Researchers discussed the emotional impact of abortion on providers:
“in Hawaii, McDermott and Char reported that “the nurses themselves felt that they had replaced the illicit underground abortionists in other cities, and, like them, they were personally involved in the slicing and chopping up of “babies” (the word they used to describe expelled fetal parts and fetuses)
Kibel reported nightmares in nurses who had participated in many abortions… he concluded that “regardless of one’s religious or philosophic orientation, the unconscious view of abortion remains the same… that unconsciously the act of abortion was experienced as an act of murder….
Physicians are no more immune. Many countries have reported increased depressive reactions and breakdowns among their guilt ridden doctors.”
