Over one third of OB/GYN residents have no training in abortions

According to Medical Students for Choice, an organization that advocates for medical schools to train more abortion providers over a third of OB/GYN residents have no training in first trimester abortions. The organization also says that nearly all family practitioners lack this training:

“97% of family practice residents and 36% of OB/GYN residents have no experience in first trimester abortion procedures.”
