“A compassionate and sensitive sonographer should remember to turn the screen away from the plane of view [of the patient]. Staff too may find themselves increasingly disturbed by the repeated visual impact of an aspect of their work that they need to partially deny in order to continue to function optimally and to concentrate on the needs of the women who come to them for help.”

Transcript excerpts from a talk entitled “Abortion Update” (talk no. 1065), given by Dr. Sally Faith Dorfman, director of Family Planning, Development, and Research at Albert Einstein Medical College in New York, at the American Public Health Conference, November 18, 1985, in Washington, D.C. Recorded by Robert G. Marshall, director of research, Castello Institute.

  1. It’s a disturbing fact that pro-choice advocates and those that work in the abortion industry want nothing more than to keep women in the dark about the magnitude of the decision pregnant women considering/seeking abortion are faced with. As though they’re more concerned about exterminating another life than encouraging a well thought out decision based on all the evidence provided…. I’m referring to the TRUTH of the whole matter. People, knowledge is empowering. Get some!
