National Survey Of Obstetricians/Gynecologists On Contraception And Unplanned Pregnancy: Attitudes And Practices With Regard To Abortion

National Survey Of Obstetricians/Gynecologists On Contraception And Unplanned Pregnancy: Attitudes And Practices With Regard To Abortion

The survey findings show only one third of obstetricians/gynecologists practicing today perform abortions. Younger doctors, doctors in multi-specialty group practices, and doctors practicing in the South and Midwest are among those least likely to perform abortions. The survey also finds that many of the physicians who do not perform abortions say they would, however, offer Mifepristone, if approved by the Food and Drug Administration. A press release summarizing the findings and questionnaire topline data is available.
