Medical Students for Choice desperate to increase numbers of abortionists


According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, the number of abortion clinics in the United States has declined by nearly 40%, after peaking in 1982. Recent years have seen abortion clinics continue to shut their doors after the passing of pro-life laws around the nation. As clinics continue to close, as abortion rates continue to drop, and as organizations such as Planned Parenthood continue to be exposed, times are looking tough for big business abortion.

But Medical Students for Choice is fighting to continue big business abortion, with the help of private funding including grants from the Rockefeller Family Fund, a non-profit group that, according to their website, seeks to find the leverage points of key societal and political issues and which “seeks to improve the quality of life for working women and their families.” Sadly, it appears that the group views abortion as a way to help achieve this goal.

According to Reuters, the Rockefeller Family Fund sent 137 students for abortion training at its Abortion Training Institute, more than twice as many as in 2010. The Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Training Program has also increased abortion training around the country.
