“How can you stand it? Even the clients ask. They see the machine, the strange instruments, the blood, and the final stroke that wipes away the promise of pregnancy. Sometimes I see that too. I watch a woman’s swollen abdomen sink to softness in a few stuttering moments and my own belly flip-flops with sorrow.”

From Sallie Tisdale, “We Do Abortions Here,” Harpers Magazine, October 1987.
