Abortion clinic worker would rather have “3 or 4 abortions” than go to the dentist

By Sarah Terzo

One abortion clinic worker made the following statement:

“In Spain every single abortion is done under local [anesthesia]. It’s walk in, walk out. They come in at 4 clock, by 5 o’clock they have had the operation, the consultation, and are back home. And I was so impressed by it. I said, it’s not possible! I wouldn’t mind having 3 or 4 abortions like that rather than go to the dentist once every 5 years. They’ve mastered the technique, improved it, no fuss.”

Patricia Launneborg, Abortion: a Positive Decision (New York: Bergin & Garvey, 1992) p. 86.

She would rather have 3 or 4 abortions than go to the dentist. This statement is even more shocking when you realize that she works at the clinic and sees bodies of aborted babies (like the one below) every day. Has abortion become so trivialized that going to the dentist is considered worse?
