Post-Roe Initiative Update: Students in their Own Words
Rachel Abbott, Student Organizer The appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court last fall means that the balance of the court is now prepared to restrict abortion access and potentially overturn Roe v Wade. However, we are ready—MSFC chapters across the US have been fighting to provide abortion access under difficult circumstances …
Have you graduated medical school but still want to make abortion a standard part of medical practice? MSFC works with residents too.
MSFC chapters exist in over 180 locations worldwide. As a resident you can join an existing chapter, or network with other residents through our online residents listserve. The listserve also will announce opportunities for residents to participate in advocacy efforts. Residents can also apply for MSFC’s Abortion Training Programs to gain clinical experience in abortion care.
We stay organized across many countries by using a few simple guidelines for funding, fundraising, and interaction with each other and with the larger world. See the sidebar for more information. If you want to discuss community-building opportunities for residents directly, please email [email protected].
Whether you are one resident in a program that is hostile towards choice, or part of a large chapter at a school that is friendly to collaboration, your efforts with Medical Students for Choice will help to transform medical education and inspire the next generation of abortion providers and pro-choice physicians!
