Social worker: I give credit to women who have 4 abortions

8 weeks. Most abortions are done around this time.

From one social worker:

“Sometimes people who have 3 or 4 or 5 abortions are failing in every other area of their lives in terms of being victimized. And they’re taking such responsibility in making these decisions – where they don’t feel they have control in any other area – to have an abortion… I give these women a lot of credit… And it doesn’t matter how many times a woman has had an abortion, it only matters in her own eyes and her own value system. The last thing women who are having more than one abortion need is to feel judged… In some cases [they] are doing a great job making decisions when they don’t feel much control in other parts of their lives.”
