An abortion doctor from Utah received some criticism recently after arguing that she doesn’t do what she does “for the money”:
So f it's not for the money, is it because you just like infanticide?
Do you hear their heartbeats when you lay down at night?
Do you hear their screams?

Leah Torres, the abortion doctor featured in an article at The Nation in 2016 (which laughably yet pitifully vents her frustration at the state of Utah allowing her to properly “care” for her patients), explained why hearing their screams doesn’t concern her:
You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx.
I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a “uterus ripper outer,” if that’s how you’d like to describe hysterectomy. https://t.co/lng0W3ta5J

“Performing medicine.” Hippocrates unavailable for comment.
And that will receive some applause from the side of the aisle that accuses Republicans of not standing in defense of “the children.”
It’s not just what they do, it’s the glee they seem to take from it (while rubbing it in their critics’ faces) that’s most disgusting.
