woman-thoughtful-sad

In this article about abortion, a reporter makes the following observations at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in New York called Margaret Sanger Center:

It is 3:30 and Nancy Todd, a social worker at Sanger, is exhausted. Today she saw a 14-year-old girl who came in for an abortion but knew nothing about what the procedure entailed. There was a woman in her late 20s who came in for her ninth abortion, with whom Todd had a long discussion about birth control.
