.- The author of the book, âI Aborted,â Esperanza Puente, said during a press conference last week that abortion clinics are inhumane, treat women as mere âcustomers,â and consider the babies they kill as mere âblobs of tissuesâ or âclusters of cells.â
According to the newspaper âEl Dia,â Puente said the abortion clinic she went to exemplifies the inhumanity of such places. âThe relationship between doctors and âclientsâ is cold. Everyone thinks that those who go there are going to use a service they are paying for,â she said.
âIn the waiting room, women cry without tears and scream without a voice,â she continued, âand the standard procedure is that women donât see ultrasounds of the baby, which is considered to be a âcluster of cellsâ or a blob of tissue, as one doctor in Madrid told a woman a few days ago.â
Puente stressed that in her case, as with many other women, âthe psychologist doesnât follow the law either, because he is not a specialist outside the clinic but rather is involved and only wants to get the woman to sign the informed consent papers as soon as possible, but he does not inform her of the scars the mother will bear for the rest of her life.â
Recalling the most difficult moments of her experience, including when âthe nurse forgot about the remains of my child at my side,â she denounced âthe lucrative business of the elimination of fetuses, which are used in cosmetics.â
Puente questioned whether the new abortion law under consideration in Spain would âprovide complete information to women about the scars they will bear after an abortion.â
