In a press release today, the American Association of Pro-Life OB/GYNS (AAPLOG) has announced that the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) is seeking a “new subspecialty certification for doing late-term abortions” to encourage Fellowships in Family Planning at universities across the United States. As AAPLOG points out, part of this subspecialty certification in “complex family planning” requires that those in such fellowships would be trained not only in contraception and in first trimester abortions, but late-term abortion as well.
The application for certification notes requirements for the Fellowship in Family Planning, and among these are the requirement to learn to use medications (mifepristone, misoprostol, prostaglandin, and methotrexate) for first and second trimester abortions, and to learn to utilize vacuum aspiration for first trimester procedures.
Those in a Family Planning Fellowship would also be required to learn second trimester procedures, such as D&E (dilation and evacuation), intact D&E or dilation and extraction, hysterotomy, and hysterectomy, as stated in the application.
