Some women are unsure about their decision, says abortionist

Dr Philip Goldstone, abortionist, medical director of Mary Stopes Australia:

“I see women who I think fall into three groups. The majority of women have found out that they have an unplanned pregnancy and they know that it is not the right time for them in their life and they know that they need to have a termination. Some women are very comfortable with that decision. Other women are very sure of that decision, but are upset about the decision that they are sure about. There is a smaller group of women who are unsure of the decision and they are the women who need further decision-making counselling. …. Most women we see, by the time they come to the clinic, are sure of their decision and they will have varying emotional responses to the decision that they have come to.”
