From a woman who had an abortion:
The waiting room was “filled with a true cross-section of the community. No one looked happy. No one was chatting with anyone but their partners. This was not a day to make friends.”
The woman says:
“I tried to concentrate on the physical feelings, not on what was happening. It was over in minutes, and I was overcome with sadness. “I’m so sorry I didn’t want you,” I told the fetus. “I’m so sorry.”
