Quotes

Clinic Nurse: Let me just ask you something, Ruth. Have you ever really taken the time to think about what it means to have an abortion?

Ruth: Yeah, um, it means that I don't have to go to jail and it means I don't have to have another baby and it means that I can start getting my life together ...

Clinic Nurse: I, I, I, I, I. Don't you think that's all just a little selfish?
