"The women will grasp at any glossing-over of true facts; Dr. Leroy Carhart actually told a pregnant woman (in an undercover video) that it was like "meat in a crock pot.""
That reveals a sort of desperate self-deception - the willingness to grasp any falsehood in order to "justify" their behavior. It's like the starving, homeless man who accepts the bloody bag of money from the fleeing bank robber and chooses to "not ask any questions." Ignorance does not eliminate guilt, though it may mitigate some of it. Willful ignorance should not be considered a mitigating factor at all.
