Being an abortion provider is "rewarding" and women should only keep pregnancies if they want them, a doctor from the UK's largest abortion provider has said in a revealing blog post for the Huffington Post UK.
The BPAS doctor, who wishes to remain anonymous in light of the polarised climate around their work, says giving women relief by aborting "unplanned pregnancies" makes their job worthwhile.
"Politicians are very concerned by women who have more than one abortion. But just as every woman having an abortion is different, so are the circumstances of a particular abortion for an individual woman.
"Women having more than one abortion are described by the press as irresponsible or immoral; the facile pejorative characterisation of the repeat offender. Newspapers often fail to consider the notion that fluctuating, complex social circumstances which we all experience can lead anyone, including responsible, conscientious people, to need more than one abortion," the BPAS worker writes.
The doctor says that each person ending an unwanted pregnancy has unique circumstances which can "make their own convincing argument for the morality and legality of abortion. "
