A woman who had an abortion said:

“I remember looking at the doctor, and I couldn’t see his face, and he was quiet the whole time. He didn’t say one word. So that was the only thing that was kind of creepy, because I wanted him to, like, speak to me, to tell me this is okay. But he was quiet, and I think he was wearing, you know, how surgeons wear those masks. He was wearing one of those, and I couldn’t see his face at all.”
