By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. My family and I will be on our vacation through August 27. I will occasionally add new items but for the most part we will repost “the best of the best” — the stories our readers have told us they especially liked. Very recently a story appeared online, talking about …Continue reading "“Abortion doula” celebrates being at the side of 2,000 women who have aborted"
By Micaiah Bilger Editor’s note. I received some interesting feedback from a post I wrote Tuesday about an “abortion doula.” The basis was a BBC story about Vicki Bloom who proudly talked of being “in the room for more than 2,000 [abortion] procedures.” This prompted me to repost this story written by Micaiah Bilger who …Continue reading "“Abortion Doula” Struggles with Saying 11-Year-Old’s Abortion, Sex-Selection Abortion Are Wrong"
By Sarah Terzo An abortion doula, who works in abortion facilities to comfort women as they have abortions, admits: “Sometimes you are dishonest. In the beginning, I shadow a more experienced doula as she reassures a patient that the woman in the next room screaming wildly is not here for the same procedure, though, of …Continue reading "Abortion doula admits to being dishonest with women"
By Sarah Terzo An abortion doula, who comforts women during their abortions, says that many poor women feel they have no choice but to get abortions. Their life circumstances force them into abortions they might not really want. They are not empowered by their “choices” but feel trapped and think they have no other options. …Continue reading "Abortion doula: Women feel they have no choice"

By Tim Graham Washington Post correspondent Monica Hesse specializes in pro-abortion valentines. Two years ago, Hesse penned a long, sympathetic story on a Wyoming woman who drove 400 miles to seek an abortion in Montana. On Wednesday, the Style section was dominated by a Hesse story headlined “Lending a hand at the end of a …Continue reading "WashPost Offers Emotional Support for Those Emotionally Supporting Abortions"
By Dave Andrusko This is the last post of the day so it won’t be terribly long. Besides even by the puff-piece standards of the Washington Post, this is a dozy. The title of Monica Hesse’s can’t-love-‘em-enough piece is “The long five minutes: Abortion doulas bring comfort during a complicated time.” The whole point of …Continue reading "Another love story devoted to the “abortion doula”"
By Dave Andrusko You have to swallow hard when you read statements like this from a student at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. Julie Vermeulen is a member of the “Wesleyan Doula Project,” which she fancies as a kind of bridge between the abortion clinic staff and the pregnant woman. “I think that everyone deserves …Continue reading "Looking behind the justifications used by the first student-run abortion doula project"
By Lauren Enriquez In September, “abortion doula” Alex Ronan wrote a piece for The Cut entitled, My Year As an Abortion Doula. Our readers may be familiar with the idea of birth doulas. Since ancient times, women helpers have been present during a woman’s labor and birth experience. They provide physical and emotional support, …Continue reading "Abortion doula’s bizarre account reveals disjointed loyalty to the cause"

Like everything abortion touches, the work of an abortion doula pollutes what a doula traditionally does: assist a woman during childbirth. When I first read about the abortion doula, it was …Continue reading "Surprising truths from an “abortion doula”"
By Dave Andrusko I’ve spent a fair amount of time speculating why the sudden interest in an abortion clinic which is pairing the elimination of “unwanted” babies with a “natural child birth” experience for those babies fortunate enough to be wanted[nrlc.cc/1ouKABG and nrlc.cc/1ouKlqg].Let’s think about it again today. We’ve written about what are called …Continue reading "More publicity for abortion clinic that also “houses” natural birthing center"
By Dave Andrusko I found it hard to know how to take the very last exchange between Roc Morin of the Atlantic magazine and “full-spectrum doula Annie Robinson,” a 27-year-old woman who counsels/consoles/comforts women who are aborting. Robinson has just told Morin that people get their views on abortion from “culture,” more specifically from …Continue reading "What we can learn from the admissions of an abortion doula"
