Diane, a clinic worker, says that not that many men accompany women to their abortions:
“Maybe one out of four women has a man with her or waiting at the end. I’d say about two out of four come with a woman friend. And although we push them to have someone with them, about one out of four women insists on coming alone.”
Louise Kapp Howe, Moments on Maple Avenue: The Reality of Abortion (New York: Warner Books, 1984) pp.48 – 49
What a terrible, lonely experience it must be for a woman who has no one to go with her!
