"is it a boy or a girl?" the new mother says eagerly, after having her baby. "What does it matter? It’s not a shiny" says the doctor, releasing the newborn into the wild.

As someone who lives in Tuscaloosa, I can confirm the sororities and Fraternities here are literally the worst. I know people from the greek system all over the US (which is awful) who refuse to take part in it after starting school at UA because of how backwards, racist, homophobic, and all around fucked up it is. So that’s saying something.
I had a patient in the clinic who really did not want an abortion but who had no resources to cover the costs of prenatal care or childbirth. She was single and without insurance coverage but made just enough money to be ineligible for state assistance. She already had outstanding bills at the hospital and with the local ob-gyn practice. No doctor would see her without payment up front.
We were willing to do the abortion for a reduced rate or for free if necessary. But she really didn’t want an abortion. Once I understood her situation, I went to the phone and called the local ‘crisis pregnancy center.’
"Hello, this is Dr. Wicklund."
Dead silence. I might as well have said I was Satan.
"Hello?" I said again. "This is Dr. Wicklund."
"Hello," very tentatively, followed by another long silence.
"I need help with a patient," I said. "She came to me for an abortion, but really doesn’t want one. What she really needs is someone to do her prenatal care and birth for free."
"What do you expect us to do?"
I let that hang for a minute.
