Title: Abortion courses
Published: Ventura County Star
Date: Aug. 15, 2002
About this cartoon: The news story was that abortion providers are disappearing, that the existing ones are aging and younger medical students are not learning the procedure. While some of the latter are not learning the procedure due to moral or religious reasons, many are willing to learn (there may be medical reasons that make the procedure necessary, beyond personal "choice" reasons) but are not finding places to learn. One of the reasons is the pressure and intimidation of clinics and providers, from picketing clinics to posting doctors' home addresses online to bomb threats to actual bombings of clinics and physical attacks on doctors.
Noteworthy: This got only a little response (so far), as opposed to the shrill reactions for most of my cartoons touching on abortion.
