Medical Students For Choice

From the organizational website:

The United States and Canada face a dangerous shortage of trained abortion providers. In 2000, 87% of the counties in the United States had no provider (1). The”graying”of current providers (57% of whom are over the age of 50 (7) ), violence that targets physicians, and restrictive legislation threaten to drive these numbers even lower. In addition, medical schools are simply not addressing the topic; most physicians are graduating with little more than circumstantial knowledge of abortion.

Medical Students for Choice ® stands up in the face of opposition, working to destigmatize abortion provision among medical students and residents, and to persuade medical schools and residency programs to include abortion as a part of the reproductive health services curriculum.

Today MSFC is an internationally known non-profit organization with a network of over 10,000 medical students and residents around the United States and Canada. We are tomorrow’s abortion providers and pro-choice physicians.

    Med Students for Choice is a great organization. I would also mention Seminarians for Choice, a project of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. There are chapters at a number of seminaries around the country, and they work together with Med Students for Choice and Law Students for Choice chapters in some areas. More bridges between these organizations can only be a good thing for the pro-choice movement!
