”

Anonymous “Why I Am an Abortionist” Glamour October 1993

Quoted in Mark Crutcher Lime 5: Exploited by Choice (Denton, Texas: Life Dynamics, Inc., 1996) 178
