This Abortion Doula’s Sole Job is Making Sure Babies are Killed in Abortions

A Maine abortion doula told Vogue this week how heartbroken and horrified she feels that new pro-life laws are stopping some women from aborting their unborn babies.

Her job as an abortion doula is to help women arrange abortions and comfort and encourage them through the process.

In the interview, the unnamed abortion worker explained how her work has become more difficult since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, and urged more people to be actively “pro-abortion.”

“As a mother who has had an abortion and loves pregnant people, connection, community and bodily autonomy with all my heart, abortion care work is the most beautiful work on earth to me,” she said.

Her job as an abortion doula involves lots of different things, including connecting women with abortion funds to help pay for it, driving them to appointments, holding their hand during the abortion, arranging travel and lodging, and even babysitting older children while the mother aborts their youngest sibling, according to the interview.

In the abortion doula’s words, she helps women “protect their joy, their health, their autonomy, their family, and their future.”

But abortions destroy all these things for the children that these women are carrying in their womb.

Now that Roe is gone and more than a dozen states are protecting unborn babies from abortion again, the doula said her job is much more stressful. She said she and other abortion workers feel “deeply traumatized” and “abandoned,” but they have “no choice but to continue working.”

In Maine, where abortions are still legal, she said they are seeing more out-of-state abortion patients. But she also admitted that pro-life laws are stopping some women from aborting their unborn babies, thus saving lives.

“What might have been a relatively accessible 15-minute procedure in someone’s hometown has now become a three-day ordeal of traveling with young children, missing work, not being able to make rent,” she told Vogue. “Or, horrifyingly and heartbreakingly, it has become a continued pregnancy and birth against someone’s will.”

As a result, she claimed more women are “suffering far more physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually, which makes caring for them and supporting them more intense and more full of stress and grief.”

The doula urged people to become more “actively pro-abortion” by donating and volunteering with pro-abortion groups. But the abortion industry already enjoys billions and billions of dollars in funding from some of the world’s richest men and governments.

What families really need when they are struggling financially, as many are when women seek abortions, is better support for themselves and their unborn babies. Killing an unborn baby in an abortion is not the answer. A mother struggling financially will continue to struggle after aborting her unborn baby, but she also will have the added burden of grief and often regret for ending her child’s life. The problem is finances, not her child.

Whole families deserve support. Killing a member of that family is never a solution to anyone’s problems.
