The nurse made insensitive jokes

Marcie Schneider writes about her abortion:

“I continued to have sex and became pregnant for the second time, less than six months after my first abortion. This time I had a friend who was also pregnant, so we went to the abortion clinic together. … I remember everything about that day. I remember looking at the doctor’s face, and I remember that he never spoke a word. I remember how it felt looking around the cold, impersonal recovery room and seeing the rows of beds occupied by girls and women like me. I remember the nurse who went from bed to bed, making insensitive comments and jokes.”

She had a third abortion a year later, and now deeply regrets her abortions .
