'Rural' push for abortion under study

The "TelAbortion Study" is being conducted in Hawaii, New York, Washington, and Oregon to analyze telemedicine and the delivery of abortion-causing chemicals by mail, especially in rural areas. The study website doesn't specify who or what organization is conducting the study, saying only that it is "being conducted by institutions that provide abortions in participating states."

While the "who" behind the study isn't clear, Dr. Randall K. O'Bannon of the National Right to Life Committee believes he knows "why" it's being done. He argues that the study is a way of increasing the scope of profit for abortion businesses.

“As you know, the abortion industry has been struggling with clinics that have been closing, [with] doctors who have been trying or are getting out of the business because they've gotten involved in scandals or who had some major problems,” he says. “They're having a real shortage of abortionists in the United States.”
