However, I am struck by the way the two sides of the abortion debate view their own approaches and their opponents’ approaches toward women.
They treated the pregnant woman “like a human being, like somebody important, with relationships and a capacity to be a good mother.” They were “kind, honest, forthright, and trying to treat her like a complete human being with real needs and capabilities.”
CPCs “basically lie to women and say whatever to convince visitors not to have an abortion. They’ll tell you that you’ll get breast cancer, that you’ll become infertile, that God will not forgive you, that you’ll spend an eternity burning in Hell – if you get this abortion.”
The abortion facilities “feed you comfortable lies until they have your money, and then lose all interest in you.” At Planned Parenthood the pregnant woman could expect to be “patronized, processed, and lied to.”
“Don’t **** with her about her relationship or question if she’s sure she doesn’t want to try a new birth control method (because, this one failed. Right?). If she sighs deep, looks like she hasn’t slept, seems distant: just ****ing hold her hand. Show her kindness. Let her breathe.” (Emphasis in original.)
