Hanna Amanuel recalls observing a second-trimester abortion at a hospital, in part because her work allowed her to shadow the doctor. Outside of medical school classes and pro-abortion groups such as Medical Students for Choice, where Amanuel is the incoming president, the opportunities to receive comprehensive abortion training remain limited.
“Among our board members and student chapter organizers, a lot of people are a lot less interested or not interested at all in going to residency programs in states that are likely or have banned abortion,” said Amanuel, a doctorate’s student at Harvard University who’s seeking abortion training.
