The current issue of the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology contains an article reporting on a survey of 1800 obstetricans and gynecologists, Abortion Provision Among Practicing Obstetrician-Gynecologists. The authors summarize the survey results as follows:
Among practicing ob-gyns, 97% encountered patients seeking abortions, whereas 14% performed them. Female physicians were more likely to provide abortions than were male (18.6% compared with 10.6%, adjusted odds ratio 2.54, 95% confidence interval 1.57–4.08), as were those in the youngest age group, those in the Northeast or West, those in highly urban postal codes, and those who identify as being Jewish. Catholics, Evangelical Protestants, non-Evangelical Protestants, and physicians with high religious motivation were less likely to provide abortions.
