What’s Really at Stake in the Planned Parenthood Fetal Tissue Debacle?

About Us


msfc-about-pictureOver 20 years of creating tomorrow’s abortion providers and pro-choice physicians.

As an internationally known non-profit with a successful track record for change, Medical Students for Choice® (MSFC) stands up in the face of violent opposition. We work to destigmatize abortion provision among medical students and residents, and to persuade medical schools and residency programs to include abortion as a part of the reproductive health services curriculum.

Today one of the greatest obstacles to safe and legal abortion around the world is the absence of trained providers.  Medical schools are simply not addressing the topic; most physicians graduate with little more than circumstantial knowledge of abortion. As medical students and residents, we work to make reproductive health care, including abortion, a part of standard medical education and residency training.

More specifically, these are our strategic goals

Support medical student advocacy and programming
Improve reproductive health curricula
Increase abortion training opportunities
Promote the importance of MSFC’s work broadly

Physicians have power, status, and prestige in nearly every culture and MSFC seeks to leverage that power in ways that promote our vision of reproductive health, justice, and rights around the world.
