“What keeps physicians who feel positive about providing abortion from doing so?" To answer her own question, Ms. Freedman has done careful qualitative research, conducted penetrating physician interviews, and reviewed the history of American medicine’s relationship with abortion.
Excerpts from physicians’ frank conversations with Ms. Freedman put readers in their shoes when, as no longer sovereign professionals, they made difficult value judgments. Many physicians told her they felt providing abortion is a professional responsibility. Yet, they were prevented from providing abortions by barriers created by group practices and larger institutions. These feared financial loss because of alienated referral sources and stigma from the community.
So, mainstream medicine has marginalized abortion care. Ms. Freedman calls for the professional American medical institutions to use their power to counter the institutional buck-passing. She expects non-physician providers may have a greater role in abortion provision in the future. Physicians nearing retirement are more likely to have established reputations and financial stability. They have grown children and do not have to worry about abortion provision taking over their practice. She recommends abortion activists target this less vulnerable population to create a new provider base.Clear analysis, insiders’ views, and elegant writing make this book a new landmark in the literature of women’s reproductive care. Jeff Duffey MD, Exploring Your Unplanned Pregnancy
