The abortionist and the need for “Emotional distancing”

One abortionist [1] 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, they see the torn apart arms and legs of babies during these “procedures.”
