Statement on the Attack on Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs


MS4C Large_color corrected

In the field of abortion care the isolation and targeting of physicians is nothing new. We have seen these terroristic attacks take the form of picketing providers’ homes and children’s schools, clinic arsons and bombings, and most horrifying, the murder and attempted murder of abortion providers. As we look back on 2015, the landscape is once again filled with a barrage of attacks on women’s access to abortion care.

This past weekend, as we have seen too many times before, those who lovingly accompanied friends and family members to a health clinic to receive care lost their lives to this violence.  When the political rhetoric rises to the extreme levels we have seen be endlessly repeated in our media this year, we must hold those voices accountable for the horrific consequences of their callous, politically motivated decisions.

At MSFC, we dedicate our work to ensuring that everyone will have a caring, compassionate physician to provide any medical support a person or family may need. The absolute commitment to that vision shown by our members every day is inspiring and serves to answer the strident voices of those who will go to any lengths to prevent people from making their own health decisions.  Abortion is moral and legal, murder is not.  It’s that simple.

"This is such a unique opportunity to gain clinical exposure in a classically underrepresented area of medical school curricula, and I am certain that I would not have received such a robust abortion education in medical school without the RHE."

"I left the ATI with a strengthened resolve to get abortion training during residency in order to provide them as a PCP, and now am looking ONLY at residency programs that will allow me to get training. Moreover, talking with residents and providers left me with concrete knowledge of how to find training experiences."
