Abortion Worker: Adoption Counseling at Abortion Facilities is ‘Abysmal’


By Sarah Terzo
Live Action News


An anesthesiologist who worked in an abortion facility came forward to criticize the counseling that abortion facilities offer women. She says abortion facilities do not give accurate information about adoption.

First, let’s see how the pro-abortion guidebook book Abortion: Facts and Feelings: A Handbook for Women and the People who Care About Them describes abortion counselors. Facts and Feelings is written as a handbook to guide women through their abortions and help them choose between abortion and motherhood. It says:

Abortion counselors vary in style and approach, but every counselor should help the woman to think through her situation, including her religious beliefs, her financial resources, her living arrangements with lovers, parents, other relatives, and friends. The pregnant woman and the counselor will also discuss the options and how the woman might expect them to play out over the coming weeks, months, and years. Discussion with a neutral, informed, and helpful third party can help a person to see things from different perspectives or to realize possibilities she had not considered. (1)
Contrast this to the words of Dr. Shirley Bond, abortion facility employee:
I think the counselling for adoption is abysmal – it’s virtually nonexistent. Sometimes adoption is raised all right, but in such a negative way – “I don’t suppose you want it adopted,” kind of thing. Or “Have you thought about adoption?” And that is adoption counselling.”
Most of the pregnancy counselling, Dr. Bond points out, is “done by people who are very pro-abortion. Basically, it’s geared to pro-abortion. I don’t think there are enough people around who know about adoption, so women are put off the whole procedure…. I just think the whole climate about adoption is wrong in this country. It’s negative. (2)

The revelation that abortion facilities neglect to mention adoption or paint it in a bad light is far from new.
