The author of the book, “I Aborted,” Esperanza Puente, said during a press conference last week that abortion clinics are inhumane, treat women as mere “customers,” and consider the babies they kill as mere “blobs of tissues” or “clusters of cells.”
According to the newspaper “El Dia,” Puente said the abortion clinic she went to exemplifies the inhumanity of such places. “The relationship between doctors and ‘clients’ is cold. Everyone thinks that those who go there are going to use a service they are paying for,” she said.
“In the waiting room, women cry without tears and scream without a voice,” she continued, “and the standard procedure is that women don’t see ultrasounds of the baby, which is considered to be a ‘cluster of cells’ or a blob of tissue, as one doctor in Madrid told a woman a few days ago.”
Puente stressed that in her case, as with many other women, “the psychologist doesn’t 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.”
Recalling the most difficult moments of her experience, including when “the nurse forgot about the remains of my child at my side,” she denounced “the lucrative business of the elimination of fetuses, which are used in cosmetics.”
Puente questioned whether the new abortion law under consideration in Spain would “provide complete information to women about the scars they will bear after an abortion.”
