Support Medical Students for Choice (MSFC), a nonprofit that destigmatizes abortion by training medical students to do them.
One of the ways in which pro-life forces have tried to curtail access to abortion is by scaring medical students and residents away from learning how to perform them.
MSFC combats this on several fronts. It advocates to make abortion a standard part of the medical school curriculum; it hosts conferences; it has chapters at more than 200 medical schools around the world; and it educates almost 1,000 medical students in abortion and family planning annually.
