How does the injustice of the trails affect proctor in the book "the crucible?"?

The main reason why Proctor can't stand this injustice is because Abigail is behind it all, and he knows she as lying; she told him herself. He is also affected in the sense that he knows innocent people will die because of a few girls words, as he said in the play, something like, "You are raising up a whore over God" (I know that's not a direct quotation but it's something like that). Aside from those two reasons, Proctor is hurt by Abigail's accusations as he knows what her motivation is; to kill Elizabeth and get to him.
