This was Keisha Atkins. She died following a “safe and legal” abortion performed by a physician. The new Maryland Law, HB 937, would allow just about anyone, after being licensed and certified, to perform abortions.
This is part of the testimony of an OB/GYN physician to the legislature regarding HB 937:
“Becoming an Ob/Gyn physician requires the completion of four years of college, four years of medical school, and four years of a surgical residency in obstetrics and gynecology…… When it comes to performing procedures and administering protocols that can be lifethreatening, there is a reason why this responsibility lays solely on the shoulders of physicians. Physicians uniquely possess the necessary knowledge base and clinical experience to give patients the best shot at a favorable outcome and a good result.
--If prochoice advocates are truly pro-women, why would they push for women to receive substandard care?”
Oppose Maryland’s legislature and their criminal attempt to put desperate women in the hands of non-physician abortionists.
