Abortionist Meera Shah says that women having abortions often bring their young children with them to the abortion clinic:

“… Most people choosing abortion are in fact already parents – more than six in ten of the women who have an abortion have one or more children. My waiting rooms are filled with children…

“When patients come to me seeking an abortion, I take note that these patients may have brought children along who are waiting in the reception area. Childcare may have been challenging to find.”
