BENEFITING: Medical Students for Choice
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2013
One in every 3 women will have an abortion, yet most medical schools and gynecology training programs don't integrate abortion into their curricula. It's no surprise then that the number of providers in the US decreased by 38% from 1982 and 2005. In the UK, there is only one doctor in the NHS who can perform surgical abortions to the legal limit. Without providers there is no choice.
Medical Students for Choice (MSFC), a grassroots student organization, is working to change that. Their mission is to create tomorrow's abortion providers and pro choice physicians. MSFC is active on more than 3/4 of the medical school campuses in North America and at schools in nine countries, including the UK.
Patricia joined the Board of MSFC in June and I'm supporting her and the cause by asking you to sponsor me in the Great North Run. Please consider making a generous donation and I pledge to complete the half-marathon and improve on my time from last year.
