Lauren Enriquez has written a revealing blog, splicing together candid quotes from abortionists concerning the work they do.
I reproduce a few below, while the full story - linked here, contains many more along with their references.
- “They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion.” Dr. Randall, former abortionist. Quoted in "Pro-Choice 1990: Skeletons in the Closet" by David Kuperlain and Mark Masters in Oct. “New Dimensions” magazine.
- “Even now I feel a little peculiar about it, because as a physician I was trained to conserve life, and here I am destroying it.” Dr. Benjamin Kalish, abortionist.
- “Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years.” Dr. Susan Poppema, abortionist.
