Textbook for abortion workers describes how women see their babies

A textbook for abortion workers to help them counsel women says:

“….everyone has their own individual way of seeing a foetus.

Individual descriptions [of the baby] range all the way from saying, “it’s only blood, isn’t it?” to others talking of a fully-fledged baby complete with gender and personality. An abortion involves letting other people physically invade the client’s body and take away whatever the client has constructed as being her pregnancy.”
