The new Glasgow branch of Medical Students for Choice is dedicated to producing future generations of doctors who will support reproductive choice.

Aspects of women’s reproductive healthcare (particularly abortion) remain the most highly stigmatised in medicine; however, when considering the principle of autonomy, the prioritisation of patient wellbeing, the psychological impact of unwanted pregnancy and the health risks of pregnancy in general, this is clearly not an acceptable state of affairs.

Today one of the greatest obstacles to safe and legal abortion around the world is the absence of trained providers. Without informed doctors women’s access to adequate healthcare is threatened, yet medical schools often don’t address the topic. We aim to supplement our own teaching with educational events and work with the medical school to improve the reproductive health curriculum.

We are entirely run by medical students, but all students are welcome to attend our events for interest.
