I’m pretty sure Vicki isn’t an XX. (And I’m not talking about a sweater size.) ((I do believe that’s Alan Sherman in purple lipstick.))(((I could be wrong, though.)))
A Sunday feature from the BBC highlighted a woman with a macabre career: abortion doula.
The BBC interviewed Vicki Bloom, a doula who has reassured women through abortions—more than 2,000 of them.
Typically, doulas aid women as they undergo the childbirth process, but in Bloom’s case, she helps women as they abort their children.
“I will stand up by their head and be looking into that person’s eyes, ready for whatever they need, while the doctor is doing the procedure,” Bloom said.
Some of the things that abortion doulas do involve talking with the women about their lives, holding their hands, comforting them and wiping away sweat or tears. She said many talk about their children.
Do they talk about their child who is getting a saline burn before being sucked out of the womb piece by piece?
