Medical Students For Choice Honor Abortion Providers

In recognition of the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers (NDAAP) on Friday, hundreds of Medical Students For Choice will honor abortion providers in their communities.

The NDAAP date was chosen to commemorate and honor the death of Dr. David Gunn, the first abortion provider murdered by anti-abortion extremists.

Jody Steinauer, MD, president and found of MSFC, states that "By serving their patients - even in the face of terrorist acts of violence and constant harassment - abortion providers truly are our heroes."

MSFC Executive Director, Patricia Anderson, commented that "today's abortion providers - dedicated doctors and clinic staff - continue to make reproductive choice a reality every day for women and their families. For their perseverance, we say 'thank you.'"
