Do you know what sounds like a good idea at first thought?
Free or affordable childcare in the same building/nearby clinics that provide abortion care.
The clinic where I escort doesn’t allow children or infants in the waiting area.
Some people who seek abortions have children.
People who are economically disadvantaged may be able to take advantage of free or inexpensive child care.
An abortion is a pretty irregular appointment (for one person – I’m not trying to imply that abortion is rare, or that a person will only have one abortion in their lifetime), and it is scheduled in advance. Should a parent should be able to obtain child care for this one time.
An abortion can be emotionally challenging. Perhaps a little downtime between having an abortion and seeing your bouncy, energetic kid is in order.
