You got it, but it flew right over their heads.<quoted text>
She was making the point that there are many people in various lines of work whom people confide in and tell their woes to. Caregivers aren't the only ones.
She was also making the point that some people who listen care and some don't, including caregivers.
If I'm not mistaken, and I may be, Sassy had been talking about people regretting their abortions even if they don't admit it, and that they would admit it on their deathbeds.
I'll add that I think you're full of shit about yourself and the role you play in the lives of others, because if someone had an abortion they regret, and are on their deathbed, you may listen, but you wouldn't really care, because you haven't got the empathy for something like that, since your conscience is so dead to it.
I absolutely agree with the rest of your post. Listening doesn't always equate to "caring". Case in point exactly what you pointed out regarding a deatbed confession or unresolved sin. She wouldn't care. To me that is tragic for that patient who is going before their maker and is seeking forgiveness only to be shrugged off by Elise a proabort.
