During a workshop sponsored by the national Abortion Federation, one nurse described her horror as an abortionist she worked for pulled out a cannula and a tiny foot was attached to it.
Judith Fetrow, a former clinic worker from SanFrancisco, revealed that in her experience, "clinic workers have very mixed emotions about abortion…..Clinic workers may say they support a woman's right to choose, but they will also say that they do not want to see tiny hands and tiny feet. They do not want to be faced with the consequences of their actions….There is a great difference between the intellectual support of a woman's right to choose and the actual participation in the carnage of
abortion. Because seeing body parts bothers the workers."
"If the abortion is well done, we don't have to watch the baby die. So we inject a salt solution. The result is like putting salt on a slug, but we don't have to watch it." -- Dr. Russell Sacco, M.D.
"... [abortion] is still the dark side of medicine." -- Morris Wortman, Abortionist
Democrat and Chronicle, July 5. 1992
"[The few doctors willing to replace those who are retiring are] mostly physicians who have had difficulty establishing regular ob-gyn practices." Mentioning a clinic in Nebraska where a young doctor was brought in to replace an older one, "Out of his first six months of work, there are nine malpractice suits ... After it was apparent the guy was a klutz, they kept using him, and trying to cover for him, because they couldn't find another provider." -- Robert Crist, Abortionist
St. Petersburg Times, June 3, 1990
"In obstetrics and gynecology, the term abortionist is still a dirty word." Joe Thompson, Retired Abortionist
South Bend Tribune, December 26, 1992
"It's true that abortion providers are perceived as not very good doctors -- that they have no alternative so they do abortions, that they cannot earn a living any other way." Richard Hausknecht, Abortionist
The New York Times Magazine, January 18, 1998
"Sometimes we lied. A girl might ask what her baby was like as a cerlain point in pregnancy. Was it a baby yet? Even as early as twelve weeks a baby is totally formed, he has fingerprints, turns his head, fans his toes, feels pain. But we would say, 'It's not a baby yet. It's tissue, like a clot." Kathy Sparks, former abortion clinic worker
"It's difficult being in a profession where you have a hard time answerlng the questions that other people ask you about what you do ... you come to feel not so good about what you're doing even when you thought you were doing something wonderful."
Terry Beresford. Planned Parenthood
"I had gotten involved in abortion because I wanted to help. But instead, while sucking the child out of its mother I was also sucking out the mother's soul and leaving an empty shell, an empty tomb. I began to detest what I was doing. More than that I began to detest myself. I even entertained thoughts of suicide." Beverly McMillan M.D., OB/GYN, former abortionist
"We don't have real conversations. Sometimes the employees faint. Sometimes they throw up. Sometimes they have to leave the room …" Joy Davis, Clinic Manager
Research has been done concerning the health of the abortionist…..Constance Nathanson and Marshall Becker observed, ""Some studies have suggested that some physicians experience considerable personal disturbances over the abortion procedure itself." Their own study found that 41.8% of Maryland Ob/Gyns who support Roe v Wade are often or sometimes disturbed by abortion. Of those who are disturbed, 37.1 % admit that the disturbance is severe or moderate."
They see a conflict between being a protector of pregnancy and a terminator of life.
Is there a conflict and do abortionist suffer just like the mothers of the children they kill?
