Unidentified students from MSFC

Medical Students for Choice Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) is an organization which aims to "ensure that women receive the full range of reproductive healthcare choices" by working to make abortion a part of standard medical education and residency training. They believe that a big obstacle for safe and legal abortion is the lack of trained providers.[1]

According to their website, "MSFC encourages medical schools to include in their curricula: didactic instruction on the public health, social and historical context of abortion; medical and surgical abortion techniques; pre- and post-abortion management; pregnancy-options and contraceptive counseling; and the opportunity to observe abortion procedures, including pre-abortion counseling."
