Utah Dr. Leah Torres spends most of her time working as a hospital OB-GYN, performing mammograms, prescribing birth control and examining women with high-risk pregnancies.
But on one Saturday each month, she heads to one of the two abortion facilities left in Utah and “help[s] people end their pregnancies.” She is an abortionist.
In an interview with The Nation, Torres lamented that she is not treated the same way as other health care providers because she performs abortions.
“I’m not driving around in a white van, knocking on doors, telling people they need an abortion,” she said. “I’m not a monster who hates children and makes a lot of money and does abortions left and right because I think [it’s] the right choice. I do abortions because it’s part of health care.”
