You get no thanks for performing abortions

Kate Guthrie, a spokesperson on family planning for the RCOG (Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) talks about the stigma abortionists face:

“You get no thanks for performing abortions; you get spat on. Who admits to friends at a dinner party that they are an abortionist? It is not a sexy area; it is a bog standard area of women’s care. The problem is that the more who exit the area, the more those that remain are dumped on [with extra work].

There is an increasing number of young doctors who are not participating in the training. The college and the Department of Health are really worried.”
