Woman Prepped for Abortion, Still Unsure

From an interview with a postabortion woman:

“When Donna arrived at the clinic with her boyfriend there were forms to fill out. The forms asked “Do you want counseling?” Donna replied, “Yes.” The forms also asked “Are you sure you want this abortion?” Donna replied, “No.”

Donna told me, “I wanted to know the facts about abortion. I wanted to know how it would affect me physically and mentally. I wanted to know if the fetus was human.”

Before Donna received any counseling, she, along with the other women, first paid for the abortion, had her blood test taken, was told to undress and given a hospital gown to wear. In other words, she was “prepped” for an abortion she had indicated on the form she wasn’t even sure she wanted!”
