Example text

No one could find them. ” Shawn, whose relationship with the nurse was already very rocky, did not confront her about his suspicion. The nurse was fired shortly thereafter for unrelated reasons. In the end Shawn was not able to provide abortions at his clinic. One major stumbling block was ambiguity about whether this was permissible, because the clinic received federal funding. Some cautious administrators have interpreted the rules to mean that no abortions can take place in facilities that receive such funds.

By this logic, the failure of providers to report any abortion performed on a teenager under sixteen would have constituted breaking the law. I believe that extreme measures such as these, and the Colorado “fetal personhood” initiative cited at the beginning of this chapter, have contradictory effects on the public, even when they are defeated (as the Colorado measure soundly was). On the one hand, these initiatives reveal the very radical nature of the religious right’s agenda, which goes well beyond opposition to abortion; such an exposé, from my perspective, is a positive development.

It is impossible to say with precision how many clinicians who “you need a community with you” 35 have been trained in abortion procedures go on to provide this service. In one of the most substantial studies to date, Dr. Jody Steinauer, a physician researcher at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), and her colleagues surveyed over 5,000 ob-gyns who had become board-certified between 1998 and 2001 about their current practice. Of the 2,149 who responded to the survey, only 22 percent had provided elective abortions in the past year.
