Abortion Worker's Medical Forms Outrage Goes Viral


A woman who works in an abortion clinic recently took to Reddit to expose a disgusting policy employed by certain anti-abortion states, according to Cosmopolitan.

She keeps her identity – and even the state in question – hidden, and only says, “I work in an abortion clinic in a very conservative state."

She begins by explaining the generalized and persistent problems that occur when it comes to abortion rights in some red states.

She goes on to shine a light on one deeply sinister tactic her state's government employs in an attempt to shame women who are getting abortions.

By making them anonymously “explain" themselves in an official capacity, they hope to guilt trip the women into backing out of the abortions they are about to have.

Tactics like these are employed consistently throughout the country.

The woman goes on to propose a solution to this state's request for an explanation.

Basically, her advice is to go ahead and tell the government this:

Finally, she made one last plea to her readers.

The post quickly went viral, and many comments on the post come from women who have either experienced scare tactics like these or are afraid they may someday have to.

So, guys: Listen.
