I remember speaking to one father outside the abortion mill who said, “Yeah, I know it’s murder. Everybody knows it’s murder.” He and the mother went ahead with the abortion.
Abortion is immediately a 'quick & convenient' solution. It haunts them, though, for the rest of their lives. Far easier to put on a smiley face and justify their actions as being sanctioned by the state. They will rarely admit it but the guilt and shame of what they have done burns within. Worse yet, it hardens their hearts, because they cannot forgive themselves.
