(LifeNews) You have to swallow hard when you read statements like this from a student at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
Julie Vermeulen is a member of the "Wesleyan Doula Project," which she fancies as a kind of bridge between the abortion clinic staff and the pregnant woman.
"I think that everyone deserves compassionate care, basically," Vermeulen told the Wesleyan Argus, the student newspaper. "And this is obviously a political issue, but I really see it as a humanitarian issue. So whatever your politics are, I think that good, compassionate care is a human right. I think as doulas, we help make that happen."

The project members stress that every case is different. Some women are nervous, some wonder if God will "hate" them after they abort their child, others cry, still others are guilty.
