What To Expect When You're Aborting. (As catchy as "What To Expect When You're Expecting"?)
As did BBW, I'll highlight what particularly struck me:
They give you walk-in pregnancy tests. $18 bones ($12.99 at your local drugstore. Not sure what the mark up is about. It’s not a blood test.
Hey, typical retail markup is 100%. Assuming PP buys them at the drugstore they're giving you a discount! Right? I mean, it's not like they get a discount for bulk pregnancy tests!
I peed into a dixie up. Dixie cups, the HEIGHT of medical technology).
Who wants to bet they bill them as "specimen containers" at $8 a pop when they get tax reimbursement for the pregnancy tests?
I asked to meet with a “Options Counselor”.
The O.C. was doctor, but one of these doctor’s whose speciality is apperantly aborting, not communication.
She spoke with a doctor before the abortion? That is astonishing. But getting an "Options Counselor" whose "speciality is apperantly aborting, not communication"?
What a surprise. I think I'm gonna have a heart attack and die from that surprise.
In the waiting room I decided I would just get the [abortion] pill asap. So when I asked what she believed the pros and cons were to doing the pill she busted:
“No..no..just do the surgical. Then you don’t have to do it alone.” Which is nice that they believe in the buddy system but didn’t do much to help me weigh my options.
After some pushing, she finally explained blurted out that I could hemorrhage and I would be alone. She said that they generally always recommend the surgery.
Um, are there some RU-486 deaths PP isn't telling us about? Because the dead RU-486 patients we know about died from sepsis, not hemorrhage.
Made me feel helpless and uninformed.
Par for the course at Planned Parenthood.
