Our Common Good

As if it weren’t bad enough that Republicans want to restrict the conditions in which you can have an abortion, they now want to prevent doctors from even knowing how to perform them in the first place. Congress is set to vote today on an amendment that would stop federal funds from being used to train medical residents from learning abortion techniques. It’s part of a larger bill that impacts overall funding for medical students.

This is insane.  What happens when a pregnant woman shows up at the hospital and needs an abortion to save her life.  There will be no one who knows how to do it safely and completely.  Doctors who care about women will have to have underground training programs.
