Abortion clinic workers don’t want children in the facility

In one book that talked about the daily workings of an abortion clinic, the author describes how clinic workers didn’t want women to bring their children to the facility:

“Objections were also raised about clients who brought their young children with them into the recovery room: clinic workers were concerned not only about the ability of the recovery room staff to monitor the children but also about the distress their presence might cause…”

Carole Joffe, “The Regulation of Sexuality: Experiences of Family-Planning Workers” (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1986) p. 100.

Seeing living children may cause a woman to rethink her decision – and the clinic workers couldn’t have that.
