If you have access to Obstetrics & Gynecology, we would love to see the article, “Abortion Provision Among Practicing Obstetrician–Gynecologists” in the September issue. From the abstract we know that the authors found:
Among practicing ob-gyns, 97% encountered patients seeking abortions, whereas 14% performed them. Female physicians were more likely to provide abortions than were male (18.6% compared with 10.6%, adjusted odds ratio 2.54, 95% confidence interval 1.57–4.08), as were those in the youngest age group, those in the Northeast or West, those in highly urban postal codes, and those who identify as being Jewish. Catholics, Evangelical Protestants, non-Evangelical Protestants, and physicians with high religious motivation were less likely to provide abortions.
While this seems to confirm what we would have thought about abortionists in general, we are curious about the details of this research.
