In some cases, it seems that Ms. Cox goes off Planned Parenthood's usual script.
With regards to abortion protesters:
“They don’t cause any trouble,” Cox said. “We haven’t had a problem, really.”On contraceptives:
“They’ve never been through this, for the most part,” Cox said. “They feel many things, among them embarrassed for getting in this situation.On how viewing an ultrasound can affect a woman's decision:
“We try to have them not beat themselves up, because it happens, and there’s no method of contraception that’s 100 percent other than abstinence.”
During a visit that takes several hours, a client undergoes a blood test and a sonogram, Cox said.
The client always is offered a chance to view the sonogram, she said. After looking at the sonogram or going through Planned Parenthood’s required counseling, she said, some women have decided not to proceed with their planned abortions.
