Unfortunately, this is par for the course when hateful misogynists write stupid anti-women abortion laws.

These people were treated terribly. They didn’t deserve that. But some bits this guy wrote give me the feeling that he thinks their situation, because it was not an elective abortion, deserved better treatment than others.

This kind of story isn’t one I have heard much in the talk about women’s reproductive rights.

Then he hasn’t been paying attention, I think.

Since we weren’t having an elective abortion, they tried their best to treat us differently. Come at this specific time to avoid the protestors. Use this door, not that one.

That doesn’t sound like clinics I’m familiar with. They try to make all their patients comfortable, and treat them with respect.

Even though we were not there to have an elective abortion of a living, potentially viable fetus, we still had to sit through the video explaining what an abortion is, what it does, and precisely what we were doing to that poor baby.

Nobody should have to watch that video. It doesn’t matter why she’s having an abortion.

But this whole mess should have been a discussion between my wife’s doctor and her. It should have been over and done with in the doctor’s office that day. We should not have had any of the hassle at all over what was, ultimately, a medical procedure to remove some dead tissue.

All abortions should be a matter between a woman and her health care provider.

When women are hassled, judged, and pushed around for obtaining a legal medical procedure, it’s going to affect someone you know and care about eventually. They don’t deserve it, and neither do the ones you don’t know and don’t care about.

re: #2 wrenchwench

Good points. On re-reading the linked piece, it reads exactly as if written by one who has comfortably voted for anti-choice politicians all his life.
