One abortionist says:
“In order to be attentive, focused, and disciplined, there is an emotional distancing. You cannot allow your own emotional vulnerability to get in the way of your own judgment and attention when you’re in the midst of the surgical procedure.”
It is not surprising that an abortion provider would need to distance herself. After all, she sees the torn apart arms and legs of babies during these procedures.
From Eve Kushner, “Experiencing Abortion: a Weaving of Women’s Words” (Binghamton, New York: The Haworth Press, 1997) p. 56.
